We’re just getting reports that, because of the actions of Jane Sanders, the wife of Bernie Sanders and the recent-past president of Burlington College in Vermont, the college is closing its doors on May 27th due to “insurmountable financial problems”. Under Mrs. Sanders’ leadership the college incurred debt for a large real estate purchase that the college could not afford, and after 2 years of being on probation the college was unable to meet its lenders’ financial standards and their accreditation has been lifted.
What great timing! At just the time that Bernie is telling the world about how easy and logical, and yes, even necessary, it is to offer free college education to every citizen (and why not offer free education to everyone, whether a citizen or not?) we find out that his like-minded wife has caused permanent and irreversible damage to a great old Vermont institute of higher learning.
But will this kick-in-the-pants to the Democrat socialist presidential candidate cause him to reconsider his pie-in-the-sky scheme to get votes by offering free stuff to his followers? No. He’ll just make the idiotic argument that the college was just not large enough to absorb the costs of his wife’s ill-considered decisions, and then he’ll say that someone else made the decisions that really caused the damage and caused the school to close, and yada, yada the usual crap.
Mrs. Sanders, the wife of the Socialist Senator running for president, made $150,000 a year as president and got a $200,000 severance package from the college when she left after serving as president for 7 years. When one combines the two Sanders’ incomes one realizes how little they really believe in the Socialism that Bernie preaches. They’re worth a bundle and they plan to keep it!
There are some people in Vermont that suspect fraud on the part of Mrs. Sanders in the land deal that she negotiated as president, which eventually sank the school, so it appears the Sanders couple are going to easily and fully fill the scandalous shoes of Bill and Hillary Clinton as head of the Democrat party. But their deeds will never match up to the Clinton’s White Water scandal, Hillary’s cattle futures scandal, Bill’s disbarment for the blue dress incident and the pairs’ multi-billion dollar, money-laundering and influence-peddling scheme called the Clinton Global Initiative. But at least they’re trying, and that’s what Democrats like to see.
