Man Who Wants Big Money Out Of Politics Has SPENT MORE THAN ANY CANDIDATE IN 2016

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders always says he wants big money out of politics but he has a funny way of showing it. He has outspent every single candidate so far in 2016.

The Washington Post reports:

Sanders is biggest spender of 2016 so far — generating millions for consultants

The small-dollar fundraising juggernaut that has kept Bernie Sanders’s insurgent White House bid afloat far longer than anticipated has generated another unexpected impact: a financial windfall for his team of Washington consultants.

By the end of March, the self-described democratic socialist senator from Vermont had spent nearly $166 million on his campaign — more than any other 2016 presidential contender, including rival Hillary Clinton. More than $91 million went to a small group of admakers and media buyers who produced a swarm of commercials and placed them on television, radio and online, according to a Washington Post analysis of Federal Election Commission reports.

While the vast majority of that money was passed along to television stations and websites to pay for the advertising, millions in fees were kept by the companies, The Post calculated. While it is impossible to determine precisely how much the top consultants have earned, FEC filings indicate the top three media firms have reaped payments of seven figures.

Sanders’s money blitz, fueled by a $27 average donation that he repeatedly touts, has improbably made the anti-billionaire populist the biggest spender so far in the election cycle. The campaign’s wealth has been a surprising boon for vendors across the country who signed on to his long-shot bid.

It’s ironic because he would spend more as president than any other candidate too.

    Well he’s using other people’s money ,so it’s consistent with his socialist philosophy.Progressive socialist only know how to confiscate other people’s wealth through taxes or deception and spend it to further their cause or themselves personally,usually both.
