Comrade Sanders has inserted himself into Portland’s elections, formally endorsing Sarah “I am antifa” Iannarone for Mayor and City Council-person-of-nondescript-gender Chloe Eudaly.
Bernie Sanders is the latest figure endorsing Portland mayoral candidate Sarah Iannarone.
Sanders’ endorsement late Thursday endorsement came the same day Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty announced her backing of incumbent Ted Wheeler’s challenger.
The former presidential hopeful and current U.S. senator from Vermont also endorsed Chloe Eudaly in her Portland City Commissioner race against challenger Mingus Mapps in a list of endorsements for “progressive, down-ballot candidates.”
“In every corner of the country, strong progressives are running at the state and local level to represent our movement and lead the fight to transform this country. These races are incredibly important — that’s why I am endorsing progressive, down-ballot candidates across the country. If you can, I hope you’ll cast your ballot for them when you vote,” Sanders’ statement said.
Iannarone released this official statement:
Thank you, Senator Sanders. Bernie sees a progressive running to challenge the status quo, and he wants to help. I am proud to receive his endorsement. I’m excited to work on behalf of the 99% to hold big corporations accountable and to fight for health care for all Portlanders and everyone across the country.
Iannarone, you may recall, has been criticized and mocked for her apparent support of murderous communist dictators.
In fact, her apparent 2016 ballot was rehashed, and you can see she wrote in Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Ho Chi Min, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, along with extremist black panther and convicted murderer Assata Shakur and Angela Davis, a Shakur sympathizer:

She’s apparently not ashamed of this, as she hasn’t deleted the tweet, despite renewed interest in the post (we’ve screen capped it in case she deletes it).
Here’s a screengrab of the tweet is she does.
