…now read some of the sick responses from his fans. Many blamed her for mass incarceration and the war on drugs:
@BernieSanders lets STOP all the lying about this woman…

@BernieSanders She's also one of the reasons America's prisons are packed to the brim.

@BernieSanders Yeah she had such a good heart, especially when it came to the drug war. Lock em all up, how compassionate! "Just say no"

@BernieSanders I am still M.A.D.D. about D.A.R.E.. What is your stance, Bernie?

And she’s responsible for AIDS, too?
@BernieSanders Tell that to Rock Hudson

@BernieSanders good heart? Tell that to the corpse of Rock Hudson.

@BernieSanders This was really unnecessary. They were both awful people and no reason to change history because they died.
