Pennsylvania Democrat Joe Sestaks campaign has repeatedly referred to his Republican rival for the Senate as a millionaire to suggest his policies will serve the rich. But Sestak himself could be worth as much as $2.7 million, according to a report in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Sestaks 2009 disclosure shows his retirement savings, bank accounts, and stock and mutual fund holdings are worth between $969,000 and $2,722,000. His two homes are appraised at $800,000 and $334,000.
Toomeys reported assets are worth between $2.02 million and $4.9 million.

How does som eone who spent a lifetime in government get to ba e millionaire?
Harry Reid too.. he has never held a private sector job, if I remember correctly- and started out poor.
But he is now very wealthy
Cue the “Huge Manatee!!!!!”
Sestak is your typical retired “Flag Officer” “perfumed price” Whore!
Sestak: Look in the dictionary under “Feckless” and “Douchebag”. His picture appears in both instances...
No knock on people who choose military careers and rise to the top. Most actually have to earn those promotions. But Sestak was a peacetime admiral appointed by Bill Clinton, not the normal military guy who had to earn it.
Sestak’s campaign has been a disaster for some time now. He’s got a far-left track record but claims he’s independent. He was bribed by Obama, who stopped by for several campaign visits, by the way, and then turns around and insists he’s not afraid to stand up to The One. This latest bout of hypocrisy is just icing on the cake.
Sadly the Sestak type is becoming more and more typical of today’s Flag and General Officer Corps.
You are correct.
My son, a Navy Captain, worked around sestak and had no use for him.
When Adm. Mullen was promoted and became sestak's boss he gave "honest joe" 24 hours to resign or get booted.
My son has had enough of barackhusseinosamaobama as the CIC and after 24 years, has tendered his resignation.
He was shooting for 30 but not with this CIC.
I was 20 yr 1 Month 18 Days(but whose counting) US Navy Retired and watched Bush 41 and Klintoon destroy my Military. Most if not all of todays admiralty were late Bush 41 and Klintoon appointees. True POSs!
Since when is success something to be ridiculed anyway? I’m getting really sick of it. Rich liberals are fine with themselves being rich and successful but deride any one else that dares to be or strive for the same.
What we did in Delaware, Democrats did in Pennsylvania.
Some will regret it on Nov. 3rd, some won’t, despite who wins or loses.
But it’s an interesting parallel - I think the race in PA would be much tighter if it were Toomey v. Specter (but still ultimately go to Toomey).
Old stuff, but the polls showed Specter much farther and consistently behind Toomey than they did Sestak. There was so much video of Specter going both ways endorsing Republicans and Democrats, rallies with Bush, then with Obama, that it would have probably been a walk in the park.
As a retired CPO (88), I concur. My son, a LT also concurs.
If we had a drinking game for the “millionaires and billionaires” talking point, none of us would be able to post.
And by that I mean, monre oe uws wikld we gblr co piwg.
Public SERVANTS sure do get a lot of money
Huh? Sestak has that much dough?
Hard to see how he got it unless he was bankrolled big time while in Congress for what, four years?
As a busted Rear Admiral (from Vice to Rear...), he doesn’t get that much in retirement and I find it hard to believe he such a wizard in investments.
Oh, he did marry very late in life to an inside the Beltway operative..so between savings from being single and marrying a career DC-er, maybe it could happen...
Amen to that, brother...
I could name you some names as prime examples...
