Birthplace: Oklahoma City, OK

Gender: Female
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Legal Scholar, Politician
Party Affiliation: Democratic

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: US Senator from Massachusetts

Law professor at Harvard, appointed by Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada) to chair the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP), the bank and financial industry bailout. It should be noted that "oversight" was her only role in TARP she issued reports, but her office had no authority to determine how the TARP program operated, or to investigate wrongdoing or issue subpoenas, etc.

For many years, she has been perhaps the most outspoken and articulate voice for ordinary people in American economics, and even before the financial collapse of 2008 she proposed the establishment of a federal office to protect consumers in their dealings with banks and finance institutions. When this Consumer Financial Protection Agency (CFPA) was established, however, Warren was seen as too pro-consumer to be confirmed in the pro-corporate Senate. She was instead appointed by President Obama to a "special assistant" position in the Treasury Dept, reporting to Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner with "suggestions and advice" for how CFPA should be run.

She ran for US Senate in 2012, defeating and succeeding Scott Brown.
