Good heavens...what on earth got a hold of your brain?!! What a pathetic public display of convoluted information. Barely a recognizable drop of accurate information. Having attended a major University during the early 1970's. . .many were for the first time beginning to discover previously unknown, hidden and/or denied minority ethnic roots in their geneology. It was a time of discovery and new identities NOT some negative scamming for monetary gain or privileges. That's what you creatures are into. This article tells more about the depraved mindsets of Scott Brown & Alliances, et al, INC., those writing it and those posting it on line than it does ANY genuine aspect of Elizabeth Warren's life. My deepest hope is that somehow you will all find a way to free yourselves from the addicting tangled and knotted web of fear and deceit that imprisons your minds, bodies and souls. Best wishes on the journey forward. PS. The path you're on now is a major dead end with an enormous cliff looming not to far in the distance. . .at the speed you're all traveling it's going to be a mighty big tumble and drop. Never too late to get busy looking for your lost souls. Good Luck..Godspeed.

NOTE: Breitbart was not a journalist in any sense nor interpretation of the profession. He was a CON ARTIST who invested heavily in deceptive SMUT promotion and publishing. His greatest crime was the SCAM JOB he ran on himself. A most sad state of human existence.

Yea? So what? she has some Native American blood- so that SURELY doesn't make her lily white, now does it?

The only genetic history I have of my family tree is what I have been told orally. When have you ever been asked to "PROVE" your ancestry in writing?

What nonsense. 100 years ago white society would have called her a "half-breed" of having 1/50 part Indian blood.

How can one "Confess" to their heritage? Another show of bigoted racism!

What really matters is Warren cares about the people, established the Consumer Protection Bureau to hold corporations accountable, whereas Brown is all about giving corporations free reign to make shoddy, toxic goods and products with no accountability.

I have always liked Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown too. If I lived in MA, I am honestly not sure who I would vote for. I can't believe she would be that dumb to lie about something like this.

BUT, I have family that have been here for hundreds of years and have heard all kinds of stories about alleged Native American in my "high cheeked boned" family. But, we have no proof. I would never make such a claim, it would be wrong.

I will also say that I have filled out many of those forms and at times had things on "the list" that I could have checked. Not wanting to be a "token" candidate for a job, I never did. (Well, except obvious things like being a woman and YES, I have been that token candidate at times).

On the flip side, I have been on many searches and we have NEVER been told what is on those forms and NEVER have been told who to interview or hire based on those forms.

As a lawyer and candidate, I do think far less of Elizabeth Warren now. She should have known better.

Actually, the original story in the Boston Globe say that:

"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. "

The article does not state it is a lie. If she believed it at the time, is it a lie? Thinking a little better about this now.


Also original article states:
"Two key people who recruited her to Harvard have said they did not know of her purported heritage or take it into account when hiring her. The school did not promote her as a Native American when she was hired, despite the fact that it was under intense pressure to diversify its faculty with more minorities. "

and

"Though she continues to consider herself Native American, she has not provided any genealogical evidence. "

I think there are a lot of those out there today Maui..one is in the White House!! :-)

"Last night, Elizabeth Warren finally admitted to the Boston Globe"..... "that she lied"..... when she made previous statements that she had “no idea” why Harvard Law School referred to her as a “woman of color.” Ms. Warren confessed that she told Harvard Law School when she was hired as a Visiting Professor in 1992 that she was a “woman of color.”

Elle..You really should maybe take something to sooth your anxiety!! It does no good to get all worked up over something that is fact but you don't like the truth.....ah well..sh*t happens!!

And I just love the manner in which the liberals come in and blast crap away and then don't have the common courtesy to note the story!

Carol the word "lied" was put in by the Breitbart group. It was not in the original article.

Maui- I guess Pee Paw was also a member of the Pretendian tribe.
