Rep. Heath Shuler: 37th Richest Member of Congress

by Ryan Hudson

Roll Call recently released their list of The 50 Richest Members of Congress, and checking in at No. 37, with an estimated worth of $7.81 million, is former Washington Redskins' quarterback, Heath Shuler.

It was a good financial year for the one-time NFL quarterback, who added a more than 20 percent increase, about $1.3 million, to his net worth.

Shuler’s investment in River Crest Development, a Del Rio, Tenn.-based real estate development firm, jumped to a minimum value of $1 million, doubling from its $500,000 minimum rating last year.

To compare, the richest member is Sen. Ted Kennedy, with an assumed worth of $230.98 million.
