Bernie paid his family out of campaign funds, Hillary did not.

Last edited Sat Mar 5, 2016, 09:53 AM - Edit history (1)

If you look at the thread that claims that Hillary paid herself 250k, you notice something odd...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=1410802

1) The claim has been completely debunked, by Skinner, the site owner himself, who kindly took the time to explain FEC regulations and campaign accounting.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=1411154

2) Using the same source as the OP of that thread, apparently Sanders paid his wife and daughter sums of money from campaign funds.

http://freebeacon.com/politics/sanders-and-wife-steered-campaign-nonprofit-money-to-family-and-friends/

That same source, The Free Beacon, also details how Jane Sanders, when she ran Burlington College, paid their daughter over 500k for a woodworking major...a major that was ended after she resigned.


It also led me to links that detail a 3.65 million dollar loan that Jane Sanders took out with the Diocese of Burlington....and a land deal that ended up with a local developer getting a 20 million dollar piece of property for 6 million---
http://vtdigger.org/2015/12/23/catholic-church-nailed-in-loan-settlement-with-burlington-college/

And that story led me to the interesting story of how a Teacher of the Year at Burlington College was fired, provoking student protests..
http://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/burlington-college-students-press-for-changes-after-profs-dismissal/Content?oid=2135730

Interestingly enough, Burlington College had no tenure, and no grievance policy for professors, according to that article.

And that story led me to another one detailing the Board's removal of Sanders from Burlington, mid semester, and details of what it was like to work for Jane Sanders.
http://vtdigger.org/2011/09/27/jane-sanders-resigns-presidency-of-burlington-college-reaches-settlement/

And another one, detailing the loans Jane Sanders made with People's and the Catholic Church..
http://vtdigger.org/2015/09/13/jane-sanders-overstated-donation-amounts-in-loan-application-for-burlington-college/

Interesting news. All flowing from one source.

11. I think Skinner's post about the OP, and the recs it got, says it all....

 



There was a time when people on this website used to treat right-wing rags like the Washington Free Beacon with the contempt they deserve. These days, people will gladly post right-wing garbage as long as it trashes the primary candidate they dislike. It happens all the time.

I'm watching this thread climb to the top of the Greatest Page, and frankly I'm finding it to be both hilarious and sad. Each new recommendation is a mark of shame on this website. It is a massive fail.

On Sat Mar 5, 2016, 08:27 AM an alert was sent on the following post:

Bernie is paid his family out of campaign funds, Hillary did not.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511416753

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Linking to a right wing rag like Free Beacon is not okay no matter which side does it, using it to attack Sen Sanders' wife is completely over-the-top. This is Democratic Underground, we shouldn't be helping the opposition.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sat Mar 5, 2016, 08:38 AM, and the Jury voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This author was only linking to a "right wing rag like the Free Beacon" to balance the argument of a Bernie supporter who committed the initial sin of linking an attack on Hillary from that very same "right wing rag" in an effort to illustrate that we should ALL stand against said "right wing rag like the Free Beacon".
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: derp.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

21. The difference that you fail to see in your eager effort

to counter the fact that Hillary is involved in establishment ties is this...

None of this involves Sanders or his wife colluding with special interests, lobbyists, war criminals, smear jockeys or other deplorable characters. Thus, it doesn't affect how Bernie would ever run his White House.

None of these actions mentioned in the op correlate with the idea that he's beholden to anyone else.

So while the thread posted by someone about Hillary may not be true, all of these findings of yours are irrelevant to how Bernie would run things as president.

It's not just the way the big money is handled by campaigns that should concern anyone, its where it comes from and why.

but I'm sure you're patting yourself on the back for all this effort to smear Jane and Bernie. You know it makes sense for Bernie to pay his family in the campaign? They do officially work for his campaign sooo... yeah.

anyways, this mud won't stick.

22. Bernie pays his interns, Hillary does not


https://hillaryforamerica.applytojob.com/apply/BX8xZl/Internship

Is the internship paid?
No, this is an unpaid internship. Interns will obtain an educational and professional experience in connection with their education or pursuit of a degree.


http://time.com/money/4215463/bernie-sanders-campaign-paid-internships/

Guess Which Presidential Candidate Is Actually Paying Interns

Snip: Except one campaign.

Greer and Grenell—using a paid intern, they carefully point out—reached out to all the campaigns and inquired about the employment and payment of interns. Only Bernie Sanders’ campaign said that it paid interns, to the tune of $10.10 per hour.

Though this is not the $15 dollar minimum wage Sanders wants, it stands out starkly to the other candidates intern pay of … $0. Ten bucks an hour is, as any math-lover will tell you, infinity times more than the others.

Anyway, nothing Jane or Bernie did or does could get me to support a candidate who is for war and fracking and increased H-1B visas, and the Third Way of doing things, so there's that.

That kind of thing - rules, regulations, policies - don't matter to 'progressives.' Often, they've never heard of things like the FEC. On a broader scale, they're unaware of things like delegate counts, math, etc.

52. BTW Hillary's family gets

For Clintons, a Hedge Fund in the Family
By MATTHEW GOLDSTEIN and STEVE EDERMARCH 22, 2015

Since marrying Chelsea Clinton five years ago, Marc Mezvinsky, a money manager, appears to have settled into his life as Bill and Hillary Clinton’s son-in-law. He has regularly appeared at charitable events, once introducing the former president at the Clinton Foundation’s celebrity poker tournament by dryly saying, “You may have heard of my father-in-law.” And at the recent N.B.A. All-Star Game, Mr. Mezvinsky took a seat next to Mr. Clinton and his partner in charitable endeavors, Dikembe Mutombo, the former basketball star.

Beyond the glamour, being part of the Clinton family has provided Mr. Mezvinsky with another perk: access to wealthy investors with ties to the Clintons.

When Mr. Mezvinsky and his partners began raising money in 2011 for a new hedge fund firm, Eaglevale Partners, a number of investors in the firm were longtime supporters of the Clintons, according to interviews and financial documents reviewed by The New York Times. Tens of millions of dollars raised by Eaglevale can be attributed to investors with some relationship or link to the Clintons.

Maybe she didn't pay herself. But, she and Bill are worth 125 million and her daughter is a millionaire, we won't worry about her paying her family for their services.

60. Yes.... all from one source.

 

A person with some small amount of introspection, or I might suggest, shame, might take the fact that this is from one person with an axe to grind under consideration.
