Who knew? Bernie and Jane Sanders are millionaires!

Sanders with his wife Jane O'Meara in Des Moines, Iowa (Wiki)
Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane have some explaining to do. Bernie, as you know, is the candidate in the Democratic primary who rails against Wall Street, big banks, and the one percent. You recall Bernie, right? He's the angry guy with his fist raised attempting to shame his opponent Hillary Clinton for her supposed ties to Wall Street - she got paid for a couple of speeches...

Who knew that Bernie and his wife Jane are millionaires, or that Jane left her position as president of Burlington College under questionable circumstances and has been accused of federal bank fraud. Accuracy in Academia details the financial scandals following Bernie and Jane:

Editor’s Note: Maybe some of Bernie Sanders youngest supporters should know how close to the one percent he gets.

Responding to one of Anderson Cooper’s softball questions, socialist Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told the CNN Town Hall on Wednesday night that he lives a frugal life and indicated that he doesn’t care about money or status. “I have a small Chevrolet,” he said. “It is one of the smallest Chevys that they make.” He said it was about five years old.
But James O’Brien, a political consultant and former publisher of Campaigns & Elections magazine, says the career politician, who has been a mayor, member of Congress and U.S. senator, has achieved the financial status of a millionaire.
O’Brien has analyzed the financial status of Sanders and his wife, including their financial disclosure report, and has concluded they have a net worth in the range of $1.2 to $1.5 million, not the $700,000 or less that is usually reported by the media.
Rather than “Feel the Bern,” the phrase associated with popular support for the self-declared “democratic socialist,” O’Brien says that Sanders is personally “Feelin’ the Wealth.”
Equally significant, his wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, left her position as president of Burlington College under controversial circumstances and is now being accused of federal bank fraud. She left her position at the college and was given a severance package known as a “golden parachute” that also benefited Senator Sanders’ personal wealth.

  1. He hasn't released his tax returns. What is he hiding? If Hillary hadn't released her returns there would be a scandal.

  2. Bernie's wife Jane does their taxes, and she recently said she couldn't find their returns. No kidding.

  3. DailyPUMA mentioned Jane and her Burlington shenanigans a few times over the past few months. Not sure how a different source reporting it months later has more relevance.

  4. Hi Alessandro, I wasn't aware of your posts about Jane, and it hasn't occurred to me to compare the relevance between your posts and mine. Please explain the point of your comment here at Katalusis as I don't get it.
