Senator Elizabeth Warren is very troubled by Obama taking $400,000 for a Wall Street speech. That’s more than a little hypocritical since she accepts donations from Wall Street herself.
The blue collar champion has taken hundreds of thousands from Wall Street.
Since she ran for Congress in 2011, she has collected more than $630,000 from individuals in the securities and investment industry, making it the sixth highest industry in political donations to her campaigns.
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.
