Bernie Sanders had an institute?
The Sanders Institute, a think tank founded by the wife and son of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), is shutting down, The Associated Press reported Thursday.
The Vermont institute stopped accepting donations and will suspend all operations by the end of May “so there could not even be an appearance of impropriety,” Jane Sanders told AP.
Kinda sounds like the Clinton Foundation, doesn't it?
Critics have said the think tank blurs lines between family, fundraising and campaigns.
The Vermont senator criticized Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign for her family's nonprofit and is reportedly concerned he will be called hypocritical over the institute.
Speaking to AP, Jane Sanders kept the door open for the institute to begin taking donations again once Bernie Sanders is no longer running for president.
Don't worry, they'll find another way to sell their influence. After all, they're Leftists.
