A Woman's Worth
$12.1 million to $23.97 million, for CommieTommie Harkin, according to the Omaha World Herald.
Harkin's largest asset is his wife Ruth.
Thanks to her success in in the corporate world. The senator’s estimated wealth jumped by more than 500 percent between 2004 and 2010, from $3 million to $17 million.
Currently, Ruth, has three sets of stocks each worth more than $1 million: Conoco Phillips, Phillips 66 and United Technologies Corp. The couple also own a vacation home in the Bahamas worth between $500,000 and $1 million.
Hence, the secondary nickname of Tommie Bahama.
Ruth Harkin earned more than $1,000 in salary from ConocoPhillips, United Technologies Corp. and National Toll Road.
I'm sure well more than $1,000 and the scientific community is united in that fact.
Most of the assets reported by the Harkins have been made possible by Ruth’s private-sector work. He views their life partnership as crucial to his own career, but his policy and political views are his own, as are hers. His policy views have not been guided by personal financial interests. Nor have his actions as a Senator, or information gained as a Senator, guided business dealings.
CommieTommie will certainly leave CONgress richer that when he entered.
