Near the end of her new autobiography, “A Fighting Chance,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren gives readers a glimpse into her extensive knowledge of guns.
As the chapter about her Senate run against then-Sen. Scott Brown, the Massachusetts Democrat complains about losing weight due to the harried schedule. Her solution? A bobby pin to hold her pants up.
“I started hitching them in back with a big safety pin,” the gun-control advocate writes on page 257. “Every day brought lots of picture taking, and many times, as we’d line up to smile for the camera with our arms looped behind each other’s backs, I’d feel someone’s hand hit the thick bulge. I wondered if anyone speculated whether I was wearing a holster or carrying a wad of money back there.”
It’s doubtful, but Massachusetts is full of surprises.
