U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ message of income inequality resonated with many voters in 2016 — and now the senator himself may know how the other half lives.
A financial disclosure document filed in May shows that the indepedent lawmaker from Vermont made more than $1 million in 2017, given him income of that figure or more for the second year in a row, VTDigger reported.
Most of that income – $885,767 – came from cash advances and royalties for his 2016 book, “Our Revolution,” which recounted the Sanders’ failed bid for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

The same book also outlined the political ideas that helped Sanders pose a strong threat to Hillary Clinton’s bid for nomination.
