Bernie Sanders returned $470 from the only billionaire who donated to his campaign

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has made it clear his 2020 campaign isn't funded by billionaires.
Except for a little while, it was. Marta Thoma Hall, the wife of a billionaire inventor, gave $470 to Sanders' campaign this summer — and when Sanders' team realized, they promptly returned it, Forbes reports.
Hall's husband David Hall, who "doesn't have as much of an interest in politics," holds a patent on a self-driving car sensor, and his stake in the Velodyne company has recently been valued at over $1 billion, Forbes writes. That essentially makes Hall a billionaire too — and the only one Forbes could find who donated to Sanders' campaign. She's also given around $500 to some other Democratic contenders, including Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and says she wasn't even aware of the $2,800 individual limit on single campaign donations.
Sanders' campaign, meanwhile, makes it clear his website is "paid for by Bernie 2020 (not the billionaires). He's also publicly claimed billionaires "shouldn't exist." So when Forbes asked why there was a billionaire on his donor list, a Sanders spokesperson thanked the publication and said it would be "returning Ms. Hall's contributions."
Hall found the return of her money "disappointing," she said. "I don't understand why they would do that. That's ridiculous," she told Forbes. Still, one has to respect the adherence to the brand.

  1. Yeah sure Bolshevik Bernie is SO pious.
    Bolshevik Bernie saw what happened to BabyBeto ....
    Bernie won't BUY your guns, just OUTLAW them.
    The Bolsheviks want you to be easy prey.
    Every American should be studying the HOLODOMOR and STALIN'S terror.
    Learn what the Bolsheviks did to Christian Ukrainians and Russians.
    Because you may soon be RELIVING it.
    “All you freedom-loving “left wing” thinkers in the West! You left-laborites! You progressive American, German, and French students! As far as you are concerned, this whole book of mine is a waste of effort. You may suddenly understand it all someday – but only when you yourselves hear ‘hands behind your backs there!’ and step ashore on our Archipelago.”Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    After the Bolsheviks imposed "COMMON SENSE" gun laws:
    "And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more - we had no awareness of the real situation... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward." -- Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago

  2. Now let's see Bernie move into the Chicago Ghetto.
    This should apply to ALL who pose as liberals but live as Conservatives and then attack Conservatives for daring to defend themselves. Make every White "liberal" integrate a Black neighborhood , after all they want YOU "integrated". Make them walk home with their groceries through the gang infested streets that their "liberalism" created We need the : "Close RACIST LIBERAL HYPOCRITE BIGOT Bernie Sanders loopholes" Act....
    if you demonstrate & DEMAND people integrate ---- YOU have to live in a DIVERSE neighborhood !!!!!! MOVE Sanders into the Chicago Ghetto so he can spend his declining years mixing with those "People of Color" he SAYS he loves. Don't you DARE demand I integrate while YOU RUN AWAY .
    Sanders was born and raised in the New York City borough of Brooklyn and graduated from the University of CHICAGO in 1964. While a student, he was an active civil rights protest organizer for the Congress of Racial Equality and STUDENT (not really)NONVIOLENT COORDINATING COMMITTEE. Then Bernie ran to Vermont in 1968, to get away from SCHVARTZES to raise HIS family in safety.
    In January 1962, Sanders led a rally at the University of Chicago administration building to protest university president George Wells Beadle's segregated campus housing policy. "We feel it is an intolerable situation when Negro and White students of the university cannot live together in university-owned apartments," Sanders said at the protest. But then Sanders ran to SAFE LILLY WHITE VERMONT to raise HIS children far away from those SCHVARTZES he demands you raise your children among.
