LI House reps' net worth above '10 median

The net worth of most Long Island U.S. House members exceeds the $756,765 median for Congress in 2010, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Lawmakers report financial worth each year, but in large ranges; the center figures averages within those ranges. It put Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola) as the House's 81st richest, $3.75 million; Rep. Tim Bishop (D-Southampton), 167th, $1.28 million; Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-Roslyn Heights), 203rd, $862,510; Rep. Pete King (R-Seaford), 351st, $158,001; Rep. Steve Israel (D-Dix Hills), 420th, minus $55,000 (due to debts outstripping assets.) -- Tom Brune
