Rep. Heath Shuler: 37th Richest Member of Congress

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.
