Elizabeth Warren went after Pete Buttigieg during the last debate for holding fundraisers with big donors.
In typical left wing fashion, Warren is guilty of doing this herself.
Now she is being called out for it.
The Hill reports:
Warren faces online criticism over past big donor fundraisers
Since going after South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) about his wealthy donors in Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has received flak over the same issue.
Bush-era former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleisher tweeted “What’s the Massachusetts word for hypocrite?”
During the debate, Warren criticized Buttigieg for hosting an exclusive donor event in a Napa Valley “wine cave” that featured $900 bottles of wine.
“Billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the United States,” she said, adding “I do not sell access to my time.”

The Massachusetts senator, along with fellow progressive candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), have both sworn off taking donations from billionaires and large corporations and have repeatedly attacked fellow candidates who haven’t done the same.
However, this policy is somewhat new for Warren, who took money from wealthy donors during her most recent Senate reelection campaign. She also took $10 million from her Senate reelection campaign to seed her presidential bid.

Even Obama adviser David Axelrod says this looks bad:
This was the danger in the @ewarren “wine cave” attack on @PeteButtigieg. Her own past fundraising practices were pretty much in line with his, including even some of the same high dollar sponsors. She invited stories like this. Unforced error.https://t.co/OpO7U9avP3

Warren is a terrible candidate.
That becomes more clear as this Democrat primary goes on.
