Vice President Kamala Harris Earned $450,000 in Book Royalties

Vice President Harris earned nearly half a million dollars in book royalties during her first year in office, ethics disclosure forms show.

Harris reported $325,000 in royalty income from her 2019 book “The Truths We Hold” and another $130,000 for her children’s book “Superheroes Are Everywhere,” Bloomberg reported Friday.

The money far exceeded President Biden’s, who reported between $15,001 and $50,000 in royalties for “Promise Me, Dad,” — a 2018 heartfelt memoir about his late son Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer in 2015.

However, neither Harris nor Biden want money. The president reported $700,000 and $1.5 million in cash, with between $195,000 and $650,000 in investment funds.

Harris had between $750,000 and $1.5 million in the bank, between $250,000 and $500,000 in a joint account with her husband Doug Emhoff. In addition, Harris had between $775,000 and $1.85 million in pension funds.
