Et tu, Warren?

After news broke Thursday afternoon that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the progressive hero from Massachusetts, would endorse Hillary Clinton on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show on Thursday night, Bernie Sanders’ fans took to Facebook to voice their frustration.

A quick sampling of the comments that appeared on Warren’s latest Facebook post Thursday afternoon:

By endorsing Hillary Clinton you are now a big reason for the corruption in our country. I should have known all along that you were a sellout since you never endorsed Bernie Sanders. #BernieorBust

If you endorse Shillarry and accept the VP position that will be two women I won’t vote for. One a criminal and the other a sellout.

An endorsement of Hillary Clinton will undo everything for which you have stood. An endorsement of Hillary Clinton will undo my faith in you as a person with integrity.

….shame on you for backing clinton….. another pseudo-progressive we must vote out of office.

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
