Democracy requires an informed electorate. Jane Sanders is organizing The Sanders Institute in order to steer progressive ideas and solutions into the nation’s political discourse.

      You know I know you’re very smart and astute, but I don’t agree with you on this, Pplswar. In fact. Tulsi Gabbard recently joined the previous 6 progressive House Reps who do not accept PAC money: https://www.votetulsi.com/node/32953

      Every month Gabbarb becomes more refined as a Progressive. Let this courageous woman evolve.

    I’m not sure I trust Jane to run a legit non profit organization. I think if she wants to help progressives she should run for office. But her history with money shows she bankrupted a University and her husband’s campaign money wasn’t spent wisely. Sorry, but I think this would hurt Bernie rather helping than helping him.

      I’ve seen some reports of Jane’s problems at the university, but no conclusion has yet been reached.

      Jane Sanders’ tenure at the university was an unmitigated disaster and not just financially. There was no formal grievance procedure in place for professors to register complaints with the administration under her leadership and when she fired a popular professor, [href=”https://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/burlington-college-students-press-for-changes-after-profs-dismissal/Content?oid=2135730″] student and faculty protests erupted and “74 of the college’s 170 students and 11 faculty and staff signed a petition calling for the emergency meeting and expressing the view that there’s a ‘crisis in leadership’ at the school.” The piss-poor financial decisions she made — taking out massive, unaffordable loans to make expensive campus expansions and improvements in the hopes attracting more students — were not her decisions alone; they were approved by the college’s board and negotiated by herself and two senior executive-level people and now all three of them are [href=”https://vtdigger.org/2017/04/27/emails-reveal-fbi-justice-probe-burlington-college/”] under FBI investigation because she appears to have misstated pledge amounts (income) on loan application forms given to the bank.

      The other problem with the Sanders Institute is that it has an [href=”https://pplswar.wordpress.com/2017/06/08/10-reasons-why-tulsi-gabbard-should-not-be-a-sanders-institute-fellow/”] anti-progressive as a Fellow, someone who proposed anti-Muslim legislation, voted to make it virtually impossible for Syrian refugees to come to the U.S., and voted against every Progressive Caucus budget.

        Agreed. I’ve never been a fan of Jane. I often wonder if Bernie is aware of who she really is or if he is just oblivious . She’s about money – the opposite of what Bernie professes to stand for.
