Bernie 2016, the principal campaign committee of Bernie Sanders, is required to document all the monies involved in his campaign under federal election laws. An unprecedented (and under-reported) number of issues have been cited since Sanders first began his campaign fund raising.
Below is a list of my articles involving Sanders campaign finance issues dating back to its first reports to the Federal Election Committee in late 2015. Most are based on data from publicly accessible reports and findings at the FEC website.
Two items stand out repeatedly: illegal donations by foreign nationals and excessive contributions, also illegal.
Note that the FEC gives Bernie 2016 a deadline to fix the issues, so older articles pointing out campaign finance problems may have been resolved. I’ve tried to follow up with coverage on these as well.
A few informative articles related to campaign finance are also included here.
