How much are they worth?

54. Mimi Walters (R-Irvine)

Net worth: -$619,000

Walters, a freshman, is No. 531 in Congress with a minimum net worth of a negative $618,994. A former investment banker who spent 10 years in the state legislature, Walters' top assets include investments in companies owned by her husband, David Walters. Her biggest liability is a $1 million mortgage. The Orange County Register reported earlier this year that Walters and her husband had sold their Laguna Niguel home for $6.3 million. Walters faced an ethics probe in 2012 after her office made calls to state officials to check the status of claims filed by her husband's company. The state Fair Political Practices Commission later found insufficient evidence that Walters had violated conflict of interest laws, but said her actions created an "appearance" of a conflict and advised her to be more cautious in the future.

About this data: These are the assets disclosed for calendar year 2014 compiled by Roll Call. They are ranked from largest to smallest. Financial disclosure rules allow lawmakers to report broad ranges of minimums for both assets and liabilities, starting at $1 to $1,000 and topping out at $50 million or higher, so it is impossible to offer precise figures. The minimum values shown are how Roll Call calculated the net worth for each member.

Roll Call assigns assets and liabilities into several categories. The disclosure forms indicate if the asset or liability is owned solely by the member, by the member’s spouse, by the member’s dependent(s) or jointly owned by the member and spouse. The names of the assets and liabilities appear as they were entered on the forms filed with the clerk of the House and the Senate Select Committee on Ethics.
