Last week we requested personal financial disclosures for a few senior White House staffers. These documents list the assets officials own–property, stocks and mutual funds. The documents can be requested on the White House website by clicking here..
In addition to assets, these disclosures also tell you who gave these high profile staffers gifts or paid for their travel. For instance, on page 16 of Rahm Emanuel’s disclosure, we can see that he received tickets to the Bruce Springsteen concert last summer. We previously reported that 18 members of Congress benefited from fundraisers held at the concert (for details, see our report on Party Time). Who gave Emanuel the tickets? According to the disclosure, it was the Boss himself.
These are the personal financial disclosures we’ve requested so far:
Rahm Emanuel – White House Chief of Staff
Mona Sutphen –Deputy Chief of Staff
Jim Messina – Deputy Chief of Staff
David Axelrod – Senior Advisor
Valerie Jarrett – Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs
