Sen. Warren: I’m More of a Princess Leia Than Darth Vader


BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sees herself as more of a Princess Leia than Darth Vader.

The Massachusetts Democrat said she made the Star Wars comparison Thursday in response to comments made by Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer, a Missouri Republican, suggesting Warren was the “Darth Vader of the financial services world” at an American Bankers Association conference Wednesday.

Warren said in a fundraising email she’s always seen herself “more as a Princess Leia-type,” who has never been tempted by the dark side.

Warren called Luetkemeyer “a Wall Street yes-man.”

Warren said “they can call me Darth Vader or Voldemort or the Wicked Witch of Massachusetts for all I care — but I won’t be neutered.”

She was responding to reports that Luetkemeyer suggested that they “find a way to neuter her.”
