Yet again, the man who wants to tell you how your money should be spent fumbles around with his own finances. He missed the May 15th deadline for turning in his annual report that details his finances for the previously year. He received a 20-day extension to file them, so it’s now due June 4th but last summer Sanders even skimmed over some rules that required him to disclose the same information to the Federal Election Commission by getting a 45 day extension.
This may all seem… tedious and unimportant but this is a man who wanted to run this country. He can’t even keep up with himself.
This is also a guy who, while say he’s all for socialism, criticized Hillary Clinton for taking a six-figure sum for making a speech to Goldman Sachs
This is also a guy who, while saying he’s a socialist has over 30 mutual fund investments valued between nearly $200,000 and $800,000.

The U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics requires all 100 U.S. senators to file detailed financial disclosures generally cataloging what they own and what they owe each year. Senators must also itemize all the gifts and free trips they have received from private sources.
Sanders, who emphasized government transparency during his 2016 presidential campaign, also completely blew off Senate Ethics Committee financial documentation filing deadlines in 2012, 2014 and 2015…….
