It was an honest mistake.
Far left moonbat Elizabeth Warren made $192,722 during her gig as chairman of a congressional committee in 2009. Her campaign said the government only paid her $64,268.
This is the same socialist crackpot who last was seen on tape lecturing business owners about forking over their profits to their benevolent government.
WARREN: I hear all this, “You know, well, this is class warfare. This is whatever.” No! There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody! You built a factory out there? Good for you! But I want to be clear: You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You, uh, were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory and hire someone to protect against this because of the work the rest of us did.

As Rush says, “Dealing with liberals is like dealing with a one-armed lunatic.” Rush also calls Warren a Marxist.
The campaign for Democratic Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren said Friday she had been paid $192,722 for serving as chairman of a congressional committee that monitored the 2008 federal bank bailout, three times as much as had originally been acknowledged.
The Warren campaign revised the figure following a POLITICO report on Thursday, highlighting the fact that the Congressional Oversight Panel, which oversaw the TARP program, has not publicly disclosed exactly how it spent $10.5 million on salaries, travel, consultants and other expenses. Warren said she now supports public access to the oversight panel’s records, though her campaign wouldn’t say if she plans to actively push to open up the records.
Warren served as the oversight panel’s chairman from its creation in the fall of 2008 until September 2010, when President Barack Obama tapped her to help launch the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Senate Republicans, however, blocked her from being formally appointed to head the new agency.
Warren spokesman Kyle Sullivan initially said Warren, who is seeking the Democratic nomination to take on Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) next year, had earned $64,289 for serving on the oversight panel, based on executive-branch financial disclosure statements she filed for 2009 and 2010.
But Sullivan told POLITICO on Friday that the campaign had overlooked $128,433 Warren earned from the panel in 2009.
“In a rush to meet your deadline, we made an honest mistake,” Sullivan said. “And we misread a document and thought $64,289 was for 2009 and 2010. It was only for 2010.”
Warren testified during a Dec. 10, 2008, hearing of the House Financial Services Committee that she considered her role as chairman of the TARP oversight panel “a part-time job,” as did its other members.
Maybe she borrowed Geithner’s copy of TurboTax?
