Elizabeth Warren in the pocket of Wall Street, Scott Brown say it ain't so!

Democrats keep telling me Republicans are in the pocket of Wall Street. Few Democrats say this more than Elizabeth Warren, particularly when complaining about her opponent Scott Brown.

Look at the wording of your own link because it's rife with innuendo and deception: "may", "we are waiting", "indirectly", etc.

And the intro paragraph was no better about implying the worst without bothering to use facts: "guess whose hand", "tell me it isn't true" (OK, I will tell you that jello speculation is a very jiggley foundation on which to build a solid case), "could it be", etc.

To me this looks like flung mud; meant to see what sticks in soiling a candidate without much care taken to use proven facts.

"soiling a candidate without much care taken to use proven facts."

Exactly! One can hope people reading the 'piece' investigate further.

So all Scott needs to do to be as pristine as Elizabeth is to set up a front company to take those Wall Street funds? Wow.

Here is a partial list of donors to the DSCC (the group helping to fund Elizabeth Warren):

Warren apparently doesn't have a super PAC funding her election campaign. BTW, am mighty curious. Did you know that Karl Rove's super PAC is behind the latest mud slinging ad campaign? http://articles.businessinsider.com/2011-12-09/politics/30497193_1_elizabeth-warren-tarp-bailout-30-second-spot

Oh the irony. Rove is a world class ideologue and political insider with less scruples and morals than a drug-hustling junkie. And he's lambasting Warren for taking money from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (which at least isn't hiding its identity behind opaque and disingenuous labels like "American Crossroads").

I smell something nasty........

I guess if Brown were claiming not to be taking funds from big corporate donors, it'd be interesting reading. However, Warren IS making that claim WHILE taking cash from BIG corporations laundered by a Washington D.C. pac.

I distinguish the honesty of Brown from the dishonesty of Warren. If she doesn't want corporate money, she should stop taking it, laundered or not.

First of all, Warren isn't taking cash from big corporate donors. She's taking it from the DSCC. If she doesn't know who has made contributions directly on her behalf, it's a bit less egregious, don't you think? She wouldn't know who she's beholden to.

Unfortunately, thanks to the Citizens United debacle, we are probably going to see one of several scenarios. Candidates who are independently wealthy fund their own campaigns. Candidates who are not independently wealthy take the high road but see their names dragged through the mud by their better funded opponents and cannot use paid media to counteract claims. Or they do as Elizabeth Warren is doing and accept money from a PAC (which as I pointed out earlier, isn't concealing its funding or its backing).

So Brown has his own war chest. http://www.opensecrets.org/politicians/summary.php?cid=N00031174 AND he has Rove's super PAC carrying water for him as well. I'm guessing that Brown isn't saying much about either but if I'm wrong, by all means, show us how "honest" he is.

Edited to add that I see no particular virtue in the "honesty" argument.

Living 20 miles from the border with MA, this is a race of great interest.

The DNC funding does not bother me, so long as she does not take anything directly from WS and insurers. One thing for certain, the WS crowd wants her nowhere near the US Senate, and most especially down the road, the presidency (I happen to think she will be a wonderful prez.)
