Wasserman Schultzís Luxury Cars and Growing Net Worth Raise Questions [pics of her cars]
Shark Tank ^ | 9/11/12 | Javier Manjarres

Posted on 09/11/2012 11:49:10 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has famously stated that she is a “middle class American,” and it was this very claim that prompted many of her critics to openly question whether or not it was a realistic assessment of her personal income and assets....

...reviews of Wasserman Schultz’ congressional financial disclosures revealed a not widely known fact that she owns a second home in New Hampshire and is also not required to disclose her husband’s salary...

So when you get down to it, Wasserman Schultz’s claim that “I am a middle class’ American” argument really has no credibility, especially now that it’s been discovered that the Schultz’s own or lease $100K in automobiles in addition to their two homes whose estimated value is about $1 million.


TOPICS: News/Current Events; Politics/Elections; US: Florida
KEYWORDS: graft; hack; ripoff

Here is a picture of the Schultz family’s ’luxury’ vehicles parked in their driveway, partisan bumper stickers and all. Note that both of the ’vanity’ license plates are “Member of Congress” plates, the late model Corvette having a glaring ‘DWS’ on it. The white Infinity SUV sports a “Pink Slip Rick’ Scott bumper sticker, as well as two Obama for President ’2012′ bumper stickers

These Democrats always live The Lives Of The Rich And Famous and no one says “boo” about it. The politicians are the strangest of all. I mean, if Barbara Streisand or Michael Moore or Alec Baldwin want to live in multi-million dollar homes and drive luxury cars around, hey, they earned their money by their own talents, however dubious. They’re hypocrites, but that’s not a crime.

But these congresspeople make a decent upper-middle-class salary. How come so many of them live like royalty? Why is it off-limits? It’s not off-limits if its a Republican, after all.

If you are buying a sports car and SUV,and one of the vehicles is a foreign make,you definetly want the domestic to be the SUV.

Really, an Infinty QX over a Cadillac Escalade?

Even in South Beach,the Caddy has more cachet.

I’m sure the Vette and the Infiniti have a much larger carbon footprint than a Prius. I mean these are Gore cars.

She probably got the new Government Motors Employee option - "Front Bench Seat".

Stupid post. Makes us all look like nuts here at FR.

A Corvette and a Toyota SUV.

Big deal.

I own a big Harley, a 51 Ford Hot Rod, an FJ Cruiser, and a Toyota Coralla.

I’m a single dad of two small kids and make a reasonable living.

So what’s your point?

I quickly read the Corvette’s license plate and thought it said OWS which being marble mouth Schultz, it wouldn’t surprise me if she supports that.

Children, too - if the decals on that SUV's rear window are accurate.

Anyone who puts a bumper sticker on a vet should be shot on sight.

“Stupid post. Makes us all look like nuts here at FR.”

I can’t help but agree. There are thousands of substantive issues that are far more important than Debbie’s cars or Michelle’s big butt. Just their absurd speeches recently serve as examples. BTW I know I’m throwing rocks from my own glass house but with so few days left before the election, tit for tat name calling only amuses the strong partisans on either side.

I agree. This isn’t exactly “luxury”. She’s a Congress-critter, and the Head of the DNC, so I was expecting like a Lamborghini.

Looking at the back of the SUV -- I'd conclude that the owner doesn't pay much attention to details -- like turn signals, and the other traffic -- and it would be a car to stay well away from. Particularly when riding a bicycle or motorcycle.

Chevrolet Corvette, typical price around $70,000.

Infiniti QX56, typical price around $70,000.

That’s more money than the single most popular car in America’s wealthiest zip codes: The Mercedes E-class. Those are luxury vehicles and gas-guzzlers by anyone’s standards.

And yes, they appear in many ‘middle-class’ driveways.

Well, admittedly the two homes worth $1M make the point better, but we’ve yet to see the kind of place she has in New Hampshire.
