Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista)
49th District: When Issa took the seat over from retiring Rep. Ron Packard (R-Oceanside) in 2001, the district included San Clemente and other parts of South Orange County. Since redistricting confined it to southwest Riverside and northern San Diego counties, the coverage area has taken in Canyon Lake, Lake Elsinore, Menifee, Oceanside, Perris, Temecula, Vista, Wildomar and the communities of Fallbrook, Julian and Valley Center.
Keep in mind that these revelations come on the heels of media reports showing members of the House and Senate have used financial information gleaned from their public service to enrich themselves via trading stocks and bonds. Of course, that practice also probably does not constitute a conflict of interest, at least it doesn't under the Capitol Dome.
