Are Bernie and his wife guilty of fraud and corruption?
Should Jane Sanders be charged with bank fraud? Should her husband?
The prospect of Senator Bernie Sanders’s being charged with a finance-related felony — for chiseling a bank, a public agency, and a church out of a seven-figure sum on behalf of a pinko private school known for its study-abroad program in Cuba — suggests an almost Shakespearean undoing. The Vermont socialist has made a pretty good career (the only real job he’s ever had) out of denouncing financial institutions whose businesses and products he does not understand. And he, along with his Democratic-primary rival, Hillary Rodham Clinton, has specifically complained that no major Wall Street figures were charged with criminal wrongdoing after the financial crisis of 2008–09.
