Sanders campaign started April 30. In this Politico story, the campaign stated they had raised $13.7 million from April 30th to June 30.

Campaign Finance Institute has two charts that support the reported numbers:

At the end of the day, nothing "mysterious" but a staffer making a mistake in the paperwork.
