Elizabeth Warren needs heap more wampum

Font Size:

To the victor go the spoils. Unless she’s spent ’em already, and then some.

According to the Boston Globe, Warren is still dancing to make it rain cash:

Elizabeth Warren raised a whopping $42 million for her Senate race — more than any other congressional candidate in the country. Yet the noted scholar on the root causes of debt and bankruptcy made a surprising admission on Wednesday: she needs a little help paying her bills.

In an e-mail to supporters, the senator-elect from Massachusetts revealed that her campaign is in debt and asked for donations to help her out of the hole. Though she did not disclose the sum in her e-mail, a campaign official said Warren owes $400,000…

“Thousands more volunteers showed up — and that meant even more last-minute coffee and pizza,” Warren wrote, listing only that food and that beverage as the cause of the shortfall.

That’s a lot of coffee and pizza. No wonder Warren’s fans want Papa John’s to start operating at a loss.

But here’s the capper:

Warren is also considered a preeminent scholar on why families and businesses go broke. Her books include “All Your Worth,” a guide to managing household finances, and “As We Forgive Our Debtors,” a study of the American middle class.

And yet here she is: Stands With A Debt.
