Keeping up with his man of the people image Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has purchased this third house, a $600,000 lakefront vacation chalet in Champlain Islands.

Part of the traditional campaign negotiations between various camps is the willingness of the endorsed candidate to absorb the campaign debt of the endorser. The tighter the race, the more value is assigned to it. Subsequently, it shouldnt necessarily come as a surprise to see Sanders financially benefiting from his endorsement of Hillary Clinton. How else does a Senator afford three homes on a congressional salary.
Senator Sanders owns one house in Washington DC and another house in Vermont; the $600k vacation home becomes his third, albeit seasonal, residence:
(Via Seven Days Independent) [ ] The Burlington resident last week plopped down nearly $600,000 on a lakefront camp in North Hero.
Sanders new crib has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront on the east side of the island facing Vermont, not New York. The Bern will keep his home in Burlington and use the new camp seasonally.

Who said “CORRUPT BERNIE”??? Clinton Foundation money at work....
Is everybody free to stop by The Peoples’ House for a month or two? To use the beach for the day? Socialists/Commies want to know.
A plane, a house...never has losing been so lucrative.
More like a Dacha. Bought by the donations that averaged $27.13 each!
You mean Gotcha! Gotcha dollars and now I plan on buying a vacation home. Such fools.
is this socialist going to SHARE his house with the rest of the community? Just askin...
I guess the going price for a soul is starting to become very lucrative.
You go away and you get your freakin’ DACHA —simple.
So which is it..? (spits. Tough guy in background throwing stiletto into a corkboard)
The CLINTON SLUSH FUND CHECK CLEARED, eh BERNIE boy, you CREEP???
This should mollify all the Bernies who called their socialist savior a `sell-out’ at the convention when he urged them to get on board with Shrillary.
Dedicating your life to the people can be a lucrative racket ...
Special report: Sanders campaign millions go to mystery firm
No refunds, Bernstooge Bears!
He will make plenty of “legit” money giving speeches, making appearances and writing books. I dont begrudge him this, after all how much has Dr. Carson made selling his book? I am sure he could get advances and loans based on his future earning potential.
The problems imo arise when you or your household or your ‘charity’ take money while you are sitting as a high government official like Secretary of State, or director of the FDA. Dr. Carson holds no office. It can get murky for Senators and Congressmen, esp when groups buy 1000s of copies of your book, but congressmen have only one vote with no discretionary powers. Agency heads and cabinet officials do have discretionary authority, so imo its more cut and dry that they should not be taking money on the side.
Hmmpt. Interesting. Thanks for posting that link.
