Bernie Sanders and his wife have bought a vacation home in North Hero, Vermont along Lake Champlain for $600 k.  The thing I don’t understand is how he can afford to do that when his net wealth is less than that amount.  In his 2016 disclosure form, his average net wealth stands at $528,014.

  • Bernie Sanders net worth: $528,014 (August 2015 average)
  • Bernie Sanders net worth estimate from May 2015: $440,511
  • Out of 100 U.S. Senators, Bernie Sanders’ net worth is #86.
  • Bernie Sanders minimum possible net worth 2015: $222,026
  • Bernie Sanders maximum possible net worth 2015: $769,002
  • Bernie Sanders net worth vs Jeb Bush net worth: 40 times smaller.
  • Bernie Sanders net worth vs Carly Fiorina net worth: 112 times smaller.
  • Bernie Sanders net worth vs Hillary Clinton net worth: 47 times smaller.
  • Bernie Sanders net worth vs Bill & Hillary Clinton net worth combined: 230 times smaller.
  • Bernie Sanders net worth vs Donald Trump net worth: 10,795 times smaller.
  • Bernie Sanders net worth vs median U.S. household net worth: 7.8 times larger.
  • Bernie Sanders net worth vs Bill Gates net worth: 151,515 times smaller.

You also have to remember that Bernie and his wife could be facing massive legal bills after she defrauded Vermont and bankrupted the university she was the president of.

So, the question is where did the money come from?  There are a couple of possible answers but note that these are all conjecture and none are proven.

  1. Politicians can use campaign contributions for personal use when they no longer plan on running for office.
  2.  Bernie or his wife were just hired by the Clinton Foundation.
  3.   Bernie was rewarded for calling for unity behind Clinton

Considering his advanced age, what bank would loan the bulk of such a purchase?  Or it could be legitimate if he sold all of his assets.
