HOH would love to get a look at what’s on the iPods of Members of Congress, but we’ll settle for the next best thing. HOH caught up with lawmakers last week at the Grammys on the Hill, an annual event that honors politicians, educators and musicians for their work to protect artists’ rights.
We asked Members who were some of their favorite musicians. Here’s what they said:
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.): Martina McBride
Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.): Jon Bon Jovi (who’s in contention with Bruce Springsteen for the title of the Bard of New Jersey)
Each year since 1990, CQ Roll Call has reviewed the financial disclosures of all 541 senators, representatives and delegates to determine the 50 richest members of Congress. This year's report, derived from forms covering the calendar year 2012, shows it took a net worth of $6.67 million to crack the exclusive club.
