Socialist Bernie Sanders backed out of an interview with Seven Days Monday morning after the newspaper refused to accept conditions his staff attempted to set. Socialist Sanders would not comment on his wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, being investigated for fraud by federal prosecutors over her role leading the now-defunct Burlington college.
To their credit, Seven Days informed Socialist Sanders it does not allow politicians to set such restrictions in exchange for access.
When later contacted by Seven Days, for an interview, Socialist Bernie Sanders replied, “I don’t talk to gossip columnists,” the senator shot back. “I talk about issues.” Well unless those issues are an FBI investigation into his wife for fraud.
