Jim DeMint, Leaving The Senate, Can Use The Money

The South Carolina Senator is one of the few non-millionaires in the millionaire’s club, with two 30-year mortgages listed totaling between $350,000 and $750,000 in debt and has almost no other financial assets besides two retirement accounts worth less than $15,000 each. He’s leaving for the Senate for the Heritage Foundation, whose current president makes more than $1 million.
