Although Bernie Sanders is quick to cast aspersions on the wealthy for not disclosing their political activities, he is surprisingly mum about his own personal financial situation.

This seeming discrepancy in policy proposals and personal conduct was brought up in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, with the host expressing surprise that Hillary Clinton released her tax returns before Sanders did.
