Socialist Bernie Sander’s wife, Jane, is accused of heartlessly trying to evict disabled group home residents when she was the president of a Vermont college – she is now under criminal investigation by the FBI.
Fox News reported:
The home with 16 residents was on property Jane O’Meara Sanders purchased for Burlington College in 2010 as part of an expansion project, the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch claimed Thursday.
Reports this week say Sanders is under FBI investigation in connection with her role in securing financing for the project which didn’t pan out and led to the college’s closure.
Sanders and Sen. Sanders have reportedly hired defense attorneys in connection with the probe. Sen. Sanders called the accusations against his wife “pretty pathetic” and politically motivated.
Judicial Watch says Mrs. Sanders sent a letter to an attorney representing the HowardCenter group home in January 2011, saying she was having trouble evicting the 16 residents.
“It is simply not fair to expect the College to continue to carry the burden of the expenses associated with housing both you population and ours until February 2012,” she said in the letter Judicial Watch obtained under a public records request.
“The home for the disabled was being leased from the diocese and Jane was supposed to help relocate the residents, not evict them,” Judicial Watch reported. The group contended the comments showed Mrs. Sanders’ heartlessness.
Leave it to the heartless wife of a socialist to pick on poor disabled people, trying to evict them from the only place they call home!
I’ve seen far more concerned tweeting, investigating from reporters on Trump’s fake TIME cover than on Jane & Bernie Sanders’ fake college
