!!!! Story here !!!


The Federal Election Commission (FEC) fined Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign $14,500 for accepting illegal in-kind foreign contributions from the Australian Labor Party (ALP) during the 2016 elections.

The ruling stems from a February 2016, conservative activist group Project Veritas video showing Australian nationals working for the Sanders campaign on the dime of the Australian taxpayer funded ALP.


What? Who did you think this was going to be about?

If it's in all caps, it must be true.



If you think that it isn’t true simply post a link! Or, don’t make baseless accusations.

“In order to avoid a long and expensive fight with the FEC over the technical status of these young people, the campaign agreed to pay the FEC a small settlement but did not agree that it broke any rules,” the Sanders spokesperson added.


What the eff?

He bought his way out of it?

A true politician!

So after millions of dollars spent by the Special Council and over a year of looking for collusion the FEC finds the first of the true collusion. Sad and pathetic Special Council.

$14,500? Meh.

If it had been a republican probably would have been substantially more, and life in prison without parole for everyone involved.

The same exact thing happened in the 2008 financial crisis with ratings agencies and banks - not 1 person goes to jail, the banks get fined hundreds of millions of dollars (absolutely nothing to them), and their plea agreements state that nobody has to admit any wrongdoing... all while the executives gave themselves tens of millions or sometimes well over $100 million in bonuses.

Funny, Bernie Sanders is supposed to be the guy that is calling out activities like this, a "man for the common man", and look what he does?

While volunteering with the Sanders campaign, the Australians engaged in political activities “including encouraging voter attendance at campaign events, recruiting volunteers, canvassing with volunteers, and planning events,” according to the FEC.


Replace Sanders with CLinton.

Replace Australians with Illegal immigrants.

Replace them both with Steele and Fusion GPS.

Add the DNC and you nail three birds with the same stone as what they got Sanders for.

Politicians are corrupt?!? Say it isn't so! At this point, anybody that believes that we have a system that functions for the people needs to check themselves into the nearest mental health center so that they can be fed Eris-knows how many psychoactive drugs in a cocktail designed to chemically lobotomize them. I jest. Kinda. Sorta. No, I'm serious. What part of "broken" do people not get? "Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice... won't get fooled again." Who said that, I forget /sarc.

WASHINGTON (WCAX) Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign will pay a $14,500 fine over an alleged wrongful in-kind campaign contribution during his 2016 run for president.

The agreement with the Federal Elections Commission stems from a group of Australian volunteers who helped the campaign and were paid a total of $24,422 in flights and other expenses by the Australian Labor Party.

Sanders campaign officials have said they did not believe at the time that the money the volunteers received would disqualify them from volunteering. But the FEC classified the transaction as a prohibited in-kind foreign national contribution, a violation of federal rules.

As part of the agreement, the Sanders campaign did not admit fault. "It would have been far more expensive to fight it than to just deal," Sanders campaign aide Jeff Weaver told VTDigger.ld have been far more expensive to fight it than to just deal," Sanders campaign aide Jeff Weaver told VTDigger.


So Bernie was fined because he accepted volunteer work from people whose flights and other accommodations were paid for by the AU political party.

My god, Bernie is now more corrupt than Trump!

So when are we going to DEMAND sanctions against Australia???? War???? roflmao Screw being pissed at Trump for calling other countries "snip holes". No longer can we as Americans shake our heads at countries we deem to be "Banana Republics" when we allow our own stupidity and ignorance to allow our own government to turn OUR country into one?
