Day 3: Elizabeth Warren Solidifying Credentials for PhD in Wall Street Hypocrisy

Professor Warren continues to refuse the support of Wall Street via the Democrat Senate Committee

WASHINGTON – For the third consecutive day, American Crossroads called on Professor Elizabeth Warren to publicly reject support from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), which is using funds raised on Wall Street to directly help Warren’s campaign.

By collecting more than $40 million in contributions from Wall Street, the DSCC has received more campaign funds from Wall Street, the banking and financial services industries than any other industry including labor unions and trial lawyers.

Meanwhile, Professor Warren continues to openly take the committee’s support raised from Wall Street and allow the committee to use her name in fundraising pitches – not what one would except from a self-styled Wall Street reformer. 

“Far left Professor Warren keeps solidifying her bona fides for a PhD in hypocrisy by not publicly asking the Democratic Party to stop helping her campaign with Wall Street cash,” said American Crossroads President Steven Law.  “Professor Warren should prove her intellectual consistency and immediately call on the DSCC to stop supporting her campaign since most of their funds are raised on Wall Street.”
