Bernie Sanders Redistributes Wealth to His Family and Cronies

Sanders and Wife Steered Campaign, Nonprofit Money to Family and Friends
Public records show pattern of payments to Democratic presidential candidate’s inner circle

Bernie Sanders and his wife have on numerous occasions steered money from organizations under their control to friends and family members, public records show.

The payments benefitted the wife of the Democratic presidential candidate, his stepdaughter, and the son of a former colleague in city government whom Sanders has described as a close friend.

Sanders, a self-described socialist, is now running for the presidency on an anti-corruption platform, decrying public officials’ attempts to use their positions for personal financial gain.

Following 16 years as a member of the House, Sanders was elected to the Senate in 2006. His political campaigns were an early vehicle for payments to his family members.

He's a piker by Clinton standards.
