It's no secret that many members of Congress are extremely wealthy, but it may not be quite as well known that many of them are seriously in debt.
A new report by the Center for Responsive Politics shows that numerous Congressional members owed between $238.9 million and $568.3 million to creditors, not including home loan mortages. Some have credit card balances of upwards of $100,000.
No Congressional members from Ohio made the list of those who owed the most. One familiar name was among the top, though: Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who ran for president in 2008.
