Collusion from Down Under

So it turns out there was foreign collusion in the 2016 election.

But it was Collusion from Down Under.

The Federal Election Commission has fined the Bernie Sanders 2016 campaign $14,500 for colluding with the Australian Labor Party.

Whoopsie!

Throw another socialist on the barbie, mate!

From the Daily Caller:

“The ALP contacted the Sanders campaign according to the FEC and asked permission to allow Australian nationals to be inserted into the campaign as volunteers. The Sanders campaign accepted the ALP’s request, despite knowing the ALP would be paying Australians a daily stipend in addition to covering the cost of their flights to the United States.

“While volunteering with the Sanders campaign, the Australians engaged in political activities ‘including encouraging voter attendance at campaign events, recruiting volunteers, canvassing with volunteers, and planning events,’ according to the FEC.

“The Sanders campaign ‘treated the ALP delegates no differently from any other campaign out-of-town volunteers and was aware that they were receiving a stipend from the ALP,’ the FEC added.

“The ALP spent $16,140 for the Australians’ flights to the United States and $8,282 for their daily stipends. The FEC determined that amounted to a $24,422 ‘prohibited in-kind foreign contribution’ the Sanders campaign accepted from the ALP.

Irony.

It can be so damn ironic.
