Issa tops The Hill's 50 Wealthiest: Page 16 of 51


DelBene is no Bill Gates, but she has him to thank for her personal fortune.

The Washington Democrat worked for 12 years at Microsoft, where her husband, Kurt, has also worked. The two have some big interests in the computer giant, including a jointly owned $250,000 Microsoft asset and another $1 million Microsoft holding attributed to Kurt.

The lawmaker also has a $100,000 asset in Microsoft on her own.

DelBene participated in the Microsoft health plan last year due to her husband's employment there, according to her disclosure statement.

Also included on DelBene's 2012 form was an investment in a movie titled "Dumping Lisa" that was deemed worthless last year.
