Rep. Darrell Issa, one of the richest members of Congress, is worth as much as $768 million, according to a financial disclosure report he filed last week.

The California Republican made nearly $25 million from investments in 2014 and has a net worth between $299 million and $768 million, including investments in property in California and Ohio. The reason for the wide spread is because members of Congress are required to disclose their financial holdings in broad ranges.

Issa has several accounts, including BlackRock and Putnam high yield accounts, worth north of $50 million.

The eight-term lawmaker and former House Oversight and Government Reform chairman has a sizable real estate portfolio, with several properties in California, including Lake Tahoe, Carlsbad and Vista. He also paid off a loan worth more than $50 million last year. According to his disclosure form a year ago, Issa was by far the wealthiest member of Congress.
