Take a look at the three houses of ‘best-known millionaire socialist’ Bernie Sanders

Despite being a self-described socialist and a scourge of the elite classes, Bernie Sanders is in fact a millionaire with a property portfolio with three houses, depicted in exclusive DailyMail.com photos.

The property portfolio of the 78-year-old Vermont senator was mocked by President-President Mike Bloomberg during Wednesday’s debate, as he noted: “The most famous socialist in the country happens to be a three-house millionaire. What have I missed?’

Sanders, who has taken the lead in recent national polls in the race, has had to defend his health, his ability to defeat President Trump in November, and now his estimated $ 2.5 million.

Although Sanders wants to impose heavy taxes on the rich, his homes, which according to Zillow together are worth nearly $ 2 million, are much more than the working people he could ever afford to be champions.

He owns a main residence in Burlington, Vermont, a one-bedroom pied-à-terre in Washington, DC, just an 800-meter walk from the Capitol Building, and recently dropped $ 575,000 in cash for a lakeside cabin complete with a guest cottage in North Hero Island, Vermont in the summer of 2016.

Although the 99-year-old wooden camp house on an island in the middle of Lake Champlain is unremarkable compared to many of its neighbors, it is the way Sanders and his second wife Jane bought the house that sparked controversy.

They picked up the property after Burlington College – where Jane was a former president – was forced to close due to debt. Students were so upset that they held a sham funeral and carried a coffin through the streets of Vermont’s largest city, where Bernie first made his name as a four-year mayor in the 1980s.

The money problems of the alternative college started when Jane was the driving force behind a deal to pay $ 10 million for a piece of Burlington real estate to give the college its first campus.

Bernie and Jane Sanders bought the house by the lake two months after the college closed its doors for good. It is listed in the city registers as 'Islands Trust' property, with an address in the Burlington couple's home. The couple say they have paid for the house with the proceeds from the sale of the home of her deceased parents in Maine. But records discovered by the VTDigger showed that she had to split the money with two brothers and only received $ 150,000 for that house

Just a year after that deal in 2010, she was assisted by the college and received a “gold parachute” of $ 200,000, according to The New York Times who breathe new life into the controversy about the lecture in a front page story.

“There is no doubt that the collapse of the college in 2016 can be traced back to Ms. Sanders’ decision to defend an aggressive camp – critics say recklessly – to buy the land,” the Times reported.

Federal officials have investigated the college’s finances, but there are never any costs involved.

Bernie and Jane bought the house by the lake two months after the college closed its doors for good. It is listed in the city registers as ‘Islands Trust’ property, with an address in the Burlington couple’s home.

The couple say they have paid for the four-bedroom home with the proceeds from selling the home to her deceased parents’ lake in Bridgton, Maine.

But records discovered by VTDigger showed that she had to divide the money with two brothers and received only $ 150,000 for that house.

“My family had had a lake in Maine since 1900, but we hadn’t had time to go there in recent years – especially since my parents died,” Jane told Vermont’s website, Seven days.

“We finally let go and that allowed us to buy a spot on the islands – something I had always hoped for,” she said.

Sanders has built up his political reputation by attacking 'millionaires and billionaires', but has earned a small fortune with his successful 2016 book Our Revolution. His financial unveiling of the Congress, published in May, showed that he was firmly in the country's 1 percent and made nearly $ 1.06 million in 2017 - the second year in a row he had reached the million. More than 80 percent of his income came from his book. Pictured: Sanders' main house in Vermont

When asked about his seven-digit income at a CNN town hall in April, he was not apologetic and said, “I plead guilty for writing a book that was an international bestseller, okay?” “If you write a book at the top of the list of New York Times bestsellers, you will earn money.

To become a member of the top 1 percent, a person must earn approximately $ 390,000.

“If you write a book at the top of the list of New York Times bestsellers, you’ll earn money. And I earned money.

“I suspect my salary will go back to $ 173,000 in a few years, which a member of Congress will get,” he added, raising laughter because he seemed to admit that he would not win the presidency that pays $ 400,000 a year.
