Elizabeth Warren and Geoff Diehl had another debate this week. When Diehl pointed out that Warren has an ethics complaint against her campaign, she had no idea such a thing had occurred. The audience even gasped.
The Washington Times reports:
Warren says she’s not aware of her own campaign’s fundraising
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren pleaded ignorance Tuesday, saying she wasn’t aware her campaign attempted to raise money off of her opposition to Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh.
Ms. Warren was challenged on the September fundraising email, which has spawned an ethics complaint in the Senate, at a debate Tuesday. The Democrat tried to brush the question aside, until the moderator pointedly asked her to respond to whether she did raise funds off her vote.
“Actually, I don’t know,” she responded.
Ms. Warren declared her opposition to Justice Kavanaugh early on, and described her opposition in a Sept. 17 email to supporters that asked for them to contribute to her re-election campaign.
The watchdog group Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) says asking for money to show support for a future vote is a violation of Senate ethics. They filed a complaint against Ms. Warren and fellow Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California.
The Senate’s rules prohibit senators from “cashing in” by using their official positions for personal gain.

She might not be quite as smart as her left wing supporters think she is.
