The Bernie Bribe for Endorsing Hillary?
by Stephen Lendman
Sanders faked progressive politics throughout his deplorable public career – more opportunist than populist since elected Burlington, VT mayor in 1981.
Endorsing war goddess, she-devil racketeer Hillary representing everything he campaigned against is proof positive – beyond a shadow of a doubt, as they say.
Here’s more suggesting his dark side. Seven Days calls itself “Vermont’s Independent Voice. On August 8, it headlined “Bernie Sanders Buys a Summer Home in North Hero,” saying:
“(L)ast week (he) plopped down nearly $600,000” for a lakefront property “with 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront.” He has a separate Burlington home and Capitol Hill row house.
“The small Grand Isle County town has been abuzz for the last several days with the news” of his new purchase. Does the phrase “plopped down” used by Seven Days mean Sanders paid cash?
Did he use personal savings, campaign funds or maybe ill-gotten DNC remuneration for services rendered? Seven Days didn’t explain.
The Sanders saga isn’t pretty. His record as Burlington mayor, as well as congressional House and Senate member shows he supports dirty business as usual like virtually the entire political class in Washington – saying one thing, doing another consistently, betraying constituents.
Did he use ill-gotten gains to buy a luxury summer home? No evidence so far proves it, but coming after endorsing Hillary last month raises suspicions.
He’s a first-class scoundrel, a Judas. Whether his opulent self-indulgence provides more evidence is for others to determine.
