Since we all know all too well how “Socialists” and “Communists” operate, this should be of no surprise to anyone. It appears Jane Sanders, the wife of Socialist Senator and past Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has gotten herself into some hot water.
Just like any good Socialist Jane Sanders, who was president of a very small Burlington College between 2004 to 2011, Decided to scheme her students in order to drive up admissions from 200 to 400 full-time students. In order to do this, the college would require take on $10 million in debt to finance the purchase additional land for a new campus.
The plan included the purchase of a 33-acre plot on the shores of Lake Champlain which is owned by the Catholic Diocese of Burlington. The land even included an old building that used to be an orphanage, which was supposed to be the new college building.
People’s Bank agreed to purchase the bonds but only if the college was able to get at least $2.27 million in grants and donations prior to closing from donors. Sanders at the time of pre-approval of the loan stated she already had 2.6 million in donor funds lined up and that this number was just the beginning. So being the good Socialist that she is, in 2010, she went on to apply for 6.7 million in tax-exempt bonds. All of which were clearly a lie on Sander’s behalf, with intent to commit fraud. But I’m sure she won’t do any prison time because left-wing elitists like her who don’t know what an eyeliner is for always go free. Just ask Hillary.
“In a Dec. 22 email, Paul Van de Graaf, chief criminal lawyer for the U.S. attorney’s office, wrote to Bachman: “I think we need to make sure there is nothing significant to our federal investigation before (the records) are destroyed.”
Van de Graaf told Bachman the U.S. attorney would pay for the state to extend its lease on the property where the records were being stored. Bachman then drafted two resolutions for the Burlington College board to approve.
One resolution gave the U.S. attorney permission to “review and take possession” of the records being stored by the Agency of Education. The second authorized the Agency of Education to destroy any records that remain in its possession. Both are signed by Burlington College board Chair Yves Bradley and dated Dec. 28.
Van de Graaf and another lawyer with the U.S. attorney’s office began sifting through the Burlington College records Jan. 4, according to the emails.
On Feb. 2, Bachman told Van de Graaf that FBI special agent Patrick Hanna had requested an additional month to review the Burlington College records. She asked Van de Graaf to make sure he had the records he needed before March 1, so the state could begin shredding whatever remained.
The FBI spokesman VTDigger spoke with declined to say what Hanna does for the bureau.
Bachman said this week that the Agency of Education has now destroyed the remaining nonacademic records from Burlington College.
Bradley, the board chair, said Thursday that he was aware of an FBI investigation into Burlington College for more than a year. He said he and other board members were informed of the inquiry by Coralee Holm, who was at that time dean of operations and advancement.
Holm and others connected to the college were subpoenaed by the FBI, according to Bradley. Agents told Holm she could inform the board of trustees that an investigation was taking place, but she was directed not to provide any further information, Bradley said.
Holm, who is now public information officer for South Burlington, did not return a call seeking comment Thursday.
Bradley said he had no contact with the FBI or U.S. attorney — except through the college’s lawyer — and was not aware of who else was subpoenaed.”
I’m sure all “fairness” loving liberals will get out of this fraud is a warm tingly feeling knowing Mr. and Mrs. Sanders are meant to be with each other. They are both con artists who have no shame. She defrauded a bank. The other, who is a charlatan who didn’t have a real job until he was elected to public office at the age of 40, defrauded an army of millennial voters into believing he “cared” during the 2016 primary season.
