Bernie Sanders and the Australian Collusion!

It looks like good old socialist and former Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders may have been doing a little collusion on his own. This was not with the Russians like the President has been accused of. In this case, Mr. Sanders was possibly colluding with the Australian Labor Party. The Labor’s constitution has long stated: “The Australian Labor Party is a democratic socialist party and has the objective of the democratic socialization of industry, production, distribution, and exchange, to the extent necessary to eliminate exploitation and other anti-social features in these fields”. Fits right in with the goal of Mr. Sanders. Here is how he got in trouble with the FEC.

As Written by ANDREW KERR Investigative Reporter at The Daily Caller News Foundation:

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) fined Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign $14,500 for accepting illegal in-kind foreign contributions from the Australian Labor Party (ALP) during the 2016 elections.

The ruling stems from a February 2016, conservative activist group Project Veritas video showing Australian nationals working for the Sanders campaign on the dime of the Australian taxpayer funded ALP.

Republican and former New Hampshire House speaker William O’Brien filed a complaint with the FEC shortly after Project Veritas made the footage public, alleging the ALP had made “prohibited foreign contributions” to the Sanders campaign, according to WMUR.

The FEC levied the fine against the Sanders campaign in a Feb. 2016-issued conciliation agreement.

The ALP contacted the Sanders campaign according to the FEC and asked permission to allow Australian nationals to be inserted into the campaign as volunteers. The Sanders campaign accepted the ALP’s request, despite knowing the ALP would be paying Australians a daily stipend in addition to covering the cost of their flights to the United States.

While volunteering with the Sanders campaign, the Australians engaged in political activities “including encouraging voter attendance at campaign events, recruiting volunteers, canvassing with volunteers, and planning events,” according to the FEC.
