Bernie Sanders Made More Than $858,000 in Book Royalties Last Year: He’s Keeping Every Dollar

Written by  M.J. Randolph

Senator Bernie Sanders had to release a new financial disclosure for last year, which disclosed that he made $858,000 on two books. Let that sink in a bit. While Hillary Clinton's book Stronger Together sold only 2,912 copies during its first week -- which meant it was a certifiable flop by any measure -- apparently, Sanders fans were out buying up anything he wrote.

HeatStreetreports:

The disclosure provides new insight into how Sanders’ presidential campaign affected his own personal finances. It was due on May 15, but Sanders failed to file, instead seeking an extension. The book royalties were the most noteworthy new source of income Sanders reported in the election-year filings.

Most of that money, $795,000, comes from Our Revolution: A Future To Believe In, a book Sanders wrote for St. Martin’s Press. Published on Nov. 15, the book included Sanders’ account of the 2016 election. Hardcover copies sold for $27—the average amount contributed to Sanders’ presidential campaign.

Sanders also made 14 stops on a book tour to promote Our Revolution, receiving reimbursement from the publisher for airfare, ground transportation, lodging and meals, the financial disclosure says.

And that's not all. "Sanders received $63,750 in royalties for a book that hasn’t yet hit the shelves: The Bernie Sanders Guide to Political Revolution.

Better be sure he spends it quick. Life goes by quickly. Death tax should be high for him.

Ahhhh Come on Bernie and Share the Wealth! That's what you continuously preach isn't it?
Sorry Bernie. As long as you want to keep it - well I want to keep mine too!!!
The Dems (and Socialists) want us all to fall in lock step and march to their cadence - except for them, of course.
There are more millionaire Dems then Repb. in Congress - When do they share?

Wait a minute. I thought socialists believed in a one wage system so all citizen's are equal? Field worker, doctor, car mechanic, should all have same wages? I don't think the average citizen makes a million bucks.

He should share the wealth! Or tell your snowflakes to back off!

Hey wait a minute...Sanders needs to give every dime to the government for redistribution...??? If socialism is good enough for us....well it should be good enough for Bernie...right?

is this more money than others have made that have been brought down? If you remember, I think it was Newt G., that he filed against some other democrats and they quit... but he should pay taxes

His income was over $1 million last year. Perfect example of a hypocrite - He screamed for FREE everything, went around the country slamming the rich and calling them greedy, yet he's keeping all of his riches for himself and owns two (2) homes. So much for practicing what one preaches & walking the talk - He's the perfect "unaffiliated" jerk; however, I have to commend him for his brains in successfully duping SO many Americans by painting a pretty picture that the dumdums fell for while fattening his pockets, all done legally and right in their faces.

Ya and I think the DNC paid him to quietly go away along with a expensive beach house!

The headline is a lie: there is not evidence he will "keep every penny" He will, of course, pay taxes.
Fake headline/fake news.
