Bernie Sanders Campaign Now Being Investigated FOR ILLEGAL CONTRIBUTIONS

Guest post by Aleister

Remember back in 2008 and 2012 when the Barack Obama campaign accepted illegal campaign contributions?
Bernie Sanders is following in Barack’s footsteps but for some reason, the Federal Election Commission is actually looking into it.

Maybe, it’s because he’s challenging Washington insider crook Hillary Clinton?

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Feds Flag Thousands of Illegal Bernie Sanders Contributions

Thousands of contributions to Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ campaign in January violated federal campaign finance laws, election regulators said on Thursday.

The Federal Election Commission sent a letter to the Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign committee on Thursday with a 90-page spreadsheet listing 3,457 “excessive, prohibited, and impermissible contributions.”

The campaign’s January financial disclosure filing listed contributions from foreign nationals and unregistered political committees, the FEC said. Other contributions came from donors who exceeded the $2,700 per-election limit.

“Although the Commission may take further legal action concerning the acceptance of [excessive or prohibited] contributions, your prompt action to refund the prohibited amount will be taken into consideration,” the FEC told the campaign.

And this is a guy who claims to be running against a corrupt campaign finance system.

Anyone surprised?
