BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) – A report shows independent Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders made more than $1 million last year, when he ran for president as a Democrat.

The Burlington Free Press cites a U.S. Senate financial disclosure report showing the bulk of Sanders’ earnings in 2016 came from his books.

Sanders netted a $795,000 advance for his book detailing his presidential campaign called “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In.” A second version of the book and a 1997 memoir brought his income from books to $865,000.

Sanders earned $174,000 as a public servant. He also made $7,000 from his pension from Burlington for his time as mayor and royalties from a 1987 folk album.

Sanders donated proceeds from his book “The Speech” and several public speaking fees to charity.

    Communist rat. Why didn’t he keep 10 percent of it and give 90 percent of it to the government like he said should be implemented? Lord I wish my generation would realize the fraud this guy is.

      Calling Bernie Sanders a “fraud” is being nice! Could you imagine that idiot at the helm of this country? Only Hitlery would be worse!

      Not feeling the Bernn? Sanders, as well as all other democrats, will always be a tool bag.
