It appears that Jim Hoft isn't any smarter when he's "exposing progressives" than when he's exposing himself over at Gateway Pundit. This is the equivalent of accusing a candidate of masticating in public and having a severe addiction to aldohexose.

As long as they can walk at the same time.

Hillary is just sending a reminder how easy it is to knock this pretender out of the mix, lol.

OK, now all the usual suspects have weighed in to say, "Nothing to see here." What did you say about it when Palin did it?

Awww xuenchen, is this the best you got? You're slipping dude.

This is non-issue. GO BERNIE!


I was really hoping the Sanders supporters would come up with better rebuttals.

Like maybe the money paid to his family was actually at a discount.

I bet P.R. firms would want 5x the money.

Sanders supporters need to keep out of the main stream crap traps.

Yes, Go Bernie !!

That was covered in the first page. She spent $150k on her wardrobe. Apples and oranges.

You can't honestly consider the two remotely similar.

Looks like Bernie Sanders has used campaign money to pay family members (his Wife and step-Daughter).

Although this apparently happened some years ago, it seems to be verified by Federal Election Commission records.

Makes people wonder if this is, or will be happening in the current Presidential Campaign?

Bernie needs to be very careful what he says and what he does as well as come up with answers to past performance.

Will this harm him or help him?


Exclusive: Bernie Sanders Used Campaign Donations to Pay Family Members Over $150,000


Since 2000, Sanders has used campaign donations to pay his wife and stepdaughter more than $150,000, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission.

His wife Jane O’Meara Sanders received $91,020 for “consultation” and to negotiate the purchase of television and radio ads. Approximately $61,000 of that was “pass through” money used to pay for the ads, O’Meara Sanders told the Bennington Banner. She kept about $30,000 as pay for her services.

Her daughter Carina Driscoll, Sanders’ stepdaughter, earned $65,002 from the Sanders campaign between 2000 and 2004, records show.



The article cites some other examples and refers to other politicians as well.

Does anyone else get amused by the stories. Only because you know some how some way they are getting tips from the opposite side or from competition in their own party or someone tied into the political area working for someone. There's something oddly refreshing about seeing the political class trying to eat their own

Sounds to me like Bernie got the campaign a real deal with cheap labor.

Fiscal responsibility; I like that in a socialist.

Did you read the whole thread?

Or is this just a shot-gun knee-jerk reaction?

You're acting like I wrote the article.



Go Bernie

Bernie and Hillary are spending the evening before the primaries on a yacht owned by the DNC.

They both have a few drinks and both fall over into the water.

Hil;lary dog-paddles to shore while Bernie calmly walks on top of the waves to shore.


The next day headlines?

"Hillary struggles to save her life and heroically makes it!"

"Bernie can't swim"

So this is suspicious because he... had people working for him? And paid them?! Good lord, get FOX on the phone.

You mean the rebuttals in the thread that you haven't addressed?

I mean if you are going claim they need to be better at least address them and show how they are wrong.

a reply to: TinfoilTP

Um ok?

Seeing as how this is pretty much nothing, not sure how that makes sense.

For what it's worth,

I agree.
