Bernie Criticizes Billionaires for Trying to Buy Election, With Self-Funding Polis Standing Nearby

Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) blasted “a corrupt campaign system which allows billionaires to buy elections” in Colorado on Wednesday, while standing next to a millionaire who is seeking to buy his way to victory in the Colorado gubernatorial election.

In video captured by the Republican group Colorado Rising Action, Sanders, who held a rally in Boulder, Colorado to support Democratic candidates there, blasted the current campaign finance system:

But, as Denverite and others pointed out, Sanders was standing next to, and campaigning for, a millionaire who is putting millions of dollars of his own wealth into the gubernatorial election: Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO).

“I say it today: That it is grotesquely immoral that in America today, we have three people, three wealthiest people who own more wealth than the bottom half of the American people,” Sanders said.

Maybe someone didn’t tell Sanders that Polis, one of the richest members of Congress, has pumped more than $20 million of his own money into his own campaign. Polis has been taken heat from members of his own party about the election “being for sale ” and criticized for his spending by his Republican foe, Walker Stapleton.

Republican Walker Stapleton has kept the gubernatorial race close, even though Polis is vastly outspending Stapleton on the race. Election Day is in 12 days.
