Jane Sanders and Burlington College Explained

June 29, 2017

Last week, VTDigger reported that Jane Sanders, the wife of Sen. Bernie Sanders, has hired attorneys to represent her in a Justice Department probe of a land deal she orchestrated as president of Burlington College. Records obtained by VTDigger in April confirmed that the investigation was taking place.

This week's podcast features two stories about Sanders’ leadership at the school. Morgan True talks about the land deal that has brought federal investigators to the now-defunct college's campus. Plus, Jasper Craven breaks down an arrangement Sanders made with a woodworking school run by her daughter that has raised questions in recent months.
