Don't let Wall Street sideline Elizabeth Warren.

Dear Friend,

Elizabeth Warren's victory over Scott Brown means that Massachusetts will soon be represented by the strongest voice for Wall Street accountability in the Senate.

But Wall Street-friendly politicians and lobbyists in DC have started a whisper campaign to keep Warren off of the Senate Banking Committee — the one Senate committee that would most directly empower her to fight for consumers and stand up to Wall Street banks.

Don't let Wall Street sideline Elizabeth Warren.

Speak out to tell Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to give Elizabeth Warren a seat on the Senate Banking Committee. Click here to automatically sign the petition.

We've seen this before. Elizabeth Warren was effectively blocked from heading up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau — which she conceived of, advocated for and ultimately helped start up — by DC insiders who didn't want such a strong advocate of banking reform in charge of the Wall Street watchdog she helped create.

She then ran for Senate and won. Now it's up to us to have her back and ensure that when she gets to the Senate she can be the fierce and effective advocate we so desperately need.

Elizabeth Warren is a clear choice for the Senate Banking Committee. She is a respected Harvard professor and one of the country's leading experts on bankruptcy law who spent her career focused on the financial struggles of middle class families.

What's more, she has proven time and again that that she is willing to stand up to Wall Street on behalf of consumers, which is why Washington and Wall Street insiders are trying to keep her off the Senate Banking Committee.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is hearing from banking industry lobbyists and conservative Democrats who don't want Elizabeth Warren on the banking committee. Now he needs to hear from us.

Put simply, there are far too few people in power who are as ready, willing and able to stand up to Wall Street banks as she is.

And whether it's speaking out against a secret bailout of AIG or demanding Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JP Morgan Chase, resign from the Board of the New York Fed, she has continued to carry the torch to this day.

Warren accomplished all of this before she was elected to the Senate. Just imagine what she'll be able to do if she's allowed to fully leverage the legislative and oversight powers of a sitting senator on the main committee for Wall Street legislation.
