7. Did the the taxes reveal how much money Jane may have gotten for "ad buys" in 2016?

 

Was there any solid info in them about the mysterious “Old Towne Media?”

Pardon my ignorance, I have been on a news blackout for about a week.

I like Bernie, but my sense is he isn’t very financially transparent, especially regarding Jane’s income that she may have derived from Bernie’s various campaigns over the years.

Thanks in advance for your help, I would really appreciate hearing your take.

30. It is a fair question.

 

Jane was a paid member of his 2016 and past campaigns.


snip

“Bernie’s top adviser always has been and will continue to be Jane,” said Jeff Weaver, a Sanders adviser. She has a voice in almost every major political decision her husband makes, travels with him for major events and is deeply involved in formulating policies, issues and campaign infrastructure. “At every level,” Weaver said, “Jane is intimately involved.”

kept his word.

It took three years and having to compare him to Trump, but he finally kept his word.

15. There were a couple of dozen threads the first couple days.

 

You could probably find them if you wanted to know what was being discussed.

27. I've seen a number of posts about it since he released them.

 

Mostly from his supporters highlighting his one percent status. Did you have something to say about them.

With respect to his finances, I think it seems to have moved to his campaign purchasing almost half a million dollars worth of his books followed up by his extensions on his next report ending in him not having to file. There is a serious lack of transparency. Thanks for bringing it up.
