Jane Sanders cries sexism in bank-fraud accusations as GOP hits back
Fox News ^ | 7/16/2017 | Joe Weber

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane Sanders, is crying sexism against the man responsible for an FBI investigation into the allegations she fraudulently obtained a loan for the Vermont college she once oversaw.

“I find it incredibly sexist that basically he’s going after my husband by destroying my reputation, and that’s not OK,” Jane Sanders told The Boston Globe.

The FBI investigation began in early 2016 after Brady Toensing, a former official for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in Vermont and now a candidate for U.S. attorney in the state, filed a complaint alleging Jane Sanders committed bank fraud.

Toensing, according to the Washington Examiner, started researching Jane Sanders in 2014, years before her husband Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., would run for president.

Jane Sanders led the small liberal-arts school Burlington College from 2004 to 2011. The college closed in 2016 after struggling to pay back creditors, and ultimately lost its accreditation.

"Jane Sanders must think Hillary Clinton's campaign was sexist for viewing the alleged bank fraud as a major issue, too," said Michael Ahrens, Rapid Response Director for the RNC. In publicly leaked emails from Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2015, Clinton's team looked into using Jane Sanders’ role in the college’s failure against then-candidate Bernie Sanders.

Jane Sanders and sex? Gag me with a spoon. At least Michelle can expose her arms.

What took her so long? Jane is 66 years old. She should have cried ageism as well.

They must be getting close. You know Hillary is enjoying this and not offering Jane much advice or help.

She’s also fat. She should be claiming “fat shaming”.

I saw that Bernie appeared at some sort of rally in Des Moines, Iowa this past weekend.
Why do progressives always show up with rolled up long sleeves ?

The money quote:

From what source do you suppose the Clinton campaign got this information? Possibly Obama's FBI?

There are four cards in the leftist deck: Racism, Sexism. Islamophobia, and Homophobia. If they can play all four at once, it’s the equivalent of a Royal Flush.

Its a symbol of how “hard” they will work for you. They are rolling up there sleeves.

Of course its all political theater.

None of those cards work when the FDIC investigates you for fraud in loan documents.

So true, the criminal statutes have yet to be amended to provide exemptions for LBTHQ, etc.

When they run out of an actual factual defense they play the race card or the sexism card. Since these are “Trump Cards” (no pun intended) the entire debate must end and we have to walk away.

I think they might as well plead guilty when they are left to these cards left in their hand. Shameful and I am sick of it.

I remind people of a almost forgotten quote from MLK “judge on the content of their character and not on the color of their skin” The individual goes right in the face of Identity Politics.
