Man of the People
CommieTommie Harkin continues to see his finacial assets increase, at least doubled, from the previous year. The Ragister requested copies of disclosure forms members of Congress are required to file. The forms were filed Monday, but won't be released until June. These financial disclosure forms have many limitations. Members are not asked to list the exact value of their holdings but rather just a range. Neither the value of personally occupied homes nor spouses' salaries have to be reported. CommieTommie's assets rose from an estimated range of $4.8 million to $9.9 million, an increase from the previous year when their holdings were valued at a range of $1.9 million to $3.83 million. At this rate he'll soon be right up there with Uncle Fidel's estimated $900 million. Harkin's largest assets are held by his wife Ruth, a former top official with United Technologies Corp. who sits on the board of directors of ConocoPhillips, an oil and gas company. The disclosure forms show that Ruth Harkin held stock with a value of more than $1 million in United Technologies and received dividends and capital gains profits of more than $1 million from that stock, and also sold some of the stock. She also holds stock in ConocoPhillips with a value of $250,000 to $500,000. OIL MONEY? Where's the outrage from other fiberal dummycrats? Of course there's never been any outrage about CommieTommie's home in the Bahamas either! There's a real common man!
