VIA| Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane apparently moved some cash from his campaign and nonprofit organization to some of his close family members and friends.
So I guess it’s true after all.
Socialism really is, at its core, completely and totally immoral.
The payments benefitted the wife of the Democratic presidential candidate, his stepdaughter, and the son of a former colleague in city government whom Sanders has described as a close friend.
Sanders, a self-described socialist, is now running for the presidency on an anti-corruption platform, decrying public officials’ attempts to use their positions for personal financial gain.
Following 16 years as a member of the House, Sanders was elected to the Senate in 2006. His political campaigns were an early vehicle for payments to his family members.
According to Jane O’Meara Sanders, the senator’s wife, Sanders’ House campaigns paid her more than $90,000 for consulting and ad placement services from 2002 to 2004. She pocketed about $30,000 of that money.
Her daughter Carina Driscoll, Sanders’ stepdaughter, also drew a salary from the campaign. She was paid more than $65,000 between 2000 and 2004, according to her mother.
After working for the campaign, the senator’s wife would come under scrutiny for expenditures at Burlington College, where she was hired as president in 2004. While she led the school, it paid six-figure sums to her daughter and the son of a family friend.
The plot thickens from there as it seems the son of this family friend purchased a resort, which then suddenly began getting rather large checks from Burlington College for “all-inclusive” stays for students studying abroad.
While the GOP might be chock full of candidates, at least we have a variety of different folk to choose from.
All the Democrats have to pick from are corrupt politicians and crooks.
Sanders and Hillary Clinton are basically two sides of the same coin, so anyone who was voting for the wacky socialist to avoid pulling the lever for Hillary just had a harsh dose of reality dropped on them.
This is just further proof Sanders has no place anywhere near the Oval Office.
