Tommy Thompson ‘s newfound wealth

Thompson, now worth at least $13 million, no longer has a crash pad in Washington, D.C. Beginning in 2001, he served as U.S. health and human services secretary and then worked for the D.C. powerhouse firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld until he quit earlier this year to run for U.S. Senate.

Over the past decade, he bought and sold nine townhouses in and around Alexandria, Va. He auctioned off his last set of digs for $700,000 in June 2011, just nine months after he closed on it.
