A couple weeks back, we noted that:
Bernie Sanders’ wife is under FBI investigation for possible fraud after she exaggerated (some would say lied) to get her employer, bankrupt Burlington College, a $10 million bank loan.
The loan was for Jane Sanders’ ill-advised plan to expand the college. Arguably, she bankrupted the college? Also, some say that Senator Sanders may have pressured the bank for the loan, and that some of the $10 million may have gone to cushy jobs for family and friends, or Jane’s $200k severance when she left.
Natch, Bernie has said it’s all a partisan witch hunt, how dare they go after his wife, it’s so low and vile, yadda yadda. But
- The FBI started the investigation under Obama.
- Judicial Watch has obtained records showing that Jane Sanders, for one, evicts disabled people who get in her way.
[Jane’s land] purchase included a [Roman Catholic] facility that served as a group home for disabled people and, under the terms of the deal, Jane was supposed to negotiate the transfer of the disabled residents before the school took over…
[But] In a lengthy letter to the attorney (Todd Centybear) representing the group home for the disabled Jane indicates that she’s having trouble evicting the 16 residents from their building…She writes: “It is simply not fair to expect the College to continue to carry the burden of the expenses associated with housing both your population and ours until February 2012.” The home for the disabled was being leased from the diocese and Jane was supposed to help relocate the residents, not evict them. The exchange shows, not only Jane’s heartlessness, but also her incompetence as the college president for not ensuring the negotiated transfer of those disabled people before the school took over the property.
If she’s ever exonerated, I’ll try to wrap up loose ends by posting on that.
