This 74 year old senator, a democrat from West Virginia, is worth between 5 and 8 million. He has served as their senator for 11 years, and Governor from 2005 to 2010.
His wealth comes from the coal industry. He founded Enersystem, a coal brokerage business of which he made most of his wealth, and $491,000, last year. His son now controls this business. Coal, a dirty energy, is in direct conflict with clean energy. No wonder he blocks climate change proposals.
He has several grandchildren, guess he isn’t thinking of their future in his greed.
