Forms Reveal Kansas Senators' Finances

By  | 

Newly released federal disclosure forms show Senator Pat Roberts is financially comfortable and Senator Sam Brownback still has considerable wealth.

But neither Kansas Republican is in the upper echelon of a Senate increasingly occupied by millionaires.

Assets and liabilities on the financial disclosure forms are reported in broad ranges that make it impossible to know exactly how much each lawmaker is worth.

Brownback and his wife have a blind trust worth between $1 million and $5 million.

Roberts' assets are mostly in real estate.

Democratic Senator Jon Corzine of New Jersey had total assets of
about $85 million to $261 million.
