You may have heard that Bernie Sanders’ wife Jane was president of Burlington College in Vermont before it was forced to close. It became quite a scandal which involved a lot of money changing hands under fishy circumstances. Bernie’s stepdaughter was also implicated in that scandal. It may have ended up costing her in this election.
FOX News reports:
Bernie Sanders’ stepdaughter loses bid for mayor of Burlington, Vermont
The stepdaughter of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has lost her bid to become mayor of Vermont’s largest city, the same city where her stepfather launched his political career.
Carina Driscoll, a former state legislator, lost Tuesday’s election for Burlington mayor to the incumbent, Miro Weinberger. This will be Weinberger’s third three-year term as mayor.
Driscoll, who ran as an independent, claimed on the campaign trail that Weinberger, a Democrat, catered private investors instead of advocating for the voters.
However, Driscoll’s campaign was surrounded by controversy early on.
She was slammed for payments her business received from a college her mother used to run.
The people of Burlington are better off. This woman was just trying to cash in on the fact that she is the stepdaughter of Bernie Sanders. People are tired of legacy candidates and rightly so.
