The far left base of the Democratic party doesn’t want them to accept donations from the fossil fuels industry but they’re doing it anyway. Elizabeth Warren was asked about this at a recent press event and dodged the question, naturally.
The Daily Caller reports:
WARREN DODGES QUESTION WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE DNC’S EMBRACE OF FOSSIL FUEL DONATIONS
While delivering a speech at the National Press Club, Warren on Tuesday unveiled legislation that would ban members from the White House and Congress from owning individual stock — a move she claims will reduce conflict between investment and lawmakers. However, during the question-and-answer session, the progressive senator did not appear prepared to directly address a controversy that has been plaguing the DNC in recent days.
When asked whether she agreed with DNC Chairman Tom Perez’s decision to once again allow fossil fuel-related PAC donations, Warren did not directly address the question, and instead offered a long-winded response about how everyone needs to abide by the law.
“I want to see everybody abide by the same set of rules. I want to see everyone who’s running for federal office disclose their taxes. I want to see everyone who’s in federal office make those same disclosures and get rid of any individual stock so they can’t trade in them,” Warren said. “For me, this is about changing all the rules.”

Such a non-answer. What a hypocrite.
