Bernie Sanders Corrupt daughter ‘considers’ running for office!

 

Bernie Sanders’ Stepdaughter Considers Running For Mayor Of Burlington, Vermont

Reads the headline… No where does the NY Post mention that she was funneled $500,000 as part of the Burlington college ripoff perpetrated by her mother. Another corrupt spawn of a Democrat who defies the laws of gravity with their hubris. Her mother and she should be in jail. Like mother like daughter…….. here is what she says first and then  B-ville plays it again post:

“In my mind it’s time to consider a new direction for Burlington and a new vision and I am exploring whether it’s the right time for that, if there are others who feel the same way and also if it’s the right time for me,” Driscoll said.

Driscoll volunteered for Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign. She also founded the Vermont Woodworking School in Fairfax and is a mother of two, both factors she is considering as she weighs a run.“Mostly in that I am deeply committed to issues of social and economic and racial justice, and that for me, sitting on the sidelines when it feels there’s work to be done, is very challenging,” she said. “And that’s my primary motivation. … I really very much want to jump back into local politics

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

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

Sanders: FBI investigation of his wife and him. ‘It’s Trump’s fault’

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.

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.

Here is a good summary of the issues that I have added.

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:

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

A little reported story is the looming criminal case of Jane Sanders and her hubby’s involvement in possible loan fraud. Did Bernie grease the wheels? Jane mislead the lender as to the amount of pledges given to Burlington College’s purchase of land?

Collects $200,000 as she goes out the door of a bankrupt college

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. Politico gives a kind interpretation of the facts that I have read elsewhere, but this will do for today:

“There’s an implication, and from at least one individual, an explicit argument that when they called for an investigation into Burlington College that you used your influence to secure a loan from People’s United—”

 The senator cut him off.

Politico is reporting that Sen. Bernie Sanders and  his wife Jane Sanders have “lawyered up” as the federal investigation into her role in the collapse of Burlington College continues:

From Politico:

Now, Senator Sanders and his wife are taking the case more seriously. Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ longtime top political adviser who heads Sanders’ political organization, Our Revolution, confirms to Politico Magazine that Bernie and Jane Sanders have lawyered up. The couple has retained Rich Cassidy, a well-connected Burlington attorney and Sanders devotee, and Larry Robbins, the renowned Washington-based defense attorney who has represented I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby and disgraced former Rep. Bill Jefferson, to represent Jane Sanders in the matter.

Now here’s the best part. It seems that President Donald Trump will be instrumental in deciding the Sanders’ fate:

Now, President Donald Trump’s Justice Department is handling an investigation that will proceed at the discretion of a U.S. attorney of Vermont that Trump has yet to appoint.

The facts of the case are complicated. They are steeped in Vermont’s peculiar educational culture and the incestuous financial system in Burlington, Sanders’ hometown and political base, where some Sanders backers worry that with Trump’s Justice Department calling the shots, the facts—intricate as they are—may not determine the outcome.

No wonder Sanders hates Trump so much. Read the entire report here.
