It appears Bernie Sanders should really stop worrying about what others are doing with their lives and focus more on what his own spouse is doing.
But that wouldn’t be the socialist way, now would it?
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is investigating Jane Sanders, of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, over her seemingly shady role in the fraudulent acquisition of nearly $7 million in tax-exempt bonds when she was the president of Burlington College.
The Daily Caller reports:
An extremely ambitious expansion and fundraising effort spearheaded by Jane Sanders ended up bankrupting the tiny, private and now-defunct school in Burlington, Vermont. It closed its doors — suddenly and permanently — in 2016.
Emails obtained through an open records request by The Vermont Journalism Trust reveal that FBI agents and the US Attorney’s Office in Vermont have been analyzing Burlington College records for over a year. Also, the feds have subpoenaed at least one former Burlington College employee.
That employee, former Burlington College dean of operations Coralee Holm, told The Vermont Journalism Trust that FBI agents questioned her about the fundraising activities related to the expansion.
Jane Sanders, who was the president of tiny Burlington College from 2004 until 2011, masterminded the expansion plan, which would have more than doubled the enrollment of the school (from about 200 full-time students to over 400). The plan required the college take on $10 million in debt to finance the purchase of an expansive new campus.
The real estate purchase backfired massively, leading to Sanders’s departure from the college and its eventual collapse.
