BURLINGTON, Vt. — Sen. Bernie Sanders' wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders, will face no criminal charges related to a controversial land deal at Burlington College.
Vermont's U.S. Attorney, Christina Nolan, has informed Sanders the investigation into alleged wrongdoing has concluded and no charges will be filed, a Sanders spokesman said Tuesday.
"Jane is grateful that the investigation has come to an end," said spokesman Jeff Weaver. "As she has said from the beginning she has done nothing wrong and Jane is pleased that the matter has now come to a conclusion."
Brady Toensing, a lawyer and vice chairman of Vermont's Republican Party, alleged Sanders overstated the college's fundraising when she signed a loan application for the purchase of 33 acres of lakefront property for the college.
