Bernie Sanders avoids financial disclosure again. Is he a hypocrite on transparency?

Because Sanders has been a decades-long crusader for financial transparency in politics, the news that he will not disclose his own finances while running for president is galling to many.

Sanders requested two 45-day extensions during the presidential race, saying he did not have time to file because of the demands of the campaign. The Center for Public Integrity claims that "Sanders expertly exploited a system that effectively allowed him to delay, delay, delay—all while he chided Clinton receipt of six-figure paydays for delivering closed-door speeches to officials at investment bank Goldman Sachs and other powerful special interests."

But Sanders supporters argue that Clinton and Trump have been far more opaque with their finances.

People think the senator is being smeared.

He's no longer running for president. He's not legally required to file anymore.

But his detractors think it looks fishy. He did raise tens of millions during the campaign, and kept fundraising long after it was clear he could not win the nomination.
