Oberweis Criticizes Durbin's Millionaire Status Coming From Taxpayers Funded Job

It may be a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.


At Thursday’s GOP rally, Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Jim Oberweis led the party faithful in a chant against “millionaire” Dick Durbin, the Democratic incumbent.


Oberweis is himself a millionaire several times over, thanks to his family’s successful dairy business. Oberweis says Durbin became a millionaire in taxpayer-funded jobs, not through the private sector.


One recent study put Durbin’s total net worth at approximately $1 million.
