Senator McConnell's Record on his Personal Finances

LIE: Senator McConnell got rich at the taxpayers' expense while serving in the Senate.

The Truth:

- The Washington Post fact checked Alison Lundergan Grimes' false claim that Senator McConnell has given himself pay raises and "quadrupled his net worth on the backs of hardworking Kentuckians who can't afford it." She was given 3 out of 4 Pinocchios.

- The increase in Senator McConnell’s recorded household income came when his wife, Elaine Chao, received a large financial gift from her mother right before she passed away.

- Senator McConnell has voted against a pay raise for himself 8 times.

-  Mitch donates over $5,000 a year to charity to offset the health premium contribution that all senators receive under Obamacare.
