Elizabeth Warren used to bang on about super PACs. Oh, they were the route of all evil in politics. They had to go. Earlier in the campaign when a super PAC bought some ads for her in Iowa, her campaign denounced the effort.
Warren spokesman Chris Hayden told Politico last November the “campaign was not aware of this and asks that those involved immediately stop purchasing advertisements of any kind. Elizabeth Warren believes democracy is undermined by anonymous, dark-money attempts to influence voters—whether that influence is meant to help or hurt her candidacy.”
A super PAC is an allied political group that supports a race without, supposedly, officially coordinating with the campaign.
But that was when she thought she was riding high. Now, with her campaign on life support, she quietly is encouraging super PACs to donate to her operation.
Her pitch must have been convincing. She has a $9 million ad buy in California, Texas, Massachusetts, and all over Super Tuesday states. This is courtesy of a group called Persist PAC. They are spending $14 million altogether for Warren and they refuse to divulge their donors.
Charles Hurt of The Washington Times commented to Fox News on the matter: “This dark money that she and a lot of Democrats say are the problem, the root problem with politics today, the fact that they’re willing to pour this much money into her campaign says two things. One, is it says how terrified these big-money, establishment Democrats are of Bernie Sanders. And it also says how comfortable they are with someone like Elizabeth Warren sticking up for their interests and protecting the status quo for Democrats.”
So, when she can no longer afford her lofty principles, she chucks them like a live grenade and takes millions in cash from any source that will put it out for her.
Not a surprise coming from Liz Warren, and just another example of the inherent hypocrisy of the hard Left.
