Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and his wife, Jane, have hired lawyers as the FBI investigates whether the couple committed bank fraud. The FBI has been looking into whether Jane Sanders committed bank fraud in order to get approved for loans for the defunct Burlington College, and whether the senator himself was involved. They hired Rich Cassidy of Burlington and Larry Robbins of Washington, D.C., Jeff Weaver, the leader of Sanders’ political group, told Politico Magazine. Sanders, a progressive hero who gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money in last year’s Democratic presidential primary, has called the allegations “nonsense.” Jane Sanders was the president of the college.
This all reminds me of when John Edwards ran for president while carrying on an affair that produced a love child. Edwards put his own self-interest ahead of the good of the Democratic Party. Here, you seem to have a case where Bernie and Jane have decided to cash in on his popularity and rake in the bucks. Everything she's been doing has been shady as hell and, remember, she's the reason why they haven't released their joint tax returns. I would hate to think of all of those sad Bernie Bros out there coming to the realization that their hero is less than perfect.
