Many of America’s elected officials curiously end up far wealthier after spending years in office than they were going in, and Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is no exception.

As the most powerful Democrat in the United States Congress for much of the last two decades, Pelosi’s total wealth has risen from $41 million in 2004 to roughly $115 million, according to campaign finance watchdog Open Secrets. A good chunk of that newfound wealth has come from stock trading on industries that Pelosi has been directly involved in as a Congressional leader, according to a new analysis from liberal journalist Glenn Greenwald.
