Unlikely: Demo Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren claims she isn't in wealthy 1%, but she lives in a house worth $5 million

Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren claims to have been the founder of Occupy Wall Street. She also claims to not be the 1%. Papaers filed for her Senate campsign indicate a net worth of up to $14.5 million.
(BuzzFeed) — The rhetoric of class and inequality is back in force, and Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — the standard-bearer for a combative new progressivism — made the case to MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell last night that members of the Senate shouldn’t own stock.

“I realize there are some wealthy individuals – I’m not one of them, but some wealthy individuals who have a lot of stock portfolios” she told him.

Hard to see how Warren wouldn’t be, by most standards, wealthy, according to the Personal Financial Disclosure form she filed to run for Senate shows that she’s worth as much as $14.5 million. She earned more than $429,000 from Harvard last year alone for a total of about $700,000, and lives in a house worth $5 million.
