Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign isn’t off to the best start.
While it’s likely the Democrat Socialist from Vermont will perform exceedingly well down the line in the primaries, he’ll have to deal with an FEC violation right now.
It appears the Bernie campaign broke federal law by employing an illegal immigrant.
How does this go unreported by the mainstream media?
Oh, that’s right…
From Free Beacon:
The Bernie Sanders presidential campaign is violating federal election law by employing foreign nationals in advisory campaign positions, according to a newly filed complaint to the Federal Election Commission obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon.
The complaint points to the employment of three individuals, including Maria Belén Sisa, an illegal immigrant from Argentina who is in the United States under the protections of DACA and has been named deputy national press secretary for Bernie 2020. Sisa, who collected a salary from the Bernie 2016 campaign and also made financial contributions to it, recently made headlines when she questioned whether American Jews, including her own boss Sanders, were loyal to the United States.
Both the work for the campaign and contributions are “direct and serious violations” of federal election law, the complaint argues.
Sanders doesn’t want Hillary Clinton’s help.
The View‘s Meghan McCain asked Sanders, “We’re hearing about a lot of Democratic candidates who are meeting with Hillary Clinton for advice like people like Amy Klobuchar — do you think you’ll do the same?“
Bernie said, “I suspect not…no, she has not called me. Look, we have fundamental differences.“
“Hillary… she has not called me,”

Speaking from a stage in South Carolina on MLK Day, Sanders said the unthinkable about President Trump.

Sanders: “It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we now have a President of the United States who is a racist.“
Based on what?
Sanders recently went after Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY).
Cheney, of course, is the daughter of former Vice President
Christian Bale Dick Cheney.
Liz wasn’t scared, though.
She fired back guns blazing.
Rep. Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick Cheney, yesterday attacked "the fraud of socialism." Really? I wasn't aware that it was "socialism" that lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and got us into a horrific war that we should never have started.

Yes, @SenSanders, son of Eli Sanders, socialism is a fraud. It steals power from the people & gives it to the government, crushes human freedom & initiative & devastates economies (ask the Venezuelans). BTW – Your Dick Cheney history is as defective as your economic policy. 🇺🇸 https://t.co/8xjOVE3Tpu

Sanders was once kicked off of a hippie commune for refusing to work. So, there’s something for Democrats to consider.
From Free Beacon:
Bernie Sanders was asked to leave a hippie commune in 1971 for “sitting around and talking” about politics instead of working, according to a forthcoming book.
We Are As Gods by Kate Daloz, scheduled for release April 26, chronicles the rise and fall of the Myrtle Hill Farm in northeast Vermont. Daloz, a Brooklyn writer, was in a special position to write a history of Myrtle Hill: she was raised near the commune in a geodesic dome residence with an outhouse called the Richard M. Nixon Memorial Hall. Her parents were close acquaintances of the commune residents, who offered them tips about wilderness living.
