Elizabeth Warren hit with ethics complaint, learns about it during debate

November 1, 2018

  Elizabeth Warren has been hit with an ethics complaint for allegedly fundraising off of her promise to vote against Brett Kavanaugh and she apparently first learned about it in embarrassing fashion during a debate.

  Elizabeth Warren actually does have an opponent–although not competition–in her bid to win reelection. His name is  Geoff Diehl and although he has been running for the Senate for two years now this race will most likely be called five minutes after the polls close. But anyway, Elizabeth Warren and  Geoff Diehl had their third and final debate the other day and to her apparent surprise Geoff Diehl mentioned her alleged fundraising violation.

  Here is more:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) claimed she was unaware of the ethics complaint against her during a U.S. Senate debate in Massachusetts Tuesday.

During the debate, Republican challenger Geoff Diehl pointed out Warren is alleged to have fundraised off Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings, asking for donations in exchange for her vote against the nominee.

“Senator Warren was fundraising illegally using the vote on Justice Kavanaugh, the confirmation vote, to try to raise money for her campaigns,” Diehl said.

Diehl was referencing a complaint sent Monday to the Senate Select Committee on Ethics. The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) sent the complaint to Sens. Johnny Isakson (R., Ga.) and Chris Coons (D., Del.), the respective committee chairman and vice chairman.

It alleges Warren fundraised based off her intended vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Court. The Senate prohibits “linking a promise of official action to a solicitation of campaign contributions.”

After some back and forth between the candidates, one of the moderators cut off Warren’s complaint about the president to return to the ethics complaint against her. “I would like to drill down on what Representative Diehl said. The fundraising while the vote was being taken on the Kavanaugh hearing – did you or did you not do that?”

“Actually, I don’t know,” she replied.

The audience gasped.

“Yes, there’s an ethics complaint that has been filed about a fundraising email,” one moderator replied.

“Then, then I will, I will check into it,” Warren said, “but I don’t know.”

  I am more than a little surprised the moderator followed up on this to be quite honest and normally you would think this would be an embarrassing moment for the Senator from Massachusetts but she has proven to have no shame when she lied about being a Native American all those years ago and then recently when she tried to defend it with disastrous results.

  Of course none of this will matter to the voters of Massachusetts because integrity and honesty are only an issue when your name is Donald Trump, other than that the end justifies the means.
