Sotomayor's finances look a lot like the average person's | McClatchy: Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor owns a condo valued at $1 million in New York's Greenwich Village but otherwise is a woman of fairly modest means, a newly filed report shows. On Thursday, Sotomayor advised the Senate Judiciary Committee that she has savings of about $32,000 as well as $15,000 in credit card debt. The 54-year-old appellate court judge also is on the hook for a $15,000 dentist bill.

Ummmm... No. Definitely not. People "of fairly modest means" don't have rights to defined benefit pensions with a market value of roughly $2.5 million.
