So Jeffrey Sachs, an adviser to Sanders' campaign, scored him an invitation to an obscure Vatican

conference that he (Sachs) was attending.

New Yorkers won't be impressed AT ALL.

1. Is that the Hillary campaign spin?

 

I'm assuming you would probably know due to your username and the time that you joined. Is that the case?

Do they pay well for these types of posts?

7. I assume you won't be deterred by the truth but I'll try (again and again and again. ..)

 

Jeffrey Sachs says he only helped Sorondo reach out to Bernie Sanders. It waa Sorondo's idea to invite Sanders.

 
The chancellor of the body, Monsignor Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, ...said that it was his idea to invite Sanders.  

Jeffrey Sachs, a Columbia University professor who is presenting at the event, said in a phone interview that he helped the Vatican reach out to Bernie Sanders in March, and he doesn’t know why Archer alleged that the Sanders campaign initiated the gig. “The academy sent the invitation, it’s pure and simple,” he said. “A lot of people in the Vatican respect him a lot. He is speaking in the same kind of moral themes that Pope Francis, and the social teachings of the Church, promote, which is a moral economy.” A representative who works with Sachs also passed along an official invitation from Sanchez Sorondo to Sanders dated on March 30.

10. Actually Sachs just became an advisor last week.

 

The conference was set up months ago.

Jesus, do you get paid for each and every bogus lie you try to push here in hopes that one my stick? I sure hope so!

19. That is how long he has been overstaing his political career in order to try to become President.

 

I was wondering how long this was going to take him out of the country.

18. 12am post?? Cool you're up late on a school night.

Yep - economic conference at the Vatican, or glitzy Hollywood pimp dinners in the Bay Area at $353K plate...

We'll have to see how the 2 play out.
