While Bernie is doing the right thing in DC, the ever pathetic Skip Vallee is trying to grab a little attention by harassing him about his wife’s severance pay from Burlington College.
I think referring to Skip Vallee as Bernie’s “nemesis” is pretty wide of the mark. He’s more of a persistent oily carbuncle.
Mr. Vallee apparently doesn’t think women count as individuals. He repeatedly calls on Bernie to return his wife’s severance pay (which would pale by comparison to that of any of Vallee’s own high rolling friends).
It isn’t Bernie’s money to begin with. If Mr. Vallee had been paying any attention, he would have observed that the two Sanders’ maintain very separate careers (and more than likely) finances.
All Mr. Vallee has succeeded in doing here is demonstrating what a petty and chauvinistic fossil he is.
If Mr. Vallee wants to help Burlington College, why doesn’t he do so himself?
