Inouye No. 1 Among Hawaii Delegates in Estimated Net Worth12/14/2011
Based on required disclosures, Inouye could be worth as much as $4.4 million, which ranks him 186th wealthiest among 535 members of Congress. Rep. Mazie Hirono appears to be the next most affluent from Hawaii, with a net worth of as much as $3.4 million.
No. 1 on the list is California Republican Darrell Issa, whose net worth is estimated to be as high as $701 million.
Gauging a lawmaker's net worth is an inexact science because required disclosure forms do not mandate exact values but rather a range. To get a sense of the net worth of members of Congress, the center added up reported assets, then subtracted liabilities.
