Congressional ethics laws don’t mean much to Democrats.
They’ll say they do, but who are we kidding?
Libs are always trying to skirt the law, one way or another.
Take Massachusetts Sen.
Pocahontas Elizabeth Warren, for example.
Warren grilled President Trump’s pick for head of HHS, Georgia Rep. Tom Price, about purchases made by the manager of his stock portfolio, yet she failed to reveal she was given a $1.3 million line of credit from her bank.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has failed to disclose a $1.3 million line of credit provided to her by Bank of America, the Washington Free Beacon reports:
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.’ Warren, meanwhile, continues to skirt congressional ethics laws by failing to include a $1.3 million line of credit against her Cambridge, Massachusetts, home on financial disclosure forms.
“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 tells Breitbart News.
“Surely not Bernie Sanders, whom she refused to endorse!” Carr notes.
The revelation of the existence of this previously undisclosed line of credit leaves Warren, who presents herself as a champion of the common people, vulnerable to charges of hypocrisy.
Warren aggressively criticized Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on January 18 to become Secretary of Health and Human Services over the purchase of $2,700 in the stock of one company by the manager of his stock portfolio.
This is how I’d imagine Warren would respond if ever questioned about ethics (of any kind)…
