Peter Schweizer: Bernie Sanders rails about common good but public service has made him (and his family) rich
hen Bernie was first elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont, he appointed his then-girlfriend, Jane Driscoll, to head his administration’s Youth Office. Though the position was originally unpaid, Bernie eventually put Jane on the payroll over objections of the city council. The job was never advertised so that others could apply. A local paper noted that Sanders never bothered to provide evidence as to Jane’s “qualifications” for the position.
The appointment would remain a source of controversy for Sanders. After Bernie and Jane got married in 1988, his new wife received a big pay increase. As one local newspaper reported, “Political sparks flew at Burlington’s annual city meeting Monday night as Democratic aldermen raised a series of questions concerning a hefty pay raise for Mayor Bernie Sanders’ new wife and whether she should continue to hold her job as director of the Mayor’s Youth Office.”

In Washington, Jane became one of her husband’s top aides, serving at various times as his chief of staff, press secretary and political analyst. After a decade in Congress, Jane and family went about setting up a company that operated under three different names to provide income tied to Bernie’s political career.

On Sept. 27, 2000, the family formed Sanders & Driscoll LLC, a for-profit consulting company run by Jane, her daughter Carina, and son David. The business also operated under two trade names: Leadership Strategies and Progressive Media Strategies

The fact that this entity and its aliases were formed just weeks before the 2000 election is significant. The Sanderses ran these out of their home on Killarney Drive in Burlington. These entities served as financial conduits to run cash to the Sanders family.

It is impossible to know precisely how much because Sanders' financial disclosure forms, which he is required to release as a member of Congress, only listed “more than $1,000” as the amount of income they earned from these consulting firms. We do know that some of Bernie’s campaign dollars flowed through the LLCs. While running for House reelection in the early 2000s, critics claimed, “Sanders doled out more than $150,000 to his wife and stepdaughter for campaign-related work between 2000 and 2004.”
Some of the campaign money flowing to the family from Bernie’s campaign came as Jane served as a “media buyer” for his reelection. Media buying is a murky but potentially highly lucrative stream of income for those involved in political campaigns. Modern American political campaigns spend large sums of money on television and other forms of media. A media buyer handles the purchase of airtime and secures the contracts with media outlets.

Typically, a media buyer receives a commission of about 15 percent of the cost for a media campaign. So if a campaign were to spend, say, $1,000,000 on television ads, the media buyer would pocket a $150,000 commission. But here’s the kicker: the media buyer commission is not actually disclosed anywhere. Filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) only require disclosure of the bulk amount of the media buy. In this example, the FEC report will only disclose the $1,000,000 media buy. And as for the fact that Jane Sanders is the spouse of a politician, she is only required to disclose that she earns “more than $1,000” from her businesses.

What is interesting about the Sanders family foray into media buying, in particular, is that Jane Sanders had no apparent background in media buying. But in her husband’s 2006 campaign, she worked with two media buyers named Barbara Abar Bougie and Shelli Hutton-Hartig – two names that would become significant when Bernie’s political ambitions went national.

Bernie Sanders’s insurgent 2016 presidential campaign brought in a huge sum of money. A large chunk of it — nearly $83 million — flowed to a mysterious limited liability company with no website, no phone number, and no office space. Indeed, the LLC was registered to a private home on a cul-de-sac in suburban Virginia.

The mysterious company is called Old Towne Media LLC. Two names connected to the company are Barbara Abar Bougie and Shelli Hutton-Hartig, Jane’s associates from the 2006 campaign.

The Sanders campaign purchased a whopping $82.77 million in political ads through Old Towne Media, which could have earned the company a media fee of more than $12 million, based on the industry standard for ad-buy commissions. Was Jane Sanders somehow involved in this financial arrangement? FEC disclosures make it easy to hide where media buying fees actually go. Jane listed her income from her professional work at the time as simply “more than $1,000.”

When a highly respected Vermont reporter named Jasper Craven, working for the nonprofit VTDigger.com, asked Jane about Old Towne Media during a phone interview, she replied, “I have no idea what Old Towne Media is.” Then she hung up the phone.



Not surprised. This is what socialists are known for. That and mass murder.
What a lying POS
Thanks for the info.

As soon as the govt got involved, prices started to rise.
Cost is the biggest problem.
I have explained this to you before and posted graphs. Im not doing it again.

Anyone who has dealt with an elderly persons death should be the ones voting on whether to extend Medicare.
My father died 3 years ago of brain cancer.
They put my mother through hell, and my dad on more than one occasion laying in the emergency room awaiting approval for treatment because he was in hospice.
On Christmas Eve 2016, we spent 2 hours and 45 minutes at the Emergency room waiting on someone from hospice to call in an approve giving my father an IV to treat dehydration because medicare won't cover it if you are in hospice, but they also won't cover a MYRIAD of care unless you ARE in hospice.
So in the last month of his life it was a constant on and off hospice to get basic care.
You don't think death panels exist?? The fuck they don't.
We have lots or people now who are uninsured and rarely go to the doctor because of it. Some of these people will find out too late they have an illness that will kill them. Our system is not good.
It goes well beyond the "system".
No doubt the system needs work.... no doubt. But at the same time, America could literally solve ALL of it's health coverage issues by simply stopping eating shit. Did you know that just under 70% of ALL healthcare costs are at LEAST in part due to a poor diet?? America diet of eating high sugar/high sodium/high saturated fat diet is literally killing us. And...literally bankrupting our heath system.
And our policy is controlled by lobbying. The companies selling that garbage lobby a lot .
No doubt.
You remember when MIchelle Obama first became first lady and decided to take on child obesity? (Despite being a board member of a snack foods company...go figure) She made several statements and spoke about giving kids sugary foods... but then the sugar lobbies weighed in - and just like that - she never, not once uttered the word sugar for the next 8 years.
Our food supply is yet another scam. Our bloated criminal government doesn’t protect us from bad food. They protect the big food companies. It’s a racket the mafia can only dream of, but somehow Americans are clueless.
They are clueless because they are drunk on sugar/salt/fatty foods.
I happen to be a fucking good cook. Just sayin. I have catered several events, and a few private gatherings as well.
Most middle/lower class people don't like real food. It's a fact. Americans are so use to eating fatty, salt laden sugar bombs they don't like REAL food!!
For instance, we I make spaghetti, I make a basic red sauce with Roma Tomatoes, garlic, tomato paste to thicken, thyme, onions, carrots and fresh basil at the end. It taste fresh, and real. A lot of people don't really like it... know why... because they are use to bottled spaghetti sauces....no how much sugar is in a serving of that shit? - 4 teaspoons!!!!!! It's like tomato based ice cream sauce.
Americans have, last I knew, the 3rd worst diet in the modern world. And we wonder why our healthcare costs are high.

I think you are right, but eating good in this country is expensive. As long as cheap unhealthy options are readily available our health will suffer.

Crazy Bernie has done some of the most breathtakingly horrible stuff imaginable.

It was only 9 years ago that he posted an editorial on his website — it’s still there — labeling Venezuela as 1 of the South American countries where “the American dream is more apt to be realized” than in America.

And he may be our next president.

And BTW - notice how other countries UHC systems are becoming financially insolvent?
Because they have picked up the "American diet" Particularly - Britain, Australia and Mexico. They now have joined America as being the only countries where a significant portion of the population is both obese and malnourished at the same time.
Now that is fucked. And THAT is expensive when they all get sick

But that is not right.
People also don't know how to eat well...and cheap.
I really-really-really want to write a cook book that shows how to eat good, healthy food without breaking the bank.
But it will never sell. The same lousy life choices people make - lazy/convenience over quality/ and unwilling to put effort into pretty much anything... are going to get nothing from a book like that.

actually the costs got totally out of control when the government had nothing to do with it as far as regulation went. I guess you're blaming insurance. But the old GOP scam system at 18% of GDP and people getting thrown off when they got sick was a disgrace. Obamacare if actually implemented totally is at least civilization. The problem is the out-of-control cost that the GOP loves.

We certainly need a lot of garbage processed foods and sugar. Obviously the Democrats try and fight that with ingredients posted calories posted etcetera etc and the GOP loves to protect the corporations. But keep voting for the Republicans oh dear

Of FFS - shut the hell up.
Agri-Business, with it's enormous subsidies and favored regulatory legislation is NOT Republicans.
They both serve their corporate masters.
Grow up and wake up.

Of course both parties are capitalists but the GOP is the champion of lobbyists and corporate interests and the rich obviously. If you don't know that you don't know anything.every time the GOP gets 8 years in control they have another deregulation bubble and bust, all they care about is cutting taxes on the rich and giant corporations and screwing everyone else. Wake up and smell the coffee. Only their ridiculous garbage propaganda machine makes this mess possible. GOP voters are the most misinformed voters in the modern world by far. They have their own imaginary planet. Where Trump's economy is wonderful and Obama's economy was horrible although they are the same LOL and the rich pay too much in taxes LOL

Americans have, last I knew, the 3rd worst diet in the modern world. And we wonder why our healthcare costs are high.
I think you are right, but eating good in this country is expensive. As long as cheap unhealthy options are readily available our health will suffer.

But that is not right.
People also don't know how to eat well...and cheap.
I really-really-really want to write a cook book that shows how to eat good, healthy food without breaking the bank.
But it will never sell. The same lousy life choices people make - lazy/convenience over quality/ and unwilling to put effort into pretty much anything... are going to get nothing from a book like that.
We certainly need a lot of garbage processed foods and sugar. Obviously the Democrats try and fight that with ingredients posted calories posted etcetera etc and the GOP loves to protect the corporations. But keep voting for the Republicans oh dear
LOL. Ds are no different from Rs. Both are owned and controlled by corporate interests and the billionaires. Thinking otherwise makes one a fool.

Damn straight... I can only hope maybe, just maybe someday Americans will wake up and realize it...

Our food supply is yet another scam. Our bloated criminal government doesn’t protect us from bad food. They protect the big food companies. It’s a racket the mafia can only dream of, but somehow Americans are clueless.
They are clueless because they are drunk on sugar/salt/fatty foods.
I happen to be a fucking good cook. Just sayin. I have catered several events, and a few private gatherings as well.
Most middle/lower class people don't like real food. It's a fact. Americans are so use to eating fatty, salt laden sugar bombs they don't like REAL food!!
For instance, we I make spaghetti, I make a basic red sauce with Roma Tomatoes, garlic, tomato paste to thicken, thyme, onions, carrots and fresh basil at the end. It taste fresh, and real.

One is for healthcare and living wage and taxing the rich and the other one isn't. You have gone way overboard.
