Is It Ironic That Elizabeth Warren, Slated To Head The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Has A Potential Credit Card Fraud Problem?

Breitbart notes the Boston Globe’s report of a $36 million dollar for Pseudajawea–good on her–and then this worrisome bit:
Yet more than 40% of these funds–an estimated $16 million–have come online via two websites that do not have industry-standard protections and are vulnerable to fraud and illegal foreign national donations.
Today’s report, which will be available for full public scrutiny by Tuesday morning, includes $8.7 million raised between August 18 and September 30 after her most recent Federal Election Commission filing–an August 17, 2012 pre-primary report that showed she had raised $3.7 million between July 1 and August 17, and $28 million from the start of her campaign.
Warren made her reputation as an anti-fraud advocate for consumers.
That recalls a story from last December, admittedly ancient history by internet standards:
President Barack Obama’s “Consumer Czar” Elizabeth Warren was appointed by Obama to help set up and, many fear, to eventually run the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). In March 2011, Warren testified to Congress about the CFPB’s role in a 50-state settlement underway with the nation’s largest mortgage lenders related to alleged improper foreclosure procedures.
Through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and the open records laws of the states, Judicial Watch obtained documents that show that Warren’s and the CFPB’s involvement in the mortgage settlement negotiations is much greater than she told Congress.
Warren is such a corrupt little joke that the only question is why she has any numbers in Mass. polls at all.
Well, at least Elizabeth has her Iron Maiden tribute band to fall back on. And, after the first Tuesday of next month, #OccupyResoluteDesk should be available for some session work.
