Report claims Bernie’s wife attempted to evict disabled group home residents

Jane and Bernie Sanders, faux socialists

Well, this is an interesting development in the “political witch hunt” against him and his wife. Apparently there was no room in one of the Sanders’ three homes to help out the disabled residents…

From Fox News: Sen. Bernie Sanders’s wife has been accused of heartlessly trying to boot disabled group home residents when she was president of a Vermont college and closed on a real estate deal now under FBI scrutiny.

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.

The office of Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., did not return a request for comment.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Vermont initiated eviction proceedings against HowardCenter after selling the 32-acre property to Burlington College, Vermont’s alternative weekly Seven Days reported in March, 2011. The eviction notice gave HowardCenter until November 2010 to leave.

But the diocese extended the notice after HowardCenter said it needed more time to find another home, the paper reported.

Mrs. Sanders was chagrined to be caught up in what amounted to an eviction of mentally disabled tenants, according to the paper.

“We are not trying to be the bad guys here,” she was quoted as saying.  “We have always said that we’d be helpful and we’d try to help them as they found a new home — and we have. At first, we agreed to delay for one semester, and even that was pushing it for us. Six months beyond that is not realistic.”

Sanders  told the weekly that Burlington and the diocese had made financial sacrifices to allow HowardCenter to stay past the eviction date.

“We thought a year’s time was appropriate, and it’s worrisome that they haven’t found a place yet, but there is really no choice any longer,” she was quoted as saying.

  1. Not only did Jane Sanders evict the disabled, she is being investigated by the FBI for bank fraud:

    “Federal investigators are looking into allegations that Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) wife, Jane Sanders, falsified loan documents while she served as the president of Burlington College…in order to expand the college grounds…. [S]ome of the donors Sanders appealed to for help with loans are now in contact with the FBI and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)…. The numbers that donors say they pledged compared to what Sanders documented differ….”

  2. When I first read about her actions, I was so hoping it would get lots of exposure. Thank You.
    She lied about how much money she had raised to get that loan.
    I think she is due a full fiscal audit going back several years.
    I am looking forward to seeing her karma for what she has done.

  3. That’s socialism for you: Every last one of them talks a good line of B.S., but when it comes down to the Bottom Line, they’re capitalists to the core. Only they’re more CUTTHROAT about it than the regular blue collar Joe about it.
    The Secret to the Riddle was laid bare by atheist Albert Camus, who said, “When crime begins to reason about itself, it assumes all the rigors of a syllogism.” All that matters to Bernie and the rest of the “wretched hive of scum and villainy” is that THEY. GET. THEIRS.

    Hey Bernie! Hey Jane! MAY THE DEVIL (AND HILLARY!) TAKE YOU.

  4. Were they paying their rent on time? Were they still under a valid lease? If not then I can see why they were being evicted. A year would then have been plenty of time to secure another house to rent! Property owners pave to make their mortgage payments and rely on the rent money to make those payments. You can not live anywhere rent free. Even the old housing projects collected rent monies even if it was paid by tax payers money!

    Real shame; the “roman catholic diocese” has enough wealth stashed to solve the woes of all the worlds poor and disabled.

  8. Dr. E, according to Professor Doom’s blog, the Mrs. Sander’s scam is
    a favorite for retiring college presidents and other executives. Most
    colleges have bloated enrollment numbers despite fewer feet on campus
    due to the popularity of online courses. Despite fewer students on campus,
    presidents get bond issues approved to build unneeded buildings. They
    pocket the kickbacks from local builders and retire with a nest egg of
    millions of dollars. How do you think the Sanders were able to buy
    three upscale houses AFTER her retirement? Ain’t crony capitalism

  9. In every socialist infrastructure, there are the organizers who deem themselves the elite and not subject to the rules imposed on the masses.
    The elite apply principles like profit and private property to them selves however.
    were the socialist culture totally linear, then all the masses would apply the principles of profit and private property, and then it wouldn’t be socialist anymore.
    figures the citadels of virtue, a college and a catholic diocese would not care enough to provide for the disabled.
    And this is not a political witch hunt, it is a situation where people are evading their taxes and keeping other people’s taxes for their own benefit under false pretenses.
    Bernie figured he cut a deal with Hillary to throw the election in exchange for prosecutorial immunity, but Hillary didn’t win she is getting investigated so he’s going to get nailed. Hillary might throw Bernie under the bus if offered a deal.

    • MeThePeople . . . I for one, do hope that the “bus” runs over not only Bernie, but Killary! I would hope that Bernie, Jane, Killary, Slick Willie, and daughter Chelsea would all just fade away . . . after each of them spends whatever period of time that is justifiable in jail.

  11. “It isn’t enough that his wife destroyed Burlington College and he lined his pockets with the proceeds. Bernie has now set his sights on destroying the entire country with his defunct and debunked fantasies of how wonderful the world be if we learned to stop worrying and love big government. And how bad could state-run healthcare really be? Judging by the Veterans Administration, it would be a nightmare. Do you remember the VA scandal? Do you remember who the chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs committee was when it broke? I’ll give you three guesses but you’ll only need one.

    Bernie freakin’ Sanders.”

  15. Old Berrnie he is a cheap big nose politician of a miserly people. He was a pimple for his mother until her rumatism got to bad but not to worry his sister took up the family trade.


  16. That’s who I’d call for a real estate investment, a communist! Poor (cough!) Bernie is the champion of “everyman”. For someone with Marxist beliefs, he certainly manages to acquire some expensive real estate.

    This guy would have been right at home in the Cheka. There was your “choice”. A Jewish communist or a murdering Satanist. Pick your poison.
