Elizabeth Warren's Lobbyist Complication

October 27, 2011
"In her work building the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Elizabeth met with hundreds of people and organizations from across the country -- from community bankers to consumer groups to industry representatives -- in what was praised widely as unprecedented outreach," said Warren spokesman Kyle Sullivan. But Warren's close interaction with an industry lobbyist who once had ties to a company she has criticized illustrates the difficulty any politician faces in railing against big corporations and their lobbyists: The reality in D.C. is that lobbyists play a big role in governing, and in funding the campaigns those politicians run. Expect Warren's opponents to continue to hammer her whenever signs of hypocrisy emerge. "It's clear where Elizabeth stands and how hard she's worked when it comes to holding special interests and Wall Street accountable. It's an empty charge," Sullivan said.
