Does Bernie Sanders have any scandals associated with him?

or even a hint of corruption?

Is "socialist" and "he's going to raise taxes" or "he's too old" really the only thing people can use against him?

And he's supposed to be unelectable???

I think that's all they have. It's shit none of us care about.

I think he's like Obama. They'll have to make up shit about Sanders, too.

$500,000 ... he basically owns his house.

There cannot be a big money scandal. Relative to the other politicians, he hardly has any.

I haven't seen any scandals. Since the 60's, he's just fought for social cause after cause after cause and not lined his pockets while he did so. That's all I've seen. And that he was pretty broke in his earlier decades.

His ex-wife still likes him - spoke genuinely very well about him.

He literally cannot be bought.

That's part of my appeal to him. He's honest, decent and caring.
