How much is Chip worth?

Darned if I know.

I read a piece that said that 30% of the Tea Party Congressman owed a lot of money, credit card debt etc. I went to the Congressional website where you are supposed to be able to find out how much Congressman are worth. This information is required in order to find out what conflicts of interest they might have. Nada on Cravaack.

I read Jim Oberstar’s financial reports when I ran against him in 2006. He was worth something like seven million. I had to file my own reports to run. They were a major headache and my wife was not happy having to reveal her finances. Did Chip skip disclosure? If so, poop on him. He has the help of the whole Republican establishment to file the damn reports. I had to figure mine out by myself. It was worse than doing my income taxes.
