Bernie Sanders’ Wife
March 8, 2012 by staff
Bernie Sanders’ Wife, Bernard “Bernie” Sanders (born September 8, 1941) is the junior United States Senator from Vermont. He previously represented Vermont’s at-large district in the United States House of Representatives. Sanders also served as mayor of Burlington, Vermont.
Sanders is a self-described democratic socialist, and has praised European social democracy (though he has also criticized its contemporary “Third Way” departure). He is the first person elected to the U.S. Senate to identify as a socialist. Sanders caucuses with the Democratic Party and is counted as a Democrat for the purposes of committee assignments, but because he does not belong to a formal political party, he appears as an independent on the ballot. He was also the only independent member of the House during much of his service there.
Sanders is married to Jane O’Meara, former president of Burlington College, and has one son, Levi Sanders, from a previous marriage. His brother, Larry Sanders, is a Green Party District Councillor for Oxford East in Oxfordshire, England.
Sanders is one of two sitting U.S. Senators who went to James Madison High School in Brooklyn (the other being Chuck Schumer). Before Sanders became a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, his roommate was Richard I. Sugarman, a professor at the University of Vermont. Coincidentally, the only other Independent currently serving in the U.S. Senate, Joe Lieberman (I-CT) shared a suite with Professor Sugarman when the two attended Yale University in the 1960s.
For the Friday segment “Brunch with Bernie” of the Thom Hartmann radio program, Hartmann interviews Sanders and the senator answers listeners’ calls.
Sanders also starred in his own weekly five-minute show, “Senator Sanders Unfiltered,” hosted at Sandersunfiltered.com. The site has not been updated since early 2010.
