Dianne Feinstein was raised with two younger sisters by her father, Leon Goldman, who was a surgeon and professor at the University of California, San Francisco, and her mother, Betty Goldman, who worked as a model. She went to a Jewish religious school, but later she entered the prestigious private Catholic high school the Convent of the Sacred Heart. Upon matriculation, she enrolled at Stanford University, and joined the Young Democrats. She graduated with a BA degree in History in 1955, and right after college, Dianne began to work for the Coro Foundation. Parallel with that, prior to becoming a politician, Dianne was a member of the California Women’s Parole Board.

Her first jobs were with the San Francisco city government during the 1960s and ‘70s, and she served on the San Francisco Board of Directors, from 1969 until 1978. During those nine years, Dianne ran for mayor of San Francisco twice, on both occasions being defeated by Joseph Alioto and George Moscone respectively. She became president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1978, and after the assassination of George Moscone and Harvey Milk, she automatically became mayor of the city, the first female to serve in that position, for ten years which added a considerable amount to her net worth.

During her tenure, she improved the infrastructure of the city a great deal, focusing mainly on the city’s cable car system, and was the head of the 1984 Democratic National Convention. After two terms she entered the 1990 elections for the Governor of California, however, she lost the election to Pete Wilson. Nevertheless, Dianne didn’t give up on her political career, as she won a special election to fill the Senate seat vacated a year earlier by Pete Wilson. Ever since she has held her position in the senate, which has only increased further her net worth.

While in the senate, Dianne has held several positions, including Chairman of the Senate Rules Committee from 2007 until 2009, Chairman of the Senate Narcotics Caucus from 2009 until 2015, and Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, also from 2009 until 2015, which have also contributed to her net worth.

Thanks to her accomplishments, Dianne received the Woodrow Wilson Award for public service in 2001, and in the following year she won the American Medical Association’s Nathan Davis Award for “the Betterment of the Public Health”.

Speaking about her personal life, Dianne Feinstein has been married to investment banker Richard C. Blum since 1980. Previously, she was married to Jack Berman (1956-1959), with whom she has a daughter, and was married to neurosurgeon Bertram Feinstein from 1962 to 1978.

  • When serial killer, Richard Ramirez, was part-way through his rampage, then-San Francisco Mayor Feinstein, without consulting police, held a news conference and displayed the model of Avia shoes that Ramirez had been wearing to each of the murder sites. When Ramirez saw the news conference on television, he threw the shoes off the Golden Gate Bridge and used a different pair for future murders. Police were incensed at Feinstein for revealing a key piece of information that they intentionally had been keeping secret precisely so that Ramirez would not switch to another pair.

She served as mayor of San Francisco from 1978-1988. In 1990, she beat then-state Attorney Gen. John Van de Kamp in the Democratic primary for Governor and then, narrowly, lost to then-GOP Sen. Pete Wilson. In 1992, Feinstein defeated then-state Controller Gray Davis in the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Wilson. That race was notorious because of Davis’ running ads comparing Feinstein to tax-evading hotelier Leona Helmsley. Feinstein went on to beat Republican John Seymour, a former state senator who Wilson had appointed to his old seat upon becoming Governor. In 1994, Feinstein only barely survived the GOP tide against multi-millionaire Republican Michael Huffington. In 2000, she had an easier time besting Silicon Valley moderate Rep. Tom Campbell. She has become a respected member of the Senate, gaining praise for her even-handed work on the Judiciary Committee.
