  1. Darwin says:

    Bernie Sanders is now giving his wife Jane 800,000 a month for work on his canpaign and also the same amount to Weaver and Devine being every one is complaining the story was 10 years ago this is current .

    1. Lars says:

      Your post is a flat lie.

  2. Michael says:

    This is such a pathetic attempt to create the illusion of scandal. These are paltry sums of money for working on a campaign. Look into what Hill and Bill and Chelsea are funneling through the clinton foundation. Jane got $30,000 over two years… are you kidding me…. thats a scandal. So stupid!

    1. Mish says:

      What is pathetic is that you will excuse any of fraudulent behaviors no matter what it is. He has 4 months of FEC violations for over $28 million for illegal contributions that he was supposed to have returned within 10 days of receiving the donations. His wife gets paid for the Radioactive waste dumping compact that her husband made with Texas. Now, where in her credentials does she have the experience to be an Alternate commissioner for the TLLRWDC? http://www.tllrwdcc.org/about-the-comission/ That is the issue with Sanders supporters. You will excuse any of his behaviors because it suits you. That is pathetic.

  3. Dan says:

    This attempt at a hit piece backfires pathetically. Your reporter’s inability to come up with any real “corruption” turns out, ironically, to demonstrate the opposite–how very clean the candidate is. Anyone who does his own homework quickly realizes that Sanders has more integrity in a single hair on his head than Hillary has in her entire body. After Roca301’s definitive rebuttal below, nothing more needs to be said. Case closed.

  4. Jim says:

    So, Bernie hired his Step Daughter for $65,000 and Jane $90,000 -this was over ten years ago. This is somehow relevant. Hillary recently hired Chelsea for $900,000, is this equally relevant?

  5. Patrice says:

    What do I think? Answer: Meet the ‘new’ BOSS; SAME as the OLD boss, just wearing the latest in buzzz-speak groupthink labels.

  6. Rozella says:

    YOUR 27$ SANDERS DONATION is being used to benefit the Sander Family who many are on the camp payroll and NOW using close to half of a millions dollars taking a family vacation on a private flight to Rome burning gallons of fuel just hours after attacking Hillary Clinton on climate change

    The total group of 50, flew in a chartered Delta 767 for their trip which seats 211 and 261 people 4,435 miles from New York to Rome uses approximately 16,596 gallons of fuel. At the debate on Thursday Sanders claimed he ‘introduced the most comprehensive climate change legislation’ He also attacked rival Hillary Clinton for her stance on fossil fuels.

  7. Marion says:

    I gave money to Bernie and I’m glad for it. Bernie is an independent congressman, and his family have played a huge roll in his work. You’d have a better story if you showed that he wasn’t paying them for all the work they’re doing.

    Sad attempt at a hit piece on Bernie, but no cigar.

  8. Maggie says:

    Where are the multiple sources to back up that claim? So far, all you have are bogus statements from his daughter and wife that could’ve been fabricated.

  9. Roca301 says:

    So his wife got $90,000 from 2002-2004 and “pocketed” $30,000. Meaning she got 10,000 bucks a year for helping to run the campaign… Stepdaughter got $65000 over the course of 5 years or $13,000 a year for her work… so much huh?
    And lastly a friend’s son was getting money from his dad so obviously that means Bernie is super corrupt too? The son’s friend’s girlfriend’s uncle was probably involved somehow too..

    So this all must mean that Bernie must be rich beyond believe from all the money he took as mayor/representative and now as a senator? Not really. Compared to the average senator net worth Bernie low. His wife probably holds more savings than he does.

    He is by no means as bad as Clinton though… https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/clintons-earn-more-than-25-million-in-speaking-fees-since-january-2014/2015/05/15/52605fbe-fb4d-11e4-9ef4-1bb7ce3b3fb7_story.html

    Quite frankly this article is nothing but a sad lie trying to dig up as much dirt as possible against Bernie. To use this as an example of corruption is simply disingenuous. Read carefully and you can see. You want corruption look at any candidate in the Rep or Dem aside from Bernie and maybe O’malley as a far second place.

    Almost all politicians in DC are bought already. People like Bernie or Jill Stein are the ones that will fight to get the money out of politics. AT this moment Bernie is the one mobilizing millions of people to be active and vote not just for president but for local, state, and federal elections. If you truly want change and not just sit back and be cynical become active and fight to get money out of the system. Then social justice will happen. Bernie is out chance right now to do just that. Don’t let another 8 years of fake change happen.

  10. Richard says:

    He’s one of the tribe. What did you expect?

  11. toosmarttovoteGOP says:

    The Daily Beacon”


    The Onion is more credible.

  12. mesaman says:

    What? A lying, cheating, corrupt democrat? Wow, pick a name than fill in the blank with the corrupt activities they have been exposed doing. They think “Uncle Remus” Rangel is their poster child of what the successful racketeer should be like.

  13. Bob says:

    How many criminals are running for POTUS? and congress and senate. better yet how many are already members?

  14. Diana says:

    omg! What a hypocrite! He’s as bad as Clinton. Do you know what the president of Burlington College makes??? A private college no less. I lived there for awhile. It’s never a good sign when you start putting your immediate family and friends on the payroll. What a hypocrite. If this is true, he’s done.
