U.S. Sen. McCaskill ranks 24th on the annual list of the 50 wealthiest members of Congress, down from 20th last year. McCaskill’s assets totaled around $14.93 million, which is $700,000 less than last year.

As an analysis notes, most of her assets are held by her husband, Joseph Shepard. Those assets sparked controversy last year during McCaskill’s re-election campaign when it came to light that firms connected to Shepard landed around $39 million in federal low-income housing payments during McCaskill’s time in the Senate.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., ranks as the richest member of Congress, with assets totaling more than $355 million.
