Must be Senate Dems doing it, or she’d name names.

Elizabeth Warren Video - Lashes out at reporters over Native American Controversy

Oh, thaaaaaatttttt historically underrepresented group. Not the one you were thinking of.

Via CNN:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren told CNN she has been treated differently as a woman in the clubby upper chamber — echoing the general sentiments of her colleague Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who wrote about sexism in the Senate in a recent book.

During a wide-ranging interview on the Colorado campaign trail—where she was stumping for endangered incumbent Sen. Mark Udall—CNN asked Warren whether she had experienced any different treatment as a woman. “Yes,” she said. Would she elaborate? “Nope.” But was it surprising? “Not really, I wish it were,” she told CNN. “But it’s hard to change these big, male dominated institutions. What I am very happy about is that there are now enough women in the United States Senate to bring change to that place and I think that’s just powerfully important.” There are now 20 women in the senate.

Warren added: “You know, others have said it before me. If you don’t have a seat at the table, you’re probably on the menu.” Warren’s comments did make one clear case: women will be treated as equals when there continue to be more women in the Senate.
