    Now that Sanders has endorse the anti-Christess, it looks like he may have received a pay out and bought a lavish home that is worth over half a million dollars, his third home overall.

    Not to bad for a socialist that despises capitalism.

    It's good to know those $27 donations didn't go to waste.

    Your ridiculous smear should be ignored; the house seems to have been brought from the proceeds of a sale of another property that Bernie's wife inherited from her family.http://blog.sfgate.com/ontheblock/2016/08/10/check-out-bernie-sanders-rustic-new-lakefront-summer-home/#photo-770356

    The place looks nice, though hardly ostentatious Good for Bernie..

    Right wingers will, of course, make false claims and smears; it is what they do.

    Yeah, good for Bernie. He's living the American socialist dream.

    So how's your grasp of sarcasm?

    Democratic socialist nations do not prevent people from owing their own homes. Or even three of them.

    He's actually one of the least affluent Senators by total worth.

    It seems to be an automatic reflex from right wingers; you, of course, know that campaign contributions cannot be used for purposes like buying a personal home for the candidate. But you make that charge anyway, knowing it to be untrue for purely political reasons. It's shameful but right wingers have little shame in such matters.

    So how was that money obtained that bought the land that Bernie used to buy his million dollar house?

    More to the point, perhaps Hillary will get elected and force him to sell his house for a more modest one so that he can pay his fair share to the poor folk.

    All kidding aside, I have two (serious) questions for you:

    1) Did you think Bernie had any chance of getting the nomination?

    2) You sent a donation to his campaign, so where is that money now and how will it be used?

    1) If he had won the most delegates, he would have gotten the nomination;

    2) I'm not sure if he has any money left on hand, but if he does it will have to go to campaign expenses.

    Do you even bother to read other people's post or even lightly peruse the links they provide? The answer to your first question is in both.

    I'm sure Bernie will continue to pay whatever taxes he legally owes; unlike a certain Presidential candidate, he has made public his tax returns.

    I just hope Bernie enjoys his villa summer home on the lake. It's good to be king.

    He really deserves it after having to kiss Hillary's dairy air.

    1) Yes, but in order to get the most delegates he would need most of the super delegates. Did you believe that could happen?

    2) I'm assuming most of that money was spent on the campaign. So perhaps the rest of it will need to go towards paying for expenses as yet unpaid.

    My initial two questions are somewhat related, so my 3rd question is:

    3) If you had known or suspected the nomination was rigged so that Hillary would get the nomination, would you have sent a donation to Bernie's campaign?

    It doesn't matter how well Bernie does because the fix is in for Hillary. Bernie is a loyal party man, so I doubt he will go the third party candidate route... he has a lot more to gain (politically) by staying in the game, and then encouraging his followers to vote for Clinton when she becomes the nominee.

    Do you think this was just a lucky guess?

    The nomination was not "rigged", so your 3rd question is irrelevant.

    IF Bernie had won the most pledged delegates, I believe sufficient numbers of the superdelegates would have switched to gave him the nomination. Hillary had an overwhelming advantage in superdelegates in 2008, but most abandoned her after Obama got the most delegates.

    I don't have the financial details of his campaign at this time, but it would be unsurprising if it ran up some debts that still must be paid.
