HYPOCRISY ALERT: Elizabeth Warren Shamelessly Says We Need to Get Money Out of Politics

By NTK Staff | 05.16.2017 @1:31pm

Warren's comments came less than a day after she tweeted out support for Hillary Clinton's 'dark money' group.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called for systemic change to how political campaigns in America are financed just a day after she tweeted support for a ‘dark money’ group.

“Money is already causing a deep rot in Washington, and that is why it is time for systemic change,” Warren said during the Center for American Progress 2017 Ideas Conference on Tuesday.

“We can start that change with the way that political campaigns are financed, and we can build on the foundation of many American cities and states that have established publicly funded elections – get the money out,” Warren said.

It’s rather brazen of Warren to publicly call for getting money out of politics less than 24 hours after Warren tweeted out her support for Hillary Clinton’s ‘dark money’ group.

Clinton’s “Onward Together” is listed as 501(c)(4) meaning that the group will not have to disclose its donors and can accept unlimited money from donors.

Warren’s support of “Onward Together” has already been flagged as hypocritical, but Warren’s mixed messaging on the issue will probably not endear her to progressive Democrats eager to get both money and Hillary Clinton out of politics.
