Human rights advocate and former President Jimmy Carter revealed Monday evening that in last year's Democratic primary he opted to buck the establishment and vote for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). During a conversation between the two at Carter's Atlanta-based peace and human rights organization, The Carter Center, the subject of corporate money in politics and low voter turnout spurred a campaign-style riff from Sanders. "In many ways," he said, "Donald Trump did not win the election, the Democratic Party lost the election. We've got to revitalize the Democratic Party, make it a grassroots party...So we have got to get people involved," he continued. "And you do that by being honest about the real problems they face and come up with real solutions." At that point, the former president remarked to the audience, "Can y'all see why I voted for him?"
