Jane Sanders is writing a book about & # 39; her and Bernie's & # 39; s experience together in public service & # 39 ;, says the Democratic presidential candidate's campaign.
Sanders has already received an advance on the book of at least $ 106,250 from St. Martin & Press, a subsidiary of Macmillan. The advance is reflected in the tax documents of the 2017 couples.
A campaign employee told DailyMail.com that the publication date was not decided. The campaign revealed the existence of the memoirs when it issued ten years of Sanders' tax returns.
Jane Sanders writes a book about & # 39; her and Bernie's & # 39; s experience together in public service & # 39 ;, says the Democratic presidential candidate's campaign.
The Sanders tax documents show that they earned more than $ 1 million for the book Bernie Sanders wrote about his long-shot White House bid. The memoirs of Sanders & # 39; 2016 were an instant bestseller.
He told DailyMail.com on Saturday that he would not apologize & # 39; for writing the best-selling book that has been translated into at least five languages and refused Monday at a television town hall to explain why he has given only 3.4 percent of his assets to the poor.
Jane and Bernie Sanders' campaign books are published by St. Martin & # 39; s Press. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday about the manuscript his wife would say.
The Sanders campaign unveiled Jane's book in a statement about the couple's tax returns on Monday. It yielded the value of the documents for ten years, fulfilling a promise made by the candidate and then dragging his feet weeks ago.
Jane Sanders is listed as a & # 39; writer & # 39; on the IRS form of the 2018 couples, suggesting that she devoted much of the last part of the previously unpublished book to the fact that St. Martin & # 39; s Press advanced her more than $ 100,000 to write.
She recently announced that she and her son David Driscoll were ending their work in a think tank named after her husband. They examined the annual salary of $ 100,000 he received for his work, in light of the latest offer from the White House of Bernie Sanders.
The Sanders Institute, as it is called, will close its doors in May. It will not reopen until the end of his next campaign for a higher position.
Bernie and Jane Sanders donated $ 25,000 to the organization in 2017. They paid charity contributions in 2018 to other organizations equivalent to their gross adjusted income of 3.4 percent in 2018, the senator's presidential campaign revealed.
Bernie Sanders told DailyMail.com on Saturday that he would not & # 39; apologize & # 39; for writing the best-selling book that has been translated into at least five languages and refused to go to a television town hall on Monday to explain why he was just 3.4 percent of his wealth lost to the poor
That amount does not include the proceeds from his book & # 39; The Speech & # 39 ;, his campaign stated, because they are donated directly to charity.
& # 39; The Sanders donations have mainly gone to senior citizen centers, low-income organizations, educational entities and groups for environmental conservation and housing, & # 39; the campaign claimed.
His campaign acknowledged in the same statement about Sanders' tax returns that Jane is releasing a book.
& # 39; Sanders revenues increased significantly in 2016 thanks to the progress and royalties from its bestseller Our Revolution: A Future To Believe In, which has been translated into 5 languages and published in a number of countries & # 39; , the statement said.
& # 39; The youth version of Our Revolution, the publication of Where We Go From Here and an advance on a book currently being written by Jane Sanders are also reflected in the tax returns. & # 39;
In the tax documents of the 2017 couples, Jane Sanders reveals $ 106,250 of her work as a book author.
The advance is handsome, but not nearly as large as the $ 14 million that Hillary Clinton received for & # 39; Hard Choices & # 39; or the dazzling $ 65 million that Barack and Michelle Obama received for their White House memoirs.
Sanders & # 39; best-selling book, & # 39; Our Revolution & # 39 ;, received an advance of $ 795,000. He received an advance of $ 63,750 on the adaptation of a book by a child.
The Vermont senator admitted last week that the campaign he published after not winning the 2016 Democratic nomination yielded more than a million dollar profit.
Asked by DailyMail.com on Saturday at a campaign stop in Gary, Indiana, as his millionaire status & # 39; conflicting & # 39; is with the message he insists, replied Sanders, who is again seeking the presidency, & I don't think so.
& # 39; I didn't know it was a crime to write a good book & # 39 ;, he said to applaud participants at a breakfast round table who had put together his campaign.

Sanders makes a bus trip through the upper Midwest. His first stop on Saturday was Gary. He approached DailyMail.com's question about his wealth and wrote a bestseller
Sanders claimed that he did not want to take the wealth of Americans, he wanted them to pay a higher tax on it.
& # 39; I have always felt that we need a progressive tax system that demands that the richest people in this country finally pay their share of the tax, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; If I earn a lot of money, you earn a lot of money, I believe that, & he said to his guests. & # 39; I therefore do not apologize for writing a book that was number three on the New York Times Best Seller, translated into five or six languages. & # 39;
Sanders published a campaign day after Hillary Clinton lost the presidency to Donald Trump. It was opened at number 3 on the New York Times bestseller list
He successfully changed the subject after telling travel and local press that he was suffering from the investigation.
& # 39; Maybe we want to talk about Gary, Indiana. Maybe we want to talk about poverty, & # 39; he said. & # 39; This might be a good time to talk about something else that we need to discuss. & # 39;
The central campaign message of the democratic socialist over two presidential runs was an attack on the country's millionaires and billionaires and a demand that they share their & # 39; fair share & # 39; in taxes pay for the financing of universal health care, tuition free college and a litany of other progressive promises.
Sanders said that billionaire president Donald Trump should release his tax return, even though the old legislator had not released his own lawyer until Monday.
He said in an interview last week that his book & # 39; Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In & # 39; more than a million dollars in profit.
& # 39; I wrote a bestseller & # 39 ;, he told the New York Times. & # 39; If you write a bestseller book, you can also become a millionaire. & # 39;
Sanders released a second book in November: & # 39; Where We Go from Here: Two Years in the Resistance & # 39 ;.
