http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5878433/Bernie-Sanders-makes-1million-second-year-row.html

Quote:
Bernie Sanders has earned more than $1million for the second year in a row

The 76-year-old Vermont senator made nearly $1.06million in 2017

$885,767 of his income came from royalties and advances on a new book deal

He first hit the million mark in 2016 after publishing book Our Revolution following Trump's election and is due to release another book later this year

For many years Sanders, a harsh critic of wealth inequality, had one of the lowest incomes in Congress


Quote:
Sanders is now officially part of the one per cent, a group he has long slammed for creating economic inequality.

He earned it through book sales, if I'm not mistaken. More power to him. He's still probably the poorest member to caucus with the Senate Democrats.

I'm sure he is giving it all away to the 99%. Right? Right? Instead of putting MY money in their hands surely it would be easier for him to just give away his money!
