Joe Barton (R-TX)
Money is gushing into the personal account of Joe Barton thanks to a fortuitous business deal he made with one of his longtime campaign donors.
Rep. Joe Barton bought an interest in natural gas wells, and has gone to great lengths to conceal the true origins of this investment, violating federal law and House rules in the process.
Rep.Barton is a fourteen-term member of Congress, representing Texas’ 6th congressional district. He is a member and chairman emeritus of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
