Re: “Vermont GOP Official Disputes Claim That Sanders Pressured Bank

I have lived in Vermont and Maine. States similar because of how things happen. In Maine, a number of years ago, when I worked in Washington DC, I called the VP of a bank with whom I had met in person once through mutual friends. I needed a bridge loan on a house I was trying to buy. The loan was approved over the phone. I am sure this was not normal business practice but, in a state where everyone knows everyone, it is often how things get done. There was nothing nefarious about the transaction and I doubt there was anything diabolical about Bernie calling the bank (if he did) to ask what Jane could do to move the loan along or to say can you take a look at Jane's loan and try to make sure it is going forward. I think it is fair to say they Bernie has probably shaken hands with tens of thousands of Vermonters. He won 80+% of the primary vote. No story here. Someone is envious and trying to taint the reputations of the Sanders.

Re: “What a 1987 Tax Battle Says About Bernie Sanders

lunabearcat If Bernie Sanders was beholden to the NRA one would assume the organization would give him better than a "D" rating. Bernie Sanders is beholden to no one other than the voters he represents.
