3. From VT Digger..


Meanwhile, Vermontís other senator, Democrat Patrick Leahy, filed his report on time.
All U.S. senators are required to file annual reports with the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics, detailing their assets, liabilities and investments, as well as gifts and travel provided by private entities.


Sanders was granted a 20-day extension, and his disclosure is now due on June 4. According to Senate rules, extensions may be granted for up to 90 days.

Once filed, the 2016 report will shade in some of Sandersí financial details during an exceptionally busy year for the senator, who ran an upstart bid for president before writing a best-selling book reflecting on the campaign.


Since 2012, Leahy has never missed a deadline or requested an extension, while online records show Sanders requested filing extensions on his 2012, 2014 and 2015 reports.


Thank you, factfinder
