Elizabeth Warren claimed to have provided the intellectual foundation for the Occupy movement, and of course, articulated one of the most pure redistributionist rationales which made her a hero of the Occupy movement.
But Warren has found a place she does not want Occupied, her employer Harvard University.
As reported by The Boston Herald:
U.S. Senate hopeful and Harvard Law prof Elizabeth Warren, who has claimed she laid the “intellectual foundation” for the Occupy Wall Street movement, is jilting the anti-corporate proteges in her own Ivy League yard, refusing to sign a petition in support of Occupy Harvard.
Warren, who declined to speak to the Herald, is focused on her campaign, said spokesman Kyle Sullivan.
“Elizabeth hasn’t signed the petition, but she’s been standing up to Wall Street and the big banks for years and that’s what she’ll do in the Senate,” said Sullivan in a statement. “People are frustrated and protesting for change, Elizabeth understands that.”
Warren is so focused on her campaign that she doesn’t have time to sign a petition?
She knows where her bread is buttered, and she doesn’t want to ruin her day job in case the Senate gig doesn’t work out.
