The Family That Plays Together, Stays Together

Once again a member of Congress is upset that the media reports facts. This time it is Bernie Sanders(I-VT). Bernie passes around the cash to keep his family in his business.

Bennington Banner Story
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Bernard Sanders used campaign donations to pay his wife and stepdaughter more than $150,000 for campaign-related work since 2000, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission.

This article didn't please Rep. Sanders so he labeled the story "a lie". The Bennington Banner followed up with an editorial about the concerns.
The way Rep. Sanders has reacted to the revelatons, we think, indicates that he realizes how the situation looks. He claims the story was a lie, although the information came from public government records and was confirmed by his own staff, and he does not refute any of the facts in our report.

Those dirty facts are always get in the way of progress.
