Bernie Sanders 3

  • Sanders reported receiving more than $26,000 in royalties from his filibuster-inspired book in 2011 and 2012. He said he donated the money to charity.
  • Sanders’ estimated net worth, $330,507, makes him one of the nation’s poorest senators, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
  • Sanders — despite his big-money-in-politics opposition — is supported by a super PAC calling itself Ready for Bernie Sanders 2016. Perhaps appropriately, the super PAC hasn’t reported raising any money yet.
