Amazing: Lizzie Warren Still Making Up Stories

Geez, the lies just never end with this one.

Elizabeth Warren has been tripped up on another chapter from her colorful “family lore.”

Last September, the newly minted Senate candidate told fall convocation at the University of Massachusetts at Boston: “My grandmother drove a wagon in the land rush to settle territory out West. It was 1889, she was 15 years old, and she had her little brothers and sisters in the back of the wagon. Her mother had died and her father had ridden ahead on horseback to try to find land near water. She lived to be 94 to see her youngest grandchild, that’s me, graduate from a public university and start teaching in public elementary school. She thought that was just about as good as it got.”

Turns out Warren’s grandmother, Hannie Reed, died Nov. 13, 1969, according to a death notice in The Oklahoman newspaper, months before her granddaughter graduated from University of Houston.

Naturally, she then had to clear the record. She wouldn’t have to constantly clear the record if she ever told the truth.

    I wouldn’t believe Warren if she said Philadelphia was in Pennsylvania… and I live five miles from the city limits.
