Sanders misses another financial reporting deadline- May 15th- 20 day Extension to June 4th

Last edited Thu May 18, 2017, 09:07 AM - Edit history (1)

What the heck? Many posts below deleted after yesterday?


WASHINGTON ó U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., missed the May 15 deadline to submit documents detailing his finances during 2016, ... Meanwhile, Vermontís other senator, Democrat Patrick Leahy, filed his report on time.

All U.S. senators are required to file annual reports with the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics, detailing their assets, liabilities and investments, as well as gifts and travel provided by private entities.

Sanders was granted a 20-day extension, and his disclosure is now due June 4. According to Senate rules, extensions may be granted for up to 90 days.

Once filed, the 2016 report will shade in some of Sandersí financial details during an exceptionally busy year for the senator, who ran an upstart bid for president before writing a best-selling book reflecting on the campaign.

edit: This is new news. Filings were due this week on Monday. Article is from Yesterday. Vermont newspaper.

I guess my questions/comments weren't necessarily aimed at you, but the concept. Not sure how you feel about the issue.

This seems like a non-issue to me. He filed for an extension and it was granted. This isn't a problem.

from all our Senators..

Since 2012, Leahy has never missed a deadline or requested an extension, while online records show Sanders requested filing extensions on his 2012, 2014 and 2015 reports.

Endless and vague allegations of corruption tiresome. And coming from someone hiding their own financial records, a bit galling actually. Maybe he's not in a good position himself to be an ally regarding the Russian investigations, I don't know. I have a feeling he's going to take a hard fall.

68. Between the passive aggressive swipes at so many Dems and the propensity

 

To hold out or hold the party hostage, I'm pretty fed up. I'm sure he thinks the ends justifies the shitty means- but I don't see anything good that's come of it so far. I feel like he is still confusing voters as well as normalizing Trump and both those things suck.

73. Yeah this is about current events- we need to realize the RW is saving their attacks on him-

 

And while most of their attacks will have little to no merit, they're just waiting in the wings. And the taxes and bank fraud issues would be bigger.

It's not that he's squeaky clean, it's just he's serving RW agenda and the media right now with this divisiveness. I think we'd see a whole lot of scandal mongering crap if he was really unifying with Dems against Trump.

Until then, I don't see any transparency problem. There's no rush to get his returns for anything going on before then, from what I can tell.

this is a non-issue. Please stop being divisive when we need a united front of Hillary/Obama/Bernie people to deal with the Trump mess.

is supposed to be that rabid Bernie folk are dividing and destroying the party. I continue to see anti-Bernie threads including the bullshit one about 2020 from the other day (how dare Bernie not have a super PAC 3 and a half years out from 2020, that MONSTER!!). Bernie haters need to get over 2016 and keep their eyes on the true enemy: Trump. We need to have a united front to deal with this catastrophic mess and the divisive posts stand in the way of that.

with such low intellect... consistently ranked as one of if not the most popular senator, has the ear of a huge portion of young folk, has haters following his every move to try to take him down because he's so threatening, on all the news shows, a successful book, asked to go along with Perez on a Unity tour where people boo Perez and cheer him, told to go campaign for every house candidate because he's so popular. What a star he is and in such demand for someone so intellectually deficient. Gives hope to everyone out there.

Once someone has an actual scandal, come back and try again. The White House is basically on fire and our democracy under attack and people are concerned about filing deadlines and extensions. What a joke.

I am sure other people can come up with more reasons.

38. Seems to be a repetitive thing

I suspect it has to do with the complexity of his wife's finances. His run for office probably helped too, not to mention the book. But he seems to need this frequently and he hasn't had those excuses.

65. I believe he's the only one to miss the FEC deadline. But up to 90 days can be extended.

 

He's good for 90 more days.

As far as taxes, should he choose to run in 2020, he will have to release them in order to comply with new election laws recently enacted in many States.
These new laws state that if a candidate wants their name on the ballot they must show their tax returns.
Thanks to Trump.

Its actually a law that is needed, to give some semblance of integrity to the process.
Thanks to Trump.

Trump's thumbing his nose at all things has created much mistrust.
Its a fair Law.

69. Have those laws actually been passed? I know there were states considering it but didn't know any

had passed.

97. Sanders is the nation's "most popular active politician,"

right now because he is the only one at the "presidential" campaign level--which is the only office most people pay any attention to.

But he occupies that very prominent position right now because -- very importantly -- he has not ruled out running again for either the Senate in 2018 or the presidency in 2020.

And, of course, he has always avoided producing his financials by kicking that can further down the road. THIS time, if he intends to run for the Senate, he has to make a choice by the upcoming deadline.

That makes this news.

88. To rehash the primary in a sufficiently indirect, passive aggressive fashion

as to avoid getting a hidden post.

53. At some point this may become a story, and since eventually, extensions will run

 

out, we will all finally see if there is anything here worth talking breathless about. This OP is literally saying reporting got delayed for like 2 weeks. Was it article worthy? Was it post worthy?

98. Come on. Reporting was delayed all through the 2015/16 primary

and now in 2017 up through this latest extension.

Aren't you curious why? I don't figure the reason's anything huge. After all, the IRS knows what he hasn't been reporting. It's most likely just something that doesn't fit the image he's created, but he has a year and a half for voters to forget whatever it is, and supporters forgive everything but child molestation in less time than it takes to get a glass of water, most others never hear about it, and the few who do...whatever, according to their natures.

102. I am curious. I hope he didn't do something stupid, because it hurts the things

 


he stands for and people, even democrats, will let it hurt the things he stands for, which is a serious tragedy, but in the scheme of things, the timeline you just laid out, 2 more weeks doesn't really say much. Reporting on it, or more to the point, posting it here, is gossipy, intended to paint him as hiding something, which sure, he might be, and I am sure there are eyes on it that will point that out if such information comes to light, but right now there's nothing here, and he didn't kick it down the road another year this time...again, 2 weeks.

103. Everyone does stupid things, and it's unfair to pretend

they're bigger than they are, but that's how politics are played. If more people were honest and rejected lies and dishonorable behaviors, such as filing phony lawsuits, politics would be very different. No public figure can avoid that these days, but he got far, far, far less of it than his opponent last time and would this time if it came to it.

In any case, I don't think you should imagine tragedy. Besides the extremely short caring curve I mentioned, frankly I sort of suspect by 2018, certainly by 2020, someone else will have risen to leadership. There are a lot of good people out there. Not that he'll be gone, but just maybe sort of a populist elder? That degenerative arthritis in his neck and shoulders looks very painful. My best cast as an oracle, anyway.

But, sure. This final deadline (for the Senate race only) runs in 2 weeks. 2020 we'd be back to the can until or if he won the primary.

70. When my husband was a consultant he routinely filed for tax extensions, would pay in August I think

It's all on the up-and-up, and allows people who are extremely busy in the first part of the year time to get all their paperwork in order.

When he started teaching at the local college he played the game differently. Because the paychecks only came in during the teaching season, he had as much taken out of his paycheck as possible, thus giving us a summer "paycheck" in the form of a tax return.

All 100% legal.

OP. I would have said, "It Clearly Breaks the law"

All your surreptitiousness about 'reporting about present news fools no one. I know what it is about, everyone else knows what it is about and most of us wish you would get over it and talk about what is really important in today's world.

83. I filed for an extension on my taxes one year.

Does that mean I did not file my tax return? No, as long as he was granted the extension, this is no big deal. He has been on the road supporting Democrats and is busy. I would imagine that most Senators have done this.

91. You know, it seems to me that Bernie is fading into the background a bit lately

so I really don't understand these kind of OP's. Bad news is at least news? I really like Bernie so this isn't a dig on him but I just wonder, what's the point of this kind of OP? There is nothing more significant right now than the Trump/Russia/Obstruction story.

The Democrats should be supported in the meantime. If Bernies' follower's want to boost Bernie, then fine but we really should be reporting on positive Democratic stories outside of Trump-gate. I don't see a need for Bernie bashing, just let his story/message find it's place and leave it.... unless it's seriously major shit.
