Democrats Starting To Run Away From Occupy Wall Street
Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is refusing to sign a petition in favor of Occupy Harvard, which is interesting given that Warren once described herself as the “intellectual foundation” for the movement.
U.S. Senate hopeful and Harvard Law prof Elizabeth Warren, who has claimed she laid the “intellectual foundation” for the Occupy Wall Street movement, is jilting the anti-corporate proteges in her own Ivy League yard, refusing to sign a petition in support of Occupy Harvard.
Warren, who declined to speak to the Herald, is focused on her campaign, said spokesman Kyle Sullivan.
“Elizabeth hasn’t signed the petition, but she’s been standing up to Wall Street and the big banks for years and that’s what she’ll do in the Senate,” said Sullivan in a statement. “People are frustrated and protesting for change, Elizabeth understands that.”
Can you blame Warren for not wanting to sign on to support a movement more famous for public defecation and rape than any sort of a political message?
I wouldn’t want to be associated with the occupiers either.Tags: election 2012, elizabeth warren, massachusetts, occupy wall street
