Another 125 Foreign Nationals Illegally Giving to U.S. Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders

213f7618-2b84-4dda-816d-399e4d93c14aOnce again, a large number of Foreign Nationals are identified as illegally donating to Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. The status of these 125 individuals is admitted by the candidate’s chief fundraising committee Treasurer, Susan Jackson.

According to federal law, only U.S. citizens or legal residents are allowed to give money to U.S. candidates running for office. All others are strictly prohibited.

The revelation of foreign donors is included in a report filed on 31 March by the Bernie 2016 committee and signed off on by Jackson.

This is the second time the committee has been cited for this campaign finance violation. It admitted to receiving illegal donations from 106 foreign donors during 2015. |See: “Non-US Citizens Funnel Money into Sanders Campaign“|

In addition to the prohibited money, Bernie 2016 also printed a 4-page list of donor names whose contribution exceeded the $2700 for the Primary election. All of these donors have had their excessive contributions refunded.


REPLY TO FEC BY SUSAN JACKSON, BERNIE 2016 TREASURER

The Committee did not receive confirmation of citizenship or residence status and therefore issued refunds earlier this month to the following donors. These refunds will be reflected in the Committee’s forthcoming 2016 April Monthly FEC Report (03/01/2016 – 03/31/2016).
