Virginia General Assembly boasts at least 13 millionaires

Anita Kumar

The General Assembly has at least 13 millionaires, according to the statement of economic interests filed with the state and released today by the Virginia Public Access Project, a non-partisan tracker of money in politics.

But state law doesn't require legislators to provide all their assets, just a certain range of stocks, so it's unclear who else may be millionaires through real estate or other means. Here are the millionaires we do know:

In the House: Watkins Abbitt (I-Appomattox); John Cox, (R-Hanover); Scott Garrett, (R-Lynchburg); Kaye Kory, (D-Fairfax); Danny Marshall, (R-Danville); Bob Purkey, (R-Virginia Beach) and Tom Rust (R-Fairfax).

In the Senate: Janet Howell (D-Fairfax); Jeff McWaters (R-Virginia Beach), Tommy Norment (R-James City), Walter Stosch, (R-Henrico), Frank Wagner, (R-Virginia Beach), and John Watkins, (R-Powhatan).

Surprised Barbara Comstock is not on the list. I've been to her neighborhood in one of the wealthier (though not super-rich) parts of McLean. Zero houses in that area go for under $1 million.

Not at all surprised the the millionaires are disproportionately Republican.

This shows how inexact the financial reports are. Chuck Colgan is hands down the richest legislator - Colgan Air.

And these millionaire legislators are banding together to preserve their comfy cozy lives on the backs of our children:

“The Governor recommends drastic additional cuts of $730 Million to K-12 public education, $38 Million to health care for 28,000 low-to-moderate income children, $24 Million to services for at-risk youth, and over $10 Million for early childhood initiatives. These four cuts alone represent almost half of the total budget reduction in the Governor’s recommendations and will negatively impact almost every Virginia family – and Virginia’s future.”
