Re: “Burlington to Host Nationwide Mayoral Conference

Nice try. All politicians get campaign donations. Including your beloved Bernie. But with Weinberger you specifically accused him of taking "bribes." You didn't accuse any other politicians of taking bribes. Just Weinberger.

But still no proof.

Congrats, Donald.

Re: “Burlington to Host Nationwide Mayoral Conference

@ Philo

We're still waiting for your proof of your accusation that Mayor Weinberger took bribes to support the mall renewal project. That's a very specific accusation that you made on this site. There's no evidence for that accusation and no rational basis for making it. But you did. You just say stuff. You're more like Trump than you could ever know.

Re: “Burlington to Host Nationwide Mayoral Conference

Fortunately, Mayor Weinberger knows the difference between a growing, thriving, economically successful Burlington and the backward, decaying vision of a handful of washed up, hippie, socialist wannabes who never even took Economics 101 in college.

Re: “Walters: Bernie Sanders Reports $4.9 Million Campaign War Chest

Not even CLOSE to proportionate. Not remotely comparable financial situations.

And, when Weinberger ran for reelection in 2015, he had been an incumbent for 3 years.

When Bernie runs for re-election in 2018 with his $5 million-plus bag of loot, he'll have been an incumbent in the Senate for 12 years, an incumbent in Congress for 28, and an incumbent in Vermont since 1980,

Not the same.

Nice try, though. Keep up your attempts to justify anything Bernie does and your crazy vilification of Weinberger!

Re: “Walters: Bernie Sanders Reports $4.9 Million Campaign War Chest

You talkin Weinberger's 2015 re-election race? $75k for mayor's race in Vermont's largest city where Weinberger had three challengers in the general election (Goodkind, Guma, and Ploof)? Versus $5 MILLION and counting for a US Senate race in Vermont that is more than a year away and where Bernie will absolutely, positively not have a serious challenger, if there are any at all?

You're actually comparing those two situations? Really? You're kiddin, right?

@ embeef2017

No, he's not using the $$ for traveling around the country protecting us from Republicans, because he can't use it for that.

This is for reelection to a totally safe seat -- next year.

Re: “Walters: Bernie Sanders Reports $4.9 Million Campaign War Chest

It's hypocritical because he absolutely, positively, definitively, 100% doesn't need that kind of money, or anything remotely close to it, and because he's constantly complaining and accusing others of "big money politics." In the US's smallest state, he's raised $5 million (and counting) for an election that: a) is well over a year away; b) that he might not even run in; and c) he could probably win in a landslide without spending a single dollar. What he's doing is raising money only because he can, and scaring off anybody from even dreaming of challenging him for the democratic nomination and the general election. That's just downright undemocratic. This game of raising millions of dollars to "scare off" challengers is sick, sick, sick and he's playing it just like the people he loves to criticize. Bernie says, "Get money out of politics -- except for ME." He shouldn't be asking for this kind of out-of-state money and he shouldn't be accepting it.
