Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane Sanders tried to evict disabled people out of their group home instead of negotiating a transfer of the disabled residents before the school took over the property in a shady land deal she spearheaded, according to records obtained by conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch.
In a letter to an attorney, Jane Sanders callously says, “It is simply not fair to expect the College to continue to carry the burden of the expenses associated with housing both your population and ours until February 2012.” Reminder, this is the same Sanders who is a staunch supporter of ‘single payer’ healthcare. Typical Socialist…they love funding everything as long as it’s with other people’s money.

Amid a deepening federal investigation of Jane Sanders, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ wife, Judicial Watch has obtained records that paint a rather disturbing personal portrait of a heartless spouse—and longtime political advisor—of the Democratic Socialist candidate for president of the United States. During the Obama administration, the FBI began investigating Jane for falsifying documents to obtain a $10 million loan to expand a now-defunct liberal arts college in a town where her husband once served as mayor while she was the school’s president.
The loan went through, some allege after her husband’s senatorial office pressured the bank to approve it, and Jane masterminded a deal to purchase an undeveloped, 32-acre parcel of land and a 77,000-square-foot facility from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington. The purchase included a facility that served as a group home for disabled people and, under the terms of the deal, Jane was supposed to negotiate the transfer of the disabled residents before the school took over the property. Instead Jane tried to kick the disabled people out of their group home, records obtained by Judicial Watch show. The records, part of an ongoing Judicial Watch investigation into the Jane Sanders fraud case, include electronic mail exchanges between Jane when she was president of Burlington College and two former mayors of the city of Burlington.
In a lengthy letter to the attorney (Todd Centybear) representing the group home for the disabled Jane indicates that she’s having trouble evicting the 16 residents from their building on the newly purchased property after the college had acquired the land. She writes: “It is simply not fair to expect the College to continue to carry the burden of the expenses associated with housing both your population and ours until February 2012.” The home for the disabled was being leased from the diocese and Jane was supposed to help relocate the residents, not evict them. The exchange shows, not only Jane’s heartlessness, but also her incompetence as the college president for not ensuring the negotiated transfer of those disabled people before the school took over the property.
As TGP previously reported, CNN’s Erin Burnett brought up a recent report stating Jane Sanders has hired lawyers amid an FBI investigation about a land deal she was involved in and Bernie Sanders came unhinged.
Sanders said, “Excuse me! My wife is about the most honest person I know. When she came to that college, it was failing financially, academically. When she left it, it was in better shape than it had ever been.” (yeah completely bankrupt while she walked away with a 6 figure severance).
