ARTICLE CALLED FEEL THE FRAUD, YOU JUDGE AND DECIDE
The Sanders campaign has been engaging in an artful smear of Hillary Clinton, using Elizabeth Warren to do their dirty work.
Hillary Corrects the Record on the Bankruptcy Vote: PART A
CLINTON: When I got to the Senate in 2001, one of the first big votes there was on a version of the bankruptcy bill and I was deluged by women’s groups and children’s advocates groups to do everything I could to make sure that child support and women’s precarious financial situation in case of divorce or not being able to get the kind of funding they needed from a partner or a spouse in bankruptcy would not be endangered. And it was. The current — that bill was making it a very low priority. So I did go to work on behalf of all these women’s groups and children’s groups because they needed a champion. And I got that bill changed. And in return, it had nothing to do with any money whatsoever — and I resent deeply any effort by the Sanders campaign to so imply. It had to do with trying to get a deal that would protect women.
And so then three years later, part of Senator Warren said, you played. You didn’t play the whole thing, because we’ve been allies. I faced a tough decision and I stood up for women and children.
June 17, 2015: 9 people were killed by Dylann Roof at the historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina.
Senator Sanders voted for the Charleston loophole:
“You know, there was a loophole, my opponent voted for it, Senator Sanders, that at the end of three days, business days, you get that gun whether they have finished the background check or not. The killer in Charleston who brought that gun, if they had just spent a little more time, it would’ve been discovered, he should not have been able to buy the gun, because he had a federal record.” ~Hillary Rodham Clinton
Clinton’s statement was giving the elusive Geppetto Checkmark for being 100% accurate:
While Sanders did not specifically vote for a three-day period, he did vote for an even shorter one-day window. As a result of the amendment he supported in the House, the seven-day window was erased by the instant background system and the time allowed for extensive background checks that emerged from House-Senate negotiations was just three days.
Then Sanders ended up voting against requiring any background checks at all.FOLLOW THE LINKS TO VIEW ENTIRE ARTICLE
