Issa tops The Hill's 50 Wealthiest: Page 3 of 51


McCaul's two-year reign atop The Hill's Wealthy List came to an end as his minimum net worth dropped by nearly $200 million.

The significant drop in his fortune came because he chose to report his wife and family's holdings differently in 2012.

McCaul reported several trusts worth more than $50 million in 2011 that were attributed to his wife, Linda. On the latest form, those assets were listed as worth more than $1 million each, as indicated by an amendment filed later by McCaul, reducing the congressman's wealth dramatically under The Hill's methodology.

Linda is the daughter of Lowry Mays, the founder of radio titan Clear Channel Communications.

McCaul included one liability on his 2012 report — a $500,000 mortgage on a personal residence.
