This article is not a criticism of Bernie for having a son out of wedlock. I was a single Mom in the 80s/90s and Love my son dearly. However, I never tried to rewrite my history by implying I had him while I was married.
Prior to his Presidential bid Bernie Sander allowed his bio to imply his son Levi was born to him and his first wife Deborah Shiling. This is NOT true. By allowing this lie to live for decades he was erasing the Mother of his child. Treating her as non-existent. Disposable. A despicable act of both cowardice and misogyny.
“All reports about Sanders have previously said that Levi was the result of Sanders’ first marriage, although the name of his first wife has never before been revealed.
In its biography, CNN says his first wife’s name is ‘unavailable publicly’ and lists Levi as a child of that marriage.” (note his bio on CNN was updated with the truth after publication of this Daily Mail article). http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3155396/Bernie-Sanders-1960s-love-life-revealed-wife-woman-son-sugar-shack-home-lived-revolutionary.html
Susan Campbell Mott is Levi’s mother…
Bernie Sanders is not a warm caring man, he is a cold calculating politician. Don’t ever forget that! This is ALL about him. He is not for women or he would NOT have continued until caught by the Daily Mail to erase from history Susan Campbell Mott the mother of his ONLY biological child.
