Big chief Liz Warren proves again she’s not ready for primetime in this hypocrite alert on her attacks against Pete Buttigieg. From the Washington Examiner:
Last week, Warren, 70, targeted the South Bend, Indiana, mayor’s work for McKinsey from 2007-2010, and called on him to release the list of all his former clients. Buttigieg, 37, has repeatedly said he is forbidden from disclosing all of his former clients from doing because of legally-binding non-disclosure agreements.
“Look, I understand that there are some candidates who want to distract from the fact they have not released the names of their clients, and they have not released the names of their bundlers, who right now in this campaign are gathering up big checks who are getting special access to the candidate,” Warren said Nov. 26 in Des Moines, Iowa.
She’s clearly trying to position herself as the candidate that is against money interests in politics.
Turns out, she herself was criticized for using the exact same firm!
But Warren didn’t mention her own experience retaining McKinsey for consulting services, going back to her days as a Harvard Law School professor. In 1999, under Warren’s directorship, the law school retained the firm’s services to help formulate a “long-term development” plan.
Warren, who chaired the school’s Institutional Life Committee and helped steer the $800,000-$1 million McKinsey study, said she landed on the firm after interviewing a number of competitors because of their history working with other educational institutions.
The hiring of the firm led to widespread criticism by both students and faculty, who called the project a waste of the law school’s funds. Much of the firm’s purported recommendations, like class size reduction and general student unhappiness, were things a simple internal survey could have concluded.
Warren was forced to deny a Boston Globe report that the school was overhauling much of its services based on McKinsey’s advice.
Geez, you would think she’d remember something like that and avoid being called a hypocrite by going after Buttigieg in other ways. Or maybe she knew and just didn’t give a damn. Luckily for her, both she and Buttigieg are crashing in the polls and are likely gonna drop out soon. Otherwise those poor liberal voters would be forced to choose between a real homosexual and a wannabe-Native American.
