Feel The Bern: Commie Candidate And Wife Steered Campaign, Nonprofit Money To Their Family And Friends

Sanders And Wife Steered Campaign, Nonprofit Money To Family And Friends – Washington Free Beacon

.
…………….

.
Bernie Sanders and his wife have on numerous occasions steered money from organizations under their control to friends and family members, public records show.

The payments benefitted the wife of the Democratic presidential candidate, his stepdaughter, and the son of a former colleague in city government whom Sanders has described as a close friend.

Sanders, a self-described socialist, is now running for the presidency on an anti-corruption platform, decrying public officials’ attempts to use their positions for personal financial gain.

Following 16 years as a member of the House, Sanders was elected to the Senate in 2006. His political campaigns were an early vehicle for payments to his family members.

According to Jane O’Meara Sanders, the senator’s wife, Sanders’ House campaigns paid her more than $90,000 for consulting and ad placement services from 2002 to 2004. She pocketed about $30,000 of that money.

Her daughter Carina Driscoll, Sanders’ stepdaughter, also drew a salary from the campaign. She was paid more than $65,000 between 2000 and 2004, according to her mother.

After working for the campaign, the senator’s wife would come under scrutiny for expenditures at Burlington College, where she was hired as president in 2004. While she led the school, it paid six-figure sums to her daughter and the son of a family friend.

Burlington College offered its students a study abroad program in the Caribbean, according to tax filings. It reported spending about $47,000 on that program in the tax year beginning in mid-2008.

Around that time, the son of Jonathan Leopold, a Burlington College board member, purchased a small resort in the Bahamas called Andro’s Beach Club and an accompanying hotel, Nathan’s Lodge.

Leopold served with Sanders in the Burlington city government – as mayor, Sanders appointed Leopold city treasurer – before becoming embroiled in scandal involving millions of dollars in payments to a Burlington telecommunications company.

Sen. Sanders has described Leopold as so close a friend as to be considered “family.” He reportedly discouraged Sanders’ socialist impulses early in their careers. Efforts to reach Leopold were unsuccessful.

Shortly after Leopold’s son, also named Jonathan, purchased the resort, Burlington College began writing it large checks for all-inclusive stays for its study abroad students.

The younger Leopold later said during a deposition related to a lawsuit filed by a student who was injured at the rest that he conducted boat tours and snorkeling trips “on behalf of Burlington College.”

From 2009 through 2011, when O’Meara Sanders stepped down as president of the school, it paid the resort about $68,000, according to annual tax filings. The payments stopped the year after she left the position.

Her departure was a source of controversy. She reportedly overstated pledged contributions to the school in order to secure a loan from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington. The diocese lost between $1.5 million and $2 million on the deal, according to local reports.

By that time, the school had paid huge sums to the Vermont Woodworking School, which is run by Driscoll. The college eventually paid the school more than $500,000 for classes at its Fairfax, Vt., campus, about 30 miles from Burlington.

Burlington College even established a Master of Fine Arts program in woodworking with leased space at the school as its major facility.

Tax filings show that the college continued paying the woodworking school in the year after O’Meara Sanders left, but stopped doing so the year after that.

The Sanders campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

Your Daley Gator Feel-Good Story O’ The Day

Armed Kidnappers Take Man’s Wallet And Force Him To Drive To An ATM. But When One Talks Of Going Back To Harm His Wife, Victim Pulls Out A Gun. – The Blaze

A Mississippi man was putting things into his truck at his house near Jackson just before 7 a.m. Saturday when two armed men approached him, forced him into his house and took his wallet, police told WABT-TV.

Then they ordered him to drive them to an ATM, WLBT-TV reported.

But after one of the kidnappers talked of kicking the victim out of his Toyota truck so the pair could return to his house and harm his wife, the man did something they likely didn’t expect.

He grabbed his own gun from his truck and fatally shot one of the kidnappers, police told WLBT.

The other kidnapper got away on foot and was still at large Saturday night, police told WLBT. Authorities described him as a black male with a bandana and dark shirt possibly driving a tan SUV with no tags, the station said.

Police were calling the victim’s actions a justifiable homicide but said it will go to a grand jury, WABT noted.

Many residents in the neighborhood told WLBT the kidnapped man is a doctor, but police didn’t confirm that information.

Moron Calls Cops To Report His Wife Stole His Cocaine

Man Calls 911 To Report Wife Stole His Cocaine – Smoking Gun

An Ohio man called 911 to report that his wife had stolen his cocaine, according to cops who subsequently arrested him on drug and other charges.

.
…………………..

.
Robert Collins, 39, dialed the police emergency line late Wednesday night to report the cocaine theft, according to an Alliance Police Department report that does not detail the wherabouts of Collins’s spouse or the cocaine.

When officers arrived at Collins’s residence, he apparently had a change of heart and “refused to tell police why he called 911.”

Investigators reported that Collins, who “had a pipe used to smoke marijuana in his possession,” was “arrested and charged with misuse of 911 and drug paraphernalia.” He also had an active arrest warrant in connection with a 2013 criminal case.

Collins, pictured above, was booked into the Stark County jail on the misdemeanor counts. He is scheduled for arraignment today in Municipal Court in Alliance, a city about 60 miles from Cleveland.

The Leftist Douchebaggery Continues Unabated In Wisconsin (Videos)

Former Prosecutor Says Wisconsin Investigation Fueled By “Hyper-Partisan” DA And Union Activist Wife – Hot Air

Last we checked on Gov. Scott Walker, he was (a) knotted in the polls with his Democratic challenger, and (b) fending off mind-bendingly dishonest media coverage of the scurrilous investigation into Wisconsin conservative groups – which has been summarily thrown out of court by two different judges. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals took up the ‘Joe Doe’ circus yesterday, as twice-thwarted prosecutors sought to have their secret probe reinstated; lawyers for the Wisconsin Club for Growth, one of the targeted organizations, argued that a scathing lower court ruling shutting down the investigation and exposing the prosecutors to misconduct lawsuits ought to be be upheld. A press account of Tuesday’s oral arguments said the judges, “repeatedly quizzed lawyers… why the federal courts should weigh in on a state investigation” at all. Leading up to the proceedings, former FEC official Hans Von Spakovsky penned an op/ed in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel spelling out what’s at stake in the case:

The fact that such a secret persecution of citizen advocacy organizations even occurred ought to be an embarrassment to a state that prides itself on being a progressive bastion of individual freedom. It is more reminiscent of a banana republic than the world’s foremost democracy… The [conservative] group’s supposed “crime” was coordinating its efforts on public policy issues with elected officials such as Gov. Scott Walker and with other conservative advocacy organizations. This resulted in SWAT-like raids in the middle of the night by armed law enforcement officials to seize “evidence,” as if these organizations were dangerous drug cartels or mob operations. Last week, I joined three other former members of the Federal Election Commission in filing an amicus (“friend of the court”) brief for the organizations unfairly targeted.

Based on our extensive experience interpreting federal campaign finance law, we argue that issue advocacy is at the core of our rights to free speech, to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. The right of citizens and their membership associations to directly engage elected leaders is all the more important on politically charged questions of public policy. Such collaboration is the norm in the political arena, where there is extensive interaction between citizens groups and elected officials about proposed legislation. In fact, such coordination is vital to a functioning democracy… I hope that the civil rights lawsuit filed against these prosecutors is successful and results in a large judgment that deters this type of investigation from ever happening again.

As we await the panel’s ruling – which is expected before the upcoming elections – a new report from respected journalist and Brookings senior fellow Stuart Taylor, Jr. sheds fresh light on the possible motivations behind the whole imbroglio. According to a source described as a former prosecutor with firsthand knowledge of the investigation’s inner workings, Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisolm’s efforts have been driven by intense partisanship. The source says Chisolm’s wife is a fanatical anti-Walker agitator, and assesses the entire inquiry as a vindictive political crusade:

A longtime Chisholm subordinate reveals for the first time in this article that the district attorney may have had personal motivations for his investigation. Chisholm told him and others that Chisholm’s wife, Colleen, a teacher’s union shop steward at St. Francis high school, a public school near Milwaukee, had been repeatedly moved to tears by Walker’s anti-union policies in 2011, according to the former staff prosecutor in Chisholm’s office. Chisholm said in the presence of the former prosecutor that his wife “frequently cried when discussing the topic of the union disbanding and the effect it would have on the people involved… She took it personally.” Citing fear of retaliation, the former prosecutor declined to be identified and has not previously talked to reporters. Chisholm added, according to that prosecutor, that “he felt that it was his personal duty to stop Walker from treating people like this.” Chisholm was referring to Gov. Walker’s proposal – passed by the legislature in March 2011 – to require public employee unions to contribute to their retirement and health-care plans for the first time and limited unions’ ability to bargain for non-wage benefits.

This former Chisolm associate goes on to allege that the culture within his office was about as far removed from the paradigm of impartial law enforcement as could be imagined:

Chisholm said his wife had joined teachers union demonstrations against Walker, said the former prosecutor. The 2011 political storm over public unions was unlike any previously seen in Wisconsin…Chisholm’s private displays of partisan animus stunned the former prosecutor. “I admired him [Chisholm] greatly up until this whole thing started,” the former prosecutor said. “But once this whole matter came up, it was surprising how almost hyper-partisan he became… It was amazing… to see this complete change.” The culture in the Milwaukee district attorney’s office was stoutly Democratic, the former prosecutor said, and become more so during Gov. Walker’s battle with the unions. Chisholm “had almost like an anti-Walker cabal of people in his office who were just fanatical about union activities and unionizing. And a lot of them went up and protested. They hung those blue fists on their office walls [to show solidarity with union protestors] …At the same time, if you had some opposing viewpoints that you wished to express, it was absolutely not allowed.”

Read Taylor’s whole story, which traces the history of the ‘John Doe’ campaign finance probe and describes the pair of lower court decisions that lowered the boom on overzealous prosecutors. Not one person has been charged throughout the ordeal (let alone indicted or convicted), and prosecutors admit that Walker hasn’t even been served with a single subpoena. Meanwhile, conservatives in Wisconsin say the groundless, never-ending, punitive, secret investigation has frozen them into a state of paralysis, which they argue is a clear violation of their rights. President Obama’s former White House counsel appears to agree:

Bob Bauer, one of the nation’s leading election law experts, counters that however valid the reformers’ concerns may be, the Wisconsin investigation raises important constitutional and policy issues. “There are serious problems with the effort to prohibit or limit issue ad coordination,” Bauer said. “I’m very wary of using the criminal law to enforce them.” Punishing coordination, Bauer said, would “drive apart natural allies who should be free to collaborate on common political goals.” …Since Bauer served as President Obama’s White House Counsel, he cannot be discounted as a conservative partisan.

This is only the latest skirmish in the Left’s apparent campaign to criminalize political disagreement – ranging from a proposed Constitutional amendment restricting political speech, to an endless ‘Bridgegate’-to-nowhere investigation in New Jersey, to the utterly preposterous indictments against Texas Gov. Rick Perry. If these tactics prove successful, what’s to stop agenda-driven prosecutors in heavily partisan jurisdictions from routinely cooking up criminal inquiries and charges for the sole purpose of hanging a dark cloud over a rival politician during an election season? By the time the target has time to clear his or her name, the political damage has been done. The attack ads already aired. The people already voted (see: Stevens, Ted and DeLay, Tom). Genuine public corruption is a scourge that must be rooted out, but abusing the legal system to harass and silence ideological opponents is disgraceful. I’ll leave you with one of Walker’s latest ads touting Wisconsin’s job growth, followed by an RGA hit on Mary Burke:

.

.

.
Democrats are now seizing on new projections of a future structural deficit – estimated to emerge between 2015 and 2017 – to pummel Walker. These gripes come from the same people who left Wisconsin drowning in a $3.6 billion sea of red ink, which Walker has mopped up by reducing spending and reforming the budget, all while lowering taxes across the board. A Republican member of the state’s Joint Finance Committee offers a six-point primer on what Democrats won’t mention as they fulminate about potential structural deficits, which they suddenly care about very deeply. His first point: Walker and the Republican legislature have produced a string balanced budgets, leading to a sizable surplus and a robust rainy day fund. These latest projections employ a static analysis that assumes no efforts will be undertaken to adapt, respond, and achieve balance.

MS-13 Gang Members Allowed To Roam Free In U.S., But Wife Of Marine Veteran Thrown In Prison (Video)

MS-13 Gang Members Allowed Into U.S., But Wife Of Marine Veteran Thrown In Prison – Daily Sheeple

While the Obama regime is rolling out the red carpet for illegal aliens as they cross our border, one woman found herself thrown in a high security prison. You see, this woman was not of Mexican descent. This woman was not of Central American descent. Oleksandra Bronova is a Ukrainian National and she was singled out by border agents as she tried to cross the border with her American husband.

.

.
Unlike the majority crossing the border, she knows English. In fact, she is a Cambridge graduate and actually speaks five languages. Also, unlike many crossing the border illegally, Bronova has no criminal history. Yet, she was arrested while known members of the notorious MS-13 gang have been granted entrance in their illegal crossing into America.

Many crossing the border are stating they are looking to be reunited with family. In many cases, those family ties are made up. This woman, however, is married to an American citizen, a former Marine, Bryan Price. He was with her when they were attempting to cross the border and she was apprehended.

Bronova left her country because of the danger in the war-torn area. Fearing for her safety, after her family fled the Ukraine, Price leased her a house in Juarez, Mexico. She had a visitors permit there and they planned to work on her U.S. visa paperwork.

As news of tens of thousands of people crossing the border became widespread, a friend suggested to Bronova and Price that they attempt to cross the border as well, stating they would likely be okay since Price is an American citizen.

After they legally married, they traveled to the Santa Teresa Bridge in El Paso with their marriage license and all other pertinent documents. That is when the nightmare began.

KFOX14 reports on their story.

He said border agents immediately pulled the couple into a secondary room.

“They started to ask, ‘Well, why didn’t she finish her documents in the Ukraine?’ And I said, ‘Well, there’s a war in her region. That’s the reason why.’ And they started asking us why she just couldn’t return and I said, ‘Well, there’s still battling going on to this day there,’” Price said. “She was then handcuffed and taken into another room.”

Price said he spoke to the man who was processing them and said if there was a serious issue they would just go back to Juarez.

“He ignored me. About an hour later, he comes in, and gets me and says we’ve decided to detain her,” he said.

Price said the agents took his wife to an El Paso processing facility, which wasn’t unexpected.

However, things changed when he called the next morning.

“They informed me at that point that she had been moved to Otero federal prison facility – Otero unit one. Well, this is where things started to go very bad,” Price said.

Price said he was told El Paso facilities were filled to capacity, which is why Bronova was transferred.

He immediately drove to the Otero County Prison see her, and she greeted him shackled and chained.

“She was already shaken. When she came in the room it was (tears). I mean she was shaking and crying,” Price said.

That was the last time he saw his wife and he was told she was only allowed one visit per week. She also wouldn’t be able to make any phone calls.

Not surprisingly, Price said he is shocked at how his wife has been treated, thrown into a prison with murderers and rapists. He said, “I’m shocked, as a U.S. veteran and a former Marine that has fought for this country, I’m appalled.”

The couple’s attorney is working on asylum for Bronova. Whether or not she receives it will determine if she gets to stay in the U.S.

KFOX14 has inquired with federal agents why Central American illegal aliens, many with criminal histories, were being granted entrance, while someone with no criminal history has been thrown into a maximum security prison. The feds demanded a privacy waiver from Bronova before answering. Although the news station secured the privacy waiver, federal officials have still not responded to the question.

Likely Obama Voter Calls 911 Because The Zipper On His Wife’s Jacket Got Stuck (Audio)

Man Calls 9-1-1 For Wife’s Jammed Zipper – WorldNetDaily

.
…………

.
An emergency call about a stuck zipper takes the top prize this week in the Washington County, Oregon, dispatch agency’s “You called 9-1-1 for that?!” campaign.

A man called 9-1-1 because the zipper was stuck on his wife’s coat and she could not get it off. The man told the dispatcher he didn’t want to ruin the coat and needed help.

Listen to the 9-1-1 call:

.

.
OPERATOR: 9-1-1 police, fire and medical.

CALLER: Yeah we got a problem here. My wife is struggling in her jacket and can’t get it off. I want 9-1-1 here immediately.

OPERATOR: Is she not breathing?

CALLER: She’s alright, she just can’t get her [expletive] jacket off.

Mark Chandler, a spokesman for the dispatch center, said the fire department responded and removed the jacket without damaging it.

Each week, the agency posts the “most ridiculous use of 9-1-1″ winner on the their Facebook page and Twitter account. The campaign’s goal is to educate people on the proper use of the emergency service, according to the Oregonian newspaper.

The callers’ voices are electronically distorted to conceal their identities.

Schmuck Fakes His Own Kidnapping Just To Get A Night Away From His Wife

Rogelio Andaverde Jailed After He Faked His Own Kidnapping To Get A Night Away From Wife – Weekly Vice

Rogelio Andaverde, a 34-year-old Texas man, was jailed Thursday after he allegedly faked his own kidnapping in an effort to dump his wife for a night of partying.

.

According to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office, Andaverde and his wife were home at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday when two masked men broke into their home and kidnapped Andaverde at gunpoint.

Investigators say the Sheriff’s Office launched a manhunt, but called it off a few hours later when no leads developed on the case.

Andaverde arrived back home Thursday morning, explaining to his wife that his captors “just let him go.”

When officers arrived on the scene to interview Andaverde, something about his explanation didn’t sound right to them. Andaverde was taken into custody and interviewed again at the Sheriff’s Office.

He reportedly admitted to investigators that he fabricated the kidnapping because he wanted to go out drinking with his friends.

“I don’t think his wife appreciated being kept until 4 or 5 in the morning, being interviewed by the cops while her husband was out doing who knows what with who knows who,” said Hidalgo County Sheriff, Guadalupe Trevino. “He’s going to have a lot of answering to do.”

Andaverde was booked into jail and charged with making a false report to police. He was released after posting $5,000 bail.

Psycho Wife Repeatedly Stabbed Husband In His Sleep Because He Was Snoring

Wife Reaches Breaking Point Over Husband’s Snoring, Repeatedly Stabbed Him As He Slept – Weekly Vice

Dawn Weiser, a 44-year-old Arkansas woman, has been jailed after she allegedly stabbed her husband repeatedly because he was snoring.

.
……….

According to police, officers were dispatched to the couple’s home after 43-year-old Doug Weiser awoke around 3:30 a.m. to find his wife repeatedly stabbing him with a butcher’s knife.

Investigators say the victim wrestled the knife away from his wife before the couple’s two teenage sons came to his aid.

The victim told detectives that he and his wife had argued that evening about his snoring, prompting her to sleep in a bedroom with one of their sons while he slept alone in the couple’s bedroom.

Dawn Weiser told detectives that she awoke to a loud noise during the night and walked in to find her husband with stab wounds. She went on to insist that an intruder was responsible for the stabbing, despite the evidence against her.

Investigators say Dawn later confessed to stabbing her husband and then hiding the knife.

The issue of snoring had apparently annoyed Dawn to a point where she began mentioning it on various social media sites like Twitter.

Dawn Weiser was booked into the Washington County Detention Center and charged with suspicion of attempted murder. She was released after posting $25,000 bond.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for a punctured spleen, a lacerated liver and three stab wounds.

He filed for divorce a few days later, according to court records.

Illegal Alien Jailed For Domestic Violence Makes Bail, Then Stabs Wife To Death

Illegal Alien Makes Bail, Stabs Wife To Death – Downtrend

A California county’s refusal to detain an illegal alien, accused of violence, has ended in tragedy. Mario Chavez was charged with several serious crimes related to a domestic fight in August of this year. He made bail, ignored a restraining order and stabbed his wife to death. What makes this crime even more horrific is that it should have never happened. Chavez was in this country illegally and should have been detained, but Santa Clara County, where the crime occurred, doesn’t honor federal immigration requests to hold undocumented lawbreakers.

.
…………………

During the violent domestic argument, Chavez threatened his wife and 6-year old son with a knife. He was charged with criminal threats, child endangerment and brandishing a weapon. Chavez’s wife was also granted a protective order as a result of the incident. Despite the seriousness of the charges, a judge set the bail at $8000, which Chavez was able to post.

The restraining order provided no protection. Two weeks after the incident, Chavez went to his house and viciously stabbed his wife to death. The couple’s two young children were in the next room watching cartoons as their father killed their mother. It was a senseless homicide that could have been stopped if Chavez’s immigration status was made available to the feds.

The way U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents identify criminal illegal aliens is through a program called “Secure Communities.” With the program, local law enforcement is encouraged to submit fingerprints of those arrested to be run through the Department Of Homeland Security’s database. If identified, Agents will send a request for the prisoner to be held for up to 48 hours so deportation proceedings can be initiated. Santa Clara County disregards these requests.

In this case, the Secure Communities program wouldn’t have worked because Chavez had no prints on record; however, he was unable to establish legal residency. ICE bolsters the program by reviewing jail intake records and interviewing inmates. Agents could have easily determined he was in the country illegally. Unfortunately, Santa Clara County bans federal agents from contact with inmates without a warrant.

This tragedy could have been averted if there was any cooperation between the county and the feds. If agents were allowed access to Chavez, an interview would have revealed his illegal status. That, along with his arresting offenses, would have allowed him to be taken into federal custody and processed for deportation. He would not have been free to kill his wife.

County Supervisor Dave Cortese tried to pass blame from the uncooperative county policy and onto the legal system itself. He noted that Chavez was charged with serious crimes but that the district attorney did not request a higher bail.

“If (the DA) wants to be tougher on felons, he should do that. But don’t deflect attention to undocumented people,” said Cortese.

Cortese was unmoved by the killing and skeptical of the public-safety benefit of complying with the Safe Communities program. He said cases like Chavez’s represent only a small fraction of violent offenders in jail. Most inmates are U.S. citizens that wouldn’t be caught in the wide net cast by ICE, he added.

What a disgusting and callous attitude from an elected official. Here’s at least one public-safety benefit from detaining illegal aliens: a mother would still be alive and her children wouldn’t have been rendered, for all intents and purposes, orphans. How is protecting the rights of people who are in this country illegally more important than lives of the public at large?

Illegal aliens shouldn’t have rights beyond basic human rights anyways. They are not citizens. They are not legal residents. They should not be free to rob, rape and murder. I realize that Chavez’s wife was more than likely also undocumented, but it doesn’t mean he should have been given the means to slaughter her.

There are thousands of crimes committed by people who shouldn’t be in this country every year. Many of these crimes are violent and deadly and often perpetrated by people who have prior arrests. The policies of Santa Clara County, and other “safe haven” locales, put the public at risk. Human life is worth a little compliance and cooperation.

Wife Of Fort Hood Survivor: DOD ‘Slapping Victims With Gag Orders’, Telling Families Not To Talk To Press

Wife Of Fort Hood Survivor Claims Defense Department Is ‘Slapping Victims With Gag Orders’, Telling Family Members Not To Talk To Press – The Blaze

Autumn Manning, wife of Fort Hood survivor Army Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, is claiming that the U.S. Department of Defense is “slapping victims with gag orders” and telling family members not to talk to the press following testimony in the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan.

This prevents survivors from talking about “denial of benefits,” which is still happening after the Obama administration decided to classify the shooting as “workplace violence.” Because of the designation, Fort Hood survivors have been denied combat-related benefits.

Manning later clarified that the DOD’s gag order only applied to witnesses, though she also claims family members were told not to talk to the press.

“[I] will say what I want [to] who I want,” a defiant Manning wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

“I am not in military [and] still have my 1st amendment rights [thank you] very much,” she wrote in another tweet.

Conservative radio host Dana Loesch has been leading the charge on this story. She provides the screengrabs of Manning’s tweets:

Wife Of IRS Commissioner Was Part Of OFA Occupy DC, Protested Against IRS Targeted Groups And Individuals

Wife Of IRS Commissioner Shulman Was Part Of OFA Occupy DC And Protested/Tweeted Against IRS Targeted Groups/Individuals – Weasel Zippers

.

.
Remember Douglas Shulman, the former IRS commissioner, who was on the job when the targeting of conservatives began? The man who according to White House records of public visits, may have visited the White House at least 157 times? The man who during questioning admitted to visiting at least 118 times? The man who when questioned about why he visited so much, flippantly mentioned the Easter Egg Roll with his kids?

Shulman, who Democrats have been fond of saying was a Bush appointee, was, however, a DNC donor.

Perhaps even more instructive is the activity of Shulman’s wife, Susan L. Anderson. We previously reported that she was working for a liberal organization, Public Campaign, a group that was supposedly about campaign finance reform.

Turns out, she also was working for Organizing For America, the Obama political arm. OFA, of course, didn’t have to suffer IRS targeting, when it became an “independent” (cough-cough) organization (while still promoting Barack Obama), and applied for its exempt status.

.

.
She also tweeted, attacking Romney and raising the Harry Reid questioning of Romney’s taxes. Makes one wonder again about the “source” of Reid’s so-called information. When her husband was questioned during hearings, he claimed not to know how Reid came by any such information.

.

.
She tweeted notably against Karl Rove and his Crossroads group, urging her Twitter followers to protest them:

.

.
Crossroads has claimed that the IRS targeted them and leaked private information on their application:

“We filed for a 501(c)(4) status – and three years later, that process has not ended for us,” Rove tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview.

He said the group’s application may well be suspended by now, since it was among nine conservative organizations whose information was leaked to ProPublica, the liberal investigative website.

The groups’ applications had not yet been approved for nonprofit status. Releasing information on unapproved applicants is against IRS rules.

“This violated the law, and shortly thereafter we were told by the IRS that an investigation into the leaking of these documents was underway and that put our application into suspension for a while.”

He adds that, “we, frankly, aren’t surprised,” since Obama made a “thinly-veiled reference” to conservative groups like Crossroads in a 2010 speech as “a threat to democracy.”

Protesting with Wisconsin union:

.

.
Protesting with Occupy DC:

.

.
Anderson even tweeted a hit piece by Media Matters, which referred to complaints about the IRS targeting of Frank VanderSloot, a Romney donor, as “boohooing”. VanderSloot was singled out as “evil” when the Obama campaign put his name and the name of seven other Romney donors on a website, degrading them and their actions as possibly “questionable”. After that, VanderSloot suddenly found himself under investigation by multiple government entities.

.

.
She may have had her own visits to the White House and with the President, although obviously “Susan Anderson” is perhaps not an uncommon name:

.

Among the 105 twitter accounts Anderson follows, she follows every typical progressive media/cause account, including Pro Publica, the group to whom the IRS is accused of having leaked private information about Crossroads. She also coincidentally follows all three of the liberal media we wrote about having a private meeting at the White House, and Nick Confessore, a political reporter for the NY Times, who wrote more favorable pieces essentially blaming the IRS troubles on “confusion” in the Cincinnati office and most recently, attacking the victims of the targeting, claiming they were involved in political activity (which, under the IRS guidelines, is allowed, to a degree).
