For someone who constantly berates wealthy people as the cause of all the evil in the world, Elizabeth Warren doesn’t seem to shy away when she gets offered lots of money for anything.
It has now been revealed that she got a big payday for her latest book.
Mass Live reported:
US Sen. Elizabeth Warren received $200k advance for latest book
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren reported nearly $224,000 in book-related income in 2016 — the bulk of which came in relation to her most recent publication, “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.”
The Massachusetts Democrat collected $200,000 from publisher Henry Holt & Co. as part of an advance for her newest book, which was released in mid-April, according to an annual financial disclosure form filed earlier this month.
In addition to the advance for her book, the senator reported more than $23,600 in royalties from CCH Inc. dba Wolters Kluwer Law & Business — formerly Aspen Publishers — for a series of textbooks and other publications she has helped author.
The amount the senator pulled in for her books in 2016, however, was far below that reported in earned, non-investment income in the previous year.
Warren, who has seven royalty agreements spanning from December 1985 to November 2016, reported collecting a $625,000 advance from Henry Holt & Co. and $29,374 in royalties from CCH Inc. dba Wolters Kluwer Law & Business in financial reports filed for 2015.
It’s different when she becomes wealthy, everyone.
Why is that so hard to understand?
