Lawyer's Revelations Add To Scrutiny Over Elizabeth Warren's Corporate Clients

U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren recently revealed at least some of her clients amid scrutiny over her legal work for corporations.
Warren says she did work for "a company that offered a plan to help save a bankrupt rural power cooperative."
Well, an attorney involved in that bankruptcy says, in fact, the opposite is true.

Two polls released Tuesday showed Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren in a close race.
Brown leads Warren, 48 percent to 45 percent, in a WBUR poll released Tuesday morning. A UMass survey released in the afternoon shows Warren with a 48 percent to 46 percent edge.
Thanks Libloather. BWT, Fauxahontas is toast.
Brown tours Framingham, picks up Whitman endorsement [former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman]
Warren says she did work for "a company that offered a plan to help save a bankrupt rural power cooperative." Well, an attorney involved in that bankruptcy says, in fact, the opposite is true.
Amazing stats considering Massachusetts is left of North Korea and Cuba...
This is the politicians and polls and media lying to the public.
If we take Warren at her word that she wasn’t practicing law it begs the question why so many companies would pay her hundreds of thousands of dollars to consult on legal matters. No doubt these plaintiffs and defendants had the financial resources to hire the best actively practicing attorneys and experts, assuming they didn’t already have them on staff.
The extremely lucrative Warren legal practice smells like a sham consulting gig designed to allow leftists to flow money into her pocket than it does a legitimate engagement to secure legal advice not available anywhere else. Very much like giving an unknown and unaccomplished Harvard Law grad a lucrative book contract upon graduation or giving the spouse of a nobody Illinois state legislator a high paid public relations job at a hospital or giving the unaccomplished wife of the governor of Arkansas a position with the most prestigious law firm in the state and a seat on the board of directors of Wal-Mart.
It is very interesting that the leftist advocates for the poor and downtrodden seem to always be able to find the easy money to fund lives of privilege while they condemn those who earned wealth through decades of hard work, perspiration, and great personal sacrifice.
Those might be the numbers, from among those who can pick up a phone, and talk to a pollster. Who’s leading in the walking-dead community? I understand they’re a big voting bloc.
yes, what you said.
Hillary had far more qualifications than these latest grafters. She was a staff member of the House Committee in charge of railroading Richard Nixon out of the White House.
That is high accomplishment.
Paleface Lizzy went ashore with the Marines at Iwo Jima.....except she didn’t.
Paleface Lizzy invented the cotton gin.....only......she didn’t.
Paleface Lizzy was the first person to break the sound barrier....but.....she didn’t.
I hate to say it, but Warren is telling the truth here. (I’m no fan of Warren’s). I was involved in this as an employee of the now (semi) defunct SWEPCO. Our plan would have rescued Cajun, and significantly lowered rates for Cajun’s customers. Layoffs would not necessarily have occured.
If anyone’s lying here, it’s Matt Farley.
