Bernie and Jane Sanders College corruption? Funneled daughter $500,000


Earlier I posted  Will Trump end up causing the downfall of Bernie and Jane Sanders?

The tasty part is it will be the Donald who may play an important part in the outcome. He has yet to appoint the U.S. Attorney for Vermont who will be deciding how to proceed.

Matrix, a stalwart reader sent this additional gem to add to this shiny object. Not only does it look like Bernie and Jane were involved in a fraudulent land deal, the daughter was raking in the dough as well, not to the benefit of Burlington College:

How did Jane Sanders funnel more than 500k to her daughter’s for-profit woodworking business during her tenure as President of Burlington College and get away with it?

What hasn’t been discussed in all the noise about Burlington College’s closure is how Jane Sanders (supported by the same Board of Trustees who approved the land sale) openly funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from Burlington College’s operating funds to VT Woodworking School — a for-profit business started by her daughter Carina Driscoll in 2007.

Despite scattered reporting on this story, Jane Sanders has never been asked to explain why Burlington College suddenly needed to start a woodworking program in 2009 – the very same year the VT Woodworking School expanded to its current site in Fairfax, VT taking on considerable expense of a new building and needing to find students to fill its cavernous 15,000 square-foot space. Nor has anyone asked if the College did what would normally be required in this process by creating a Request For Proposal (RFP) to solicit bids in order to guarantee that the process was fair and open to other entities competing for this business.

This appears not to be the case given that the College was also funding another program at the same time (as reported in the College’s tax returns) that directly benefited the children of Jonathan Leopold, a board member.

According to the College’s now defunct website, Carina Driscoll was listed as Director of the Woodworking Program at Burlington College on the Faculty and Staff Directory in 2016. It is unclear how the College was able to hire her on staff while she remained the owner of VT Woodworking — directly benefitting from the College’s funding of her for-profit business.  Read more

    […] Does Bernie really believe we will drink his Kool-Aid? After doing two posts which clearly show a nasty business he blames Trump now? The College was in better shape at the time she left? And why did she leave? She was fired and took $200K on the way out the door. No, Bernie, when you run as a candidate, people look into your affairs. Your not off the hook either. Turn about is a tough. You are quick to go after Trump. In case you missed my posts..a refresher.Bernie and Jane Sanders College corruption? Funneled daughter $500,000 […]

    And yet he still has the audacity to go out there day after day and claim the Republicans are evil after what his family has done. Of course the MSM is providing cover for him but how long is he going to be able to hide. Sooner or later he will end up in court and the MSM will not be able to ignore it. Hadn’t heard about their daughter, good find!

    Glad you found the topic interesting Bunker! What will the MSM do with this? Nothing…until they have to. At least this one isn’t as hard to explain as say Whitewater, Filegate, Travelgate, Pardongate, Bosnia sniperfile, emailgate, and of course all that petermc3 has noted. If they do come out with it, Fauxahontas should start worrying. But the way things are going, she won’t be pulling the worry beads out any too soon. The Dems will leave Sanders in a hot minute when a trial is in the offing. They already colluded to make sure he’d never win the nomination. But Fauxy Warren is their last big hope. Get out the popcorn. This is going to be fun to watch.

      A few of the MSM stations have picked it up… I think they would just as soon be rid of Sanders as well. The Dems have paid a price with the reveal that the whole primary was a setup. Yep, got the popcorn…at the ready.

    This is great, if they are found guilty the appropriate sentence would be to send them back to Moscow for a life-long Honeymoon. Thanks, J.C.

    I fear this sort of behavior (Clinton, Warren, Sanders) will continue until we are able to execute one or two of them–for the good of the nation, of course.

    Too bad the daughter didn’t open a tailoring school so her old man could throw away his Moe Ginsberg suit for a nice sharkskin Nehru jacket, parachute pants and sandals with no socks. With that ensemble working for him he could easily have taken the nomination from pant suit lady!

        C’mon Bunker. Its not like they gave away $500,000,000 to a fake solar energy company or the commie couple is a criminal global initiative charity extorting hundreds of millions from foreign countries and corporations for political favors and considerations. So the old transplanted Brooklynite socialist wife gets a $200,000 golden parachute (theres that word again) after diverting (also known as stealing) $500,000 and shuttering a once viable institution of higher learning resulting from a land deal scam. So what, they’re democrat socialist communist marxist pigs; its what they do-enriching themselves, feeding from the public trough while making a career of knocking capitalism.
