She pretended to be 1/32 Cherokee so she could get those plum affirmative action jobs all her life. Yet now Lizzie Warren just doesn’t have the time to meet with the folks she pretends to be. Can you be any more of a fake than this obnoxious woman?
Native American Democrats who hoped to meet with Democratic U.S. Senate challenger Elizabeth Warren got the brush-off yesterday, depriving them of a chance to ask about her claims of Cherokee ancestry.
“I would like to have confronted her why she used the Cherokee affiliation even though she’s not an enrolled member,” said Harlyn Geronimo, great grandson of the legendary Apache warrior. He and others here for the convention told the Herald this week they wanted Warren to come to their caucus meeting yesterday. Warren ignored Herald questions about it. Several disappointed Indian delegates and attendees said they wanted to hear why she listed herself as a minority in law school directories based on “stories” from her family of a great-great-great-grandmother who was Cherokee — which if true would make her 1⁄32 Native American.
“One thirty-second (Indian) is very small,” Geronimo said. “It don’t get you nowhere. That’s what I’m upset about.”
A simple DNA test could clear this up, but she’s too busy, apparently.
Helen McNeil, an Alaskan delegate from the Tlingit tribe, said Warren should take a DNA test to remove all doubt.
“If she wants to claim it, then she can pay $100 and have it verified,” said McNeil.
Then she’s be a confirmed fraud, and we just can’t have that. Speaking of frauds, she left one nearly asleep last night.
Warren got a loud standing ovation from Democratic delegates, but her nervous delivery left some in the arena underwhelmed, including U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry, who was caught yawning on national TV.
