Who is Diana Louise DeGette?
She’s best known as a fanatic gun grabber and the Congresswoman from Colorado’s First District. She came to public attention when she made it crystal clear that the only thing she knew about guns was that she wanted to ban them. She believes gun magazines (the part that holds the bullets) are used up and thrown away once the bullets are shot.
In a recent public forum she smirked and told a retiree that he shouldn’t worry about defending himself because if he were attacked he should depend on the Denver cops (approximate wait time 17 minutes) and besides, he’s probably going to be dead anyway.
Let’s find out a little more about this live political hand grenade.
She’s married to a “Super Lawyer” named Lino S. Lipinsky de Orlov according to his listing at his law firm McKenna Long & Aldridge. Between them they own two homes, one in Colorado and one in Washington DC. Both have first and second mortgages somewhere between $465,000 and $1,050,000.
Other than two homes and big mortgages, she reported that she and her husband have investment assets between $823,000 and $2,095,000. So let’s call them millionaires. The couple add somewhere between $34,000 and $335,000 each year to their investments.
Note that thanks the very fuzzy disclosure requirements for members of Congress, it’s very hard to get a precise fix on just how rich these people are. Suffice it to say, they are among what the Occupy Movement would call the “1%.”
She gets nearly 90% of her campaign contributions from PACs and large contributors. We will be looking into Diana more in the future. Any of her constituents are free to post comments.
