The Socialist Presidential Candidate Has Been the Biggest Spender on Consultants

WaPo reports:
By the end of March, the self-described democratic socialist senator from Vermont had spent nearly $166 million on his campaign — more than any other 2016 presidential contender, including rival Hillary Clinton. More than $91 million went to a small group of admakers and media buyers who produced a swarm of commercials and placed them on television, radio and online, according to a Washington Post analysis of Federal Election Commission reports.

While the vast majority of that money was passed along to television stations and websites to pay for the advertising, millions in fees were kept by the companies, The Post calculated.

There is a certain poetic justice in seeing confused lefties, who sent their hard earned $10 and $20 to Benire, experience Bernie flipping the cash over to high-paid  crony planners.
