I love the smell of desperation from a fourth place loser on a New Hampshire morning.
Elizabeth Warren’s only pathway to the White House lies in eliminating Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar. It’s a good bet that she helped trigger some of the Bernie hit pieces. And you have to wonder about the provenance of the Klobuchar horror stories which likely come from a Senate insider who’s been there for more than a few years and who finds her to be a threat.
That and desperate publicity stunts.
The best president money can’t buy – by Elizabeth Warren
When I first ran for the Senate, we had a contest to name our first t-shirt. By a big margin, the winning t-shirt said, “The Best Senator Money Can’t Buy.” I’ve tried to live by that every single day.
I understand that campaigns cost money — a lot of money — and I’m deeply grateful to everyone who steps up and invests in our campaign.
But we have a problem in this country: Money has too much influence on our political leaders.
I’ve already said that I will run my campaign differently — no Washington lobbyist money, no PAC money, no auditioning billionaires to run a super PAC for me, and no dark-money groups devoted to supporting this campaign.
Unless I actually get the nomination.
No more big money donors and special interests… starting now.
Warren also has received major backing from lawyers and law firms that represent Wall Street interests. $2.3 million in contributions have poured from the sector to her campaign’s coffers, the second most of any industry only behind those who are retired.
Individuals who work at law firms that are in her top 15 donors provide services to financial institutions and corporations that deal with bankruptcy, corporate restructuring, securities litigation, and white-collar crime.
Brown Rudnick LLP, an international law firm that focuses on high-stakes litigation with offices in New York, London, Boston, and Washington, D.C., has employees that have given nearly $70,000 to Warren’s campaigns, enough to put them in her top ten donors.
Question: If Warren is the only senate money can’t buy, does this make her the only dishonest politician in the race?
