Bernie Sanders’ campaign reportedly considered demanding a private jet staffed and funded by the DNC in return for the Vermont senator’s support of Hillary Clinton.
The Sanders campaign was wise not to run the idea by Garry Kasparov:
I'm the wrong person to come to for sympathy for a Socialist candidate asking the DNC for a private jet.
