Jesus, this is pathetic stuff:
“How did someone who made a six figure salary in public office for 30 years and then wrote a best selling book accrue a net worth substantially lower than the typical United States senator, a hard-hitting journalistic investigation.” And yet this story contains no information at all of the most important thing to know about a candidate, his compliance with email server management best practices.
And even if Bernie was unusually wealthy for a U.S. Senator, it would still be meaningless. “How can you support progressive policies when you own a nice house” is precisely the kind of transparently idiotic argument that people like Maureen Dowd think is smart, which of course helps to explain why we are where we are.
