| 1. Another day and still no comment on Warren's practice of law in Mass without a license by David Kravitz
Yet another 24 hours has gone by with SCOTUS law clerk David Kravitz of Blue Mass Group not speaking out on the practice of law without a license that Elizabeth Warren has seemingly done for 20 years in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Until Kravitz does so, this will be the first thing you should know, every day for the rest of the campaign.

|3. Democratic candidate in John Walsh's home district falsifies ethics forms, says MassFiscal
The Democratic candidate for State Representative in Party Chair John Walsh's home district has falsified his statement of financial interest, according to the watch-dog group Mass Fiscal Alliance. The Enterprise News has the story.
An independent watchdog organization has filed a complaint with the state Ethics Commission against 7th Plymouth District state representative candidate Robert Toomey.
The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance - a nonprofit organization that says it "advocates for right of center economic, fiscal and good government issues" - filed the complaint on Tuesday morning. It states that Toomey failed to list his income as an Abington public school substitute teacher on his State of Financial Interests, or SFI, form.
Each candidate seeking office must file a SFI, a listing of his or her income and assets, as a requirement of the state's financial disclosure law.
Toomey, of Abington, is the Democratic challenger for the 7th Plymouth state rep seat against Republican incumbent Geoff Diehl, of Whitman.
4. Globe confirms Warren released partial list of clients
The Boston Globe confirmed that the Elizabeth Warren campaign listed only a partial list of clients before the debate Monday evening.
The cases she included from before 2008 were those already available from other publicly searchable databases, when she represented a client in court.
That meant her list excluded cases in which she may have consulted or served clients in other ways. A 2002 affidavit, first posted on the conservative blog Legal Insurrection, shows examples of some of those consulting clients not mentioned in Monday night's release. That affidavit shows that among them were Dow Chemical "in the early days of the Dow Corning bankruptcy," according to Warren's 2002 affidavit, filed as part of another case. The campaign confirmed that Warren, an expert in bankruptcy trusts, consulted for the company, but did not provide details, citing attorney client privilege. In that period, the company set up a trust to pay plaintiffs who claimed in lawsuits that silicone breast implants had led to health problems.
Warren's campaign would not say why it would not disclose the full list of her clients.
Their partial release of the Harvard professor's cases moments before the debate was timed to do two things: meet a challenge Brown gave her last week to reveal all of her clients, and to challenge Brown to release his clients, so she could gain the offensive during the televised face off Monday night.
