10. Please

The point is to comb through them to find more quotes out of context to use against her.

Transparency never extends to Bernie, what he knew about the data each, excessive campaign contributions in violation of the law. What about this charity his wife has chartered in the Caribbean? Where does that money come from? Who attended the fundraisers he hosted in Martha's Vineyard and on Palm Beach, or at Abbey Rockefeller's house. Bankers who donate recount he had conversations with them. What did they discuss? And why does he continue to tell voters he doesn't take money from Wall Street, when he has?http://www.cnn.com/2016/02/05/politics/sanders-democratic-fundraisers/
What did he know about the inappropriate claims of endorsement or use of logos in mailers? Did he approve those mailers and the email misrepresenting Clintons fundraiser? What about the campaign people who trespassed, took Union pins to wear while campaigning for Sanders? Are any of his campaign staffers held accountable for those problems? What sort of climate exists that such things happen time and time again?

We are supposed to uncritically any excuse Sanders tells the public for his voting record,yet none of you are remotely interested in why Clinton cast the votes she did or even what her voting record is. We are berated I f we don't uncritically accept everything he says, while Clinton is called a liar irrespective of evidence.

Also, I have trouble believing that transparency is some abiding principle when posts recounting Bernie's voting record or life history are censored.

The absolute deference to Sanders is as diametrically opposed to transparency and accountability as possible. When proclamations of transparency extends only to opponents and not politicians one favors, it isn't transparency at all. As long as people demand absolute fealty to a politician, I find such proclamations of principle absurd.

And yes, I'm quite aware that this post is likely to be hidden for my audacity in questioning Bernie, which only proves my point.
