A progressive group on Wednesday called on centrist group Third Way to stop criticizing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her plan to expand Social Security and also demanded it reveal its donors.
The Progressive Change Campaign Committee, along with members of Social Security Works and Campaign for Community Change, submitted a petition with more than 125,000 signatures that read:
Third Way should publicly reveal its Wall Street donors so everyone knows why they are attacking Elizabeth Warren. Third Way should also stop attacking popular progressive ideas like expanding Social Security.
The petition is the latest hit in the ongoing fight between Third Way, Warren and the PCCC, which started earlier this month when Third Way leaders penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal criticizing Warren and her plan to expand Social Security.
Correction: This post originally incorrectly stated that Warren called on Third Way to reveal its donors. Warren wrote a letter to six CEOs of U.S. banks asking them to disclose donations to think tanks.
