Millionaire Marxist Bernie Sanders and His Wife’s Golden Parachute

Bernie Sanders presents himself as a humble public servant who doesn’t care about money. But these days, few go into Big Government unaware that it is now the easiest path to extravagant riches. Why create wealth when you can steal it from others on behalf of the “underprivileged,” meanwhile helping yourself to a healthy cut of the booty? The Sanders family does seem to like money:

James O’Brien, a political consultant and former publisher of Campaigns & Elections magazine, says the career politician, who has been a mayor, member of Congress and U.S. senator, has achieved the financial status of a millionaire.

O’Brien has analyzed the financial status of Sanders and his wife, including their financial disclosure report, and has concluded they have a net worth in the range of $1.2 to $1.5 million, not the $700,000 or less that is usually reported by the media. …

O’Brien says that Sanders’ financial disclosure forms are incomplete. “For someone who doesn’t care about money, he goes a long way to cover up his true net worth,” he says. “Bernie does not disclose the value of real estate holdings. He can. He is not required to, but he could if he chose. It is known that he and/or his wife own at least two homes—one with rental income in Vermont and one near Capitol Hill where the median home value is $722,000.”

Not all of the gravy was acquired through conventional “public servant” means. Federal authorities have been requested to investigate his wife Jane O’Meara Sanders, the recipient of a lucrative “golden parachute” from Burlington College, for bank fraud. She was given a $200,000 severance package after resigning under pressure.

In a story headlined, “Bernie Sanders’ Wife May Have Defrauded State Agency, Bank,” reporters Blake Neff and Peter Fricke of the conservative Daily Caller News Foundation reported the essential facts of the case, noting that she nearly bankrupted Burlington College when she took on $10 million in debt to finance the purchase of a new, far more expansive campus. “The move backfired massively, leading to Sanders’ departure from the college and the near-collapse of the institution,” Neff and Fricke report.

By any standard of fair and objective news reporting, a candidate who promises “free college” to America’s young people should be asked to address the issue of his wife’s financial shenanigans almost bankrupting an institution of higher learning. But it hasn’t been raised in the debates.

No matter. Colleges can’t print their own money like the federal government can. That’s why Sanders can offer free everything to everyone.

After bankrupting the entire country, he too would float comfortably away beneath a golden parachute, should the country be foolish enough to elect him.

There’s more:

The Washington Free Beacon has reported that Senator Sanders used campaign money to benefit members of his family, and that Jane Sanders directed six-figure sums from Burlington College to her daughter and the son of a family friend.

But the important thing to his supporters is that Sanders will stick it good to the rich.

    Where the hell did the BS term Public Servant come into the lexicon? Most of them suck off the taxpayers tit, receive great benefits, perks and salaries above the national average.

    When(If) Comrade Obama voluntarily leaves office, he will have driven America into debt to the tune of $21T. Should another Marxist take office, that debt ridden death spiral will continue unabated, they have said so. At $24T in debt, America becomes Greece, full economic collapse and an inability to repay that debt will turn us into a true third world country which is what the Progressives want so they can seize total control of everything.

    There is no escape from this, you cannot wish it away, ignore it and hope it goes away by magic or hope and change it into something else. The money is gone, that cannot be undone and despite the Trump claims, there is no easy fix for the damage that has already been done.

    Sanders is no different than any other totalitarian with his do as I say, not as I do mentality.

    Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders , former head of Burlington College, was THROWN OUT AS PRESIDENT after it became clear to the board that her irresponsible, reckless, incompetent actions were driving the college to bankruptcy and ruin.

    One way or another, the lunatic-left extremists will DESTROY the American education system, although at this point there isn’t really much left of it.

    Sounds like the commie elite the world over since 1917. They got theirs-and they want yours too because what they got is NEVER enough for them.

    The nepotism and the wife’s incompetence are excellent issues.

    The $1.5 million net worth after a lifetime in politics you’d be better off not mentioning, especially given the wife’s career and income. That’s chump change, really, and entirely possible to acquire during a completely honest career.

    Here’s what I’m hearing from my young liberal friends: That Sanders will clean out the corruption in DC. How to counter that? The nepotism is a great start. Then, the fact that government IS corruption, and that every increase in size and scope of government increases the opportunities for graft, and Sanders will MASSIVELY increase government and, therefore, corruption.

    Not that I’d ever vote for either one, but you would think Hillary would be bludgeoning him with this stuff. She’s about take a shellacking in NH, maybe after that she will hit him with these allegations.

    Of course, then her own misdeeds would become fair game and her list is far longer than his.

    Saw an article yesterday claiming that Hillary’s minions were finally about to do a full Clinton on Sanders. Hitting him with every filthy trick they can come up with.

    Hoping NH is an aberration on the D’s side. Polls I’ve seen in other states have Hillary up by huge margins.

    Far prefer to run against her – worst candidate I’ve ever seen either Party put forward.
