Socialist Sanders Now Owns Three Homes and Is Worth Close to $2 Million

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has based his political career on championing socialist policies while claiming to be fighting for the working class, but a new Politico report on Friday shows that like any good socialist leader, Sanders has profited immensely from his public platform.

According to Politico, Sanders now owns three homes and has a net worth that is “approaching at least $2 million, taking into account his publicly outlined assets and liabilities along with the real estate he owns outright.”

“In a strict, bottom-line sense, Sanders has become one of those rich people against which he has so unrelentingly railed. The champion of the underclass and castigator of “the 1 percent” has found himself in the socio-economic penthouse of his rhetorical bogeymen.”

This is a stark difference from four years ago when ” Sanders had that credit card debt and two mortgages that ranged from $250,001 to $500,000.”

Sanders’ new found wealth is in large part due to his recent successful book sales.

“In 2016, though, book money began to pile up. He got a $795,000 advance to write Our Revolution. He pocketed an additional $70,484 in royalties. In 2017, the book royalties added up to $880,091.14. And last year, while they dipped, they still were a hunk of money: $392,810.37.”

“I wrote a best-selling book,” Sanders recent told the New York Times when asked about his wealth. “If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.”
