Elizabeth Warren on Obama's Wall Street pick for Treasury: 'Enough is enough'

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is lashing out over President Obama's latest pick for the Treasury Department, writing in a Huffington Post op-ed that "enough is enough."

Obama last week appointed investment banker Antonio Weiss to serve as the Treasury Department's Under Secretary for Domestic Finance.
