After a long list of essentials such as catering, travel, office supplies, etc. etc. you see his disbursements as of the end of 2005. The PAC gave $1000 each to the following:
Coleen Rowley for Congress (details)

Lampson for Congress
Sanders for Senate
Tim Walz for US Congress
Tinklenberg for Congress
Bernie Sanders is an "Independent" Rep. from Vermont who's running for Senate, with the help of other Democratic leaders. The word "Independent" is a bit misleading because in actual fact he is a self-described "democratic socialist". Here's a page attempting to spin that away. You see, Sanders isn't one of those Soviet-style socialists. In fact, he's quite in line with Al Franken's "midwest values".

I love when political morons try to make that lame attempt between making the leap from socialism to full blown communism. Hey guess what, Sanders has been elected, repeatedly, in these US of A. Something you don't like about that? Take it up with the voters of Vermont and go call them stupid, quite vocally I might add. Then see how well whatever speed bump you run in VT does.
