PoliWatch: James Bond Bets on Bernie Sanders Despite Hillary Clinton Spies Out to Destroy Him

Former Clinton Worker Attempts Media Ambush in Hopes to Topple Pro-Bernie Sanders' PAC

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - September 11, 2015) - Yesterday's article in The Center for Public Integrity, written by a journalist who was recently discovered to allegedly be a former worker for Hillary Clinton PAC, exposed James Bond actor Daniel Craig as a supporter for Senator Bernie Sanders' run for presidency, in addition to making a generous contribution to pro-Sanders PAC, formerly known as Ready for Bernie Sanders 2016.

"Beckel's article was half brilliance and half bulls***. A blunt way of me saying the story was half fact and half faux."

"Beckel's article was half brilliance and half bulls***. A blunt way of me saying the story was half fact and half faux," comments pro-Sanders PAC chief director Cary Lee Peterson, who the former-Clinton worker turned news reporter attacks with mentions of personal affairs, not related to Bernie Sanders or James Bond. Peterson continues by remarking, "The kid [Michael Beckel] called my office two or three times a day for three months until I finally took his call. I appreciate his persistence and am glad that he was able to put together a hot story to get Bernie Sanders more media exposure. I just told him to stick with Bernie Sanders topics and less talk about where I used to work, when I got a traffic ticket, or who I was dating ten years ago."

Cary Peterson, a registered lobbyist with U.S. Senate and House, formed the pro-Sanders PAC in February and was acknowledged for it on Bernie Sanders' Senate newsroom page, mentioning an article published by Vermont Business Magazine, and again in early April when the PAC's publicist arranged a pro-Bernie Sanders of President billboard ad display in New York Time Square, as reported by New York Daily News.

Peterson further mentions his pity for Beckel's foul antics and poor journalism ethics to mention his personal family issues in an article that was supposed to be about a presidential election candidate and a political action committee. Whereas, Peterson congratulates him for the success on his news article and help getting Bernie Sanders more media coverage.

Americans Socially United became the official PAC name after Bernie Sanders announced his presidential candidacy on April 30. The PAC formerly known as Ready for Bernie Sanders 2016 has established a massive social media network (e.g. #BETONBERNIE) that is larger than Bernie 2016's own social media pages to the point of where it's allured several public figures such as Daniel Craig, who have maxed out their donation ability of $2700 with Bernie 2016 and want to give more support towards his presidential campaign through alternative sources that are pro-Sanders.

"How ironic -- Clinton spies and James Bond all in the same article. I'm starting to feel special. Sounds like a nice plot for a new James Bond flick. Hopefully I make the cast."

"I'm a fan of James Bond and was very honored to have the PAC receive his donation," says Peterson. When asked about the PAC's late filings with Federal Election Commission pro-Sanders PAC chief director Peterson states, "We're new at this and had some technical difficulties with FEC software and formatting our records. We've been fortunate enough to get grace and support from FEC to get this completed and definitely understand their system now to avoid any delays with upcoming filing deadlines." Peterson ends his comments by saying, "I'm pleased to see there are Clinton spies out there aiming to sabotage our Fireman [nickname he gives to Bernie Sanders]. It only shows that we're making progress and they're getting scared. Do I see a fire on the hill?" Peterson chuckles. "How ironic -- Clinton spies and James Bond all in the same article. I'm starting to feel special. Sounds like a nice plot for a new James Bond flick. Hopefully I make the cast."

Peterson says that the PAC has been getting more attention from Hollywood supporters and he encourages them to support Americans Socially United as non-corporate PAC contributions will be needed to finance the rocky road to the Primary Elections and getting Bernie Sanders on the ballot in every state.
