Bernie Sanders hoped this information would never go public.
His supporters were shocked by one illegal act.
Now Bernie Sanders is in hot water after this shocking crime was brought to light.
During Joe Biden’s Presidency Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has stayed out of the spotlight.
With Biden’s political future murky at best, supporters of Sanders have floated the idea of a third Presidential bid from the aging socialist in 2024.
But a major scandal was unearthed after Bernie Sanders’ 2016 and 2020 Presidential campaigns were hit with a fine for employing illegal aliens.
The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) handed down a fine totaling $15,000 that both Presidential campaigns will pay.
According to the FEC, the Sanders campaign “knowingly” violated federal law by employing three “foreign national” staffers in senior positions.
The illegals were from Mexico and Argentina in the U.S. under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program implemented by former President Barack Obama.
DACA was a program that allowed illegals who came to the country before they were 16 to have work permits but not citizenship.
The illegals were senior figures for the Latino outreach effort by the Sanders campaign.
“They were tasked with planning and executing events intended to mobilize the Spanish-speaking and Latino communities to support Sanders and serving as contacts for Latino media outlets,” the FEC ruling on the staffers says. “The employees worked to help craft and deliver campaign policy on the issue of immigration and other issues of interest to the Latino community.”
The Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 prohibits any “foreign national” from “having involvement in the management of a political committee,” the FEC said in its ruling against Sanders.
Dan Backer, a lawyer with First Amendment watchdog group the Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed a complaint in 2019 against the Sanders campaign for hiring the illegals.
“I find it incredibly ironic and not at all surprising that the same people who were so outraged by the Russia hoax were at the same time violating laws to prevent foreign influence in our elections,” Backer told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
This is the latest trouble for a Sanders Presidential campaign for illegally using foreigners.
In 2018, the 2016 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign agreed to pay a $14,500 FEC fine for accepting the help of volunteers from the far-left Australian Labor Party.
“The law is for thee and not for me,” Backer added. “Bernie is like every other corrupt, entitled woke elitist — the law only applies when convenient to their political enemies.”
For a wealthy socialist who owns three homes like Bernie Sanders, the law is for the little people.
After participating in the Russian collusion hoax against Donald Trump, it turns out that Bernie Sanders is more than happy to have socialist foreigners meddle in American elections.
