Elizabeth Warren and a Very Strange Bedfellow

Everyone knows that Elizabeth Warren is a champion of financial reform, right?  She's got a good reputation, which is one of the reasons that she's running for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.  She's the darling of Occupy Wall Street people looking for real reform of the American political system, supposedly free from the corrupting influence of big-money politics.

They say that politics makes for strange bedfellows.  Need a blatant example?  He's an invitation for a fundraiser for Elizabeth Warren's campaign.  See anything unusual?  Let's just focus on one name.
Why would ANYBODY pretending to be a champion for middle-class, against the supposed oppression and corruption of the super-rich, associate themselves with George Soros?

George Soros is a speculator and hedge-fund manager who currently ranks at number 7 on the Forbes list of richest Americans.  While the fortunes of most Americans plummeted  during the financial crisis, his increased.

George Soros is also the #4 top funder of shadowy 527 committees.

George Soros is also one of the founding members of the so-called "Shadow Party" within the Democratic Party.

Soros is a New York resident.  Ms. Warren is running for office in Massachusetts.  George Soros is active in the politics of other states, including here in California.  He and other well-connected, big-money Democrats funded Proposition 27, designed to eliminate citizen-based reforms of California's redistricting process.

In my opinion, Proposition 27 was a very anti-democratic piece of legislation (which was supported, naturally, by various Progressive politicians and labor unions).

Be careful, people.  You can tell a lot about someone by the people with whom they associate.
