Deadbeat Dad Bernie Sanders Never Paid Child Support! Sanders Let Vermont Taxpayers Feed And Clothe His Kid.
The Early Years Of Deadbeat Dad Bernie Sanders
Deadbeat dad Bernie Sanders bought a piece of property in Vermont in 1964. He settled there full-time in 1968. Sanders’ first child, Levi Sanders, was born a year later to his then-girlfriend, Susan Campbell Mott.
The elder Sanders worked as a carpenter and a writer after he graduated from college. However, he quickly found his true calling. He became a perpetual political candidate.
Sanders joined the socialist Liberty Union Party and began running for governor and senator of Vermont in the 1972 elections. He got 2% of the vote for governor, and 1% for senator.
Bernie also didn’t have to work very hard because he didn’t have much competition to get the Liberty Union nominations. Party members recall they “ran anybody and everybody they could find.”
Then he ran again for the Senate on the Liberty Union Party ticket in 1974, and won 4% of the vote, and again for governor two years later, winning 6% of the vote.
