We all know how little Congressional ethics laws mean to Democrats. They proved how easily can go around the law to get what they want, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is just another example of that.
Warren had the decency to criticize Trump’s pick for head of HHS, Georgia Rep. Tom Price, about purchases made by the manager of his stock portfolio, while hiding the fact that she was given a $1.3 million line of credit from her bank, reports Young Conservatives.
“I’m just asking: Did you buy the stock, and then did you introduce a bill that would be helpful to the companies you just bought stock in?” she asked Price at a hearing.
“The stock was bought by a direct… by a broker who was making those decisions. I wasn’t making those decisions,” he responded.
While shamelessly disobeying congressional ethics laws, Warren argued that financial disclosures are needed to ‘reveal potentially damaging information that may undermine fitness to serve’ and that nominees with ‘complex financial histories’ need to be ‘forthcoming and transparent.’
“Another example of this shady lady in action — she claims to fight for the downtrodden, but checks the box to claim minority status, takes zero-interest loans from Harvard to buy her mansion, says in 2012 that she doesn’t own stocks, only mutual funds, claims to be the ‘intellectual mother’ of the Occupy movement until it turns into a PR disaster — is anyone suprised by this latest?” Boston talk radio king Howie Carr said..
“Surely not Bernie Sanders, whom she refused to endorse!” Carr notes.
This revelation leaves Warren, who presents herself as a champion of the common people, vulnerable to charges of hypocrisy. Her own vulnerabilities, however, have never stopped her from casting stones at others.
