The Hill newspaper released its annual report Tuesday on the wealth of members of Congress, revealing the richest lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, who began building his fortune 30 years ago by founding the company that makes Viper car alarm systems, tops the list this year with an estimated net worth of $355.4 million.
