Issa tops The Hill's 50 Wealthiest: Page 46 of 51


Upton's biggest claim to fame might be his model niece, Kate Upton, but the powerful House chairman is also an heir to the Whirlpool fortune.

The congressman is the grandson of one of the founders Whirlpool and holds at least $1 million worth of stock in the company with his wife, Amey. But the majority of Upton's fortune is in family trusts worth at least $5 million that are not directly under his control.

Upton's spouse also holds assets in several other large companies, such as AT&T; Exxon Mobil; General Electric and Pfizer. The couple holds together at least $250,000 in Pepsi.

Upton has two liabilities, including a home mortgage worth at least $250,000 and a home line of equity valued at a minimum of $15,000.
