Forum Post: Warren Lies Again, now she is Cherokee

From the Boston Globe:

Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren acknowledged for the first time late Wednesday night that she told Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania that she was Native American, but she continued to insist that race played no role in her recruitment.

“At some point after I was hired by them, I . . . provided that information to the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard,’’ she said in a statement issued by her campaign. “My Native American heritage is part of who I am, I’m proud of it and I have been open about it.’’

Warren’s statement is her first acknowledgment that she identified herself as Native American to the Ivy League schools. While she has said she identified herself as a minority in a legal directory, she has carefully avoided any suggestion during the last month that she took further actions to promote her purported heritage.

When the issue first surfaced last month, Warren said she only learned Harvard was claiming her as a minority when she read it in the Boston Herald.

Warren’s new statement came after the Globe asked her campaign about documents it obtained Wednesday from Harvard’s library showing that the university’s law school began reporting a Native American female professor in federal statistics for the 1992-93 school year, the first year Warren worked at Harvard, as a visiting professor.

A campaign official said they had no records indicating that she had informed Harvard of Native American heritage that year

You must have an amazing genetic database to know she has no native American ancestors!
Are you a Mormon? or a birther? or a Troll? or a liar?
Of course YOU can PROVE you are NOT a liar by PROVING
Elizabeth Warrens ancestry.

She claimed she had no Cherokee heritage. Now she is changing her story.

This is a non-issue. All sound and fury signifying nothing. Harvard wanted a minority woman, whereas Warren's true life story is far more compelling than high cheek bones. Get over it people, everyone lies to some degree or another. EVERYONE! This is a non-issue and you're being manipulated by Karl Rove.

[-] -1 points by Dgoerz (20) 2 years ago

It's a huge story because she not only is she lying and this is great insight into her integrity, but she is also gaming the system to garner an advantage. She will be the one with the power if she is elected into office and this clearly shows that all she wants is power, not to let the system work.

If Harvard wanted a minority, then Harvard should have gotten one. She does not fit that classification.

Let me be clear, I think the affirmative actions rules are ridiculous for this exact reason. People learn to game the system.

Native American heritage ? OK, somewhat impressive. My lineage goes all the way back to the amoeba.

If this is the worst they can dig up on Warren after spending millions to investigating her, then it's going to backfire on the bastards. What, that she identifies with Native Americans?!!!

Well, good for her! So what?

She lied about it for personal advancement.

You mean like the way that Romney lies about jobs? Or how every Rupublican candidate running for office lies in their attack ads?

I don't have any data to prove this, but I think Romney is a unicorn. We should start an investigation into this matter and demand that Romney reveals his true biological roots. After all, its unconstitutional to elect unicorns to office!

LOL - I saw an anti Mittens Obama ad for the 1st time today. I would post it but then I would be charged and I suppose rightfully so as being partisan.

I am partisan - People Partisan.

Uh, she lied. You don't think that tell us something about her character. You want her responsible for other people's tax money when she has no moral compass?

[-] 3 points by ancientmariner (275) 2 years ago

SHE lied?!!! Man, you are getting funny!

The Republicans are the Party of the Liars. They never stop lying. They will lie to your, face behind your back, or to themselfves in the out house.

[-] -1 points by Dgoerz (20) 2 years ago

What are you saying that she didn't lie?

When Republicans misbehave and lie they should be dealt with the same way. Bad beahviour should not be condoned.

[-] 2 points by ancientmariner (275) 2 years ago

Ah, but when Republicans do it they are given a medal, and not just when they embelish their resumes, but when they lie our nation into wars for their personal enrichment and violate the Geneva Convention - oh, and bankrupt the Western World. You see, it's a question of degree and accountability.

Bush didn't lie and he didn't enrich himself. Cheney didn't either so that makes no sense. Obama has violated many more rules of warfare than Bush has so not sure what you are getting at.

Bankrupting the western world, have you seen what Obama has done with the medicare liabilities so again not sure where you are coming from.

why do you partisan hacks care about let-right handed bull sht?

What does this have to do with Occupy? where the rules of this forum state no partisan dogma crap,. go tell it to some one who thinks the 'representative' system is a democracy,. both parties are owned by the military/corporate/bankster greed-whores. The 0.1%

[-] -1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

What percentage is she?

[-] 2 points by riethc (1149) 2 years ago

She believes she is 1/32 Cherokee.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Thats what I am. Not exactly enough to start claiming "roots"...

One thing to talk about it with friends, another thing to use it for an advantage in applications.

[-] 2 points by riethc (1149) 2 years ago

It's just a psyop. The "powers that be" are actually going after her for this.

Elizabeth Warren talks a good game about doing the "right thing"--until it came to using every angle to get a job. She is no better than the corporations she excoriates for using loopholes to avoid paying taxes. I don't need to listen to her tell me what is right and wrong.

[-] -1 points by Dgoerz (20) 2 years ago

Shhh, move along now, move along now, nothing to see here.
