One of the biggest names in the 2020 field is in trouble.
And every Democrat in America is in a panic.
And you won’t believe which top Trump challenger’s career is on the rocks because of this crime.
Bernie Sanders has long been the favorite of the anti-American, pro-communist wing of the Democrat party.
Part of the love of “Bernie” is that he is not part of the “politics as usual crowd”, and is ethically pure.
And of course, since he is so pure Sanders favors even more crackdowns on First Amendment rights and bigger penalties for campaign violations.
In an exclusive report by The Free Beacon, a Federal Election Commission complaint has been filed against the Bernie Sanders Presidential campaign.
The charges stem from the Sanders’ campaign allegedly hiring foreign nationals in key advisory roles.
According to the Free Beacon:
“The complaint points to the employment of three individuals, including Maria Belén Sisa, an illegal immigrant from Argentina who is in the United States under the protections of DACA and has been named deputy national press secretary for Bernie 2020.
“…Both the work for the campaign and contributions are ‘direct and serious violations’ of federal election law, the complaint argues.
Foreign nationals are prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in the decision-making process of any person with regard to election-related activities, according to the FEC. Included in this group of foreign nationals are all immigrants not lawfully admitted as permanent residents.”
The complaint was filed on March 21 by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation and argues that the position of Deputy National press Secretary held by Sisa is, due to its highly strategic nature, is a clear violation of the law.
“Senator Sanders and Bernie 2020 is permitting a foreign national, Ms. Sisa, to serve in an advisory position which allows her to directly or indirectly participate in the decision-making process of persons with regard to election-related activities in violation of FEC regulations,” it argues.
The complaint also includes two other foreign nationals on the Sanders 2016 campaign, Erika Andiola, and Cesar Vargas, who both held advisory roles.
“Due to the high profile of Cesar Vargas, Erika Andiola, and Maria Belén Sisa as leading activists in the undocumented community, there is reason to believe that respondents are ‘foreign nationals’ within the meaning of 52 U.S.C. § 301219b)(2), and in violation of 11 C.F.R. § 110.20 (i) and A.O. 2004-26, directly or indirectly participated in the decision-making process of persons with regard to the election-related activities of Bernie 2016,” the complaint says.
Of course, if these allegations are true – and they appear to be—Sanders could be facing serious charges and if nothing else this is a stain on his supposed “whiter than Vermont snow” ethics persona.
So far neither Sanders nor the Sanders’ campaign has responded to multiple requests for comment on this matter.
We will keep you updated as these complaints move forward.
