Loony Lizzie Warren Listed Herself as a Minority in Professional Directories

Posted by on Apr 30, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Looks like aspiring Massachusetts senator Lizzie Warren is becoming increasingly red-faced over her claims to being part Native American. Apparently she’s been pulling a fast one for years.

Despite claiming she never used her Native American heritage when applying for a job, Elizabeth Warren’s campaign admitted last night the Democrat listed her minority status in professional directories for years when she taught at the University of Texas and the University of Pennsylvania.

From 1986 to 1995, Warren’s name is included in the Association of American Law Schools’ annual directory of minority law teachers, according to records obtained by the Herald.

The campaign for GOP U.S. Sen. Scott Brown last night called for Warren to “come clean.”

“This story raises serious questions about Elizabeth Warren’s credibility. The record now shows Prof. Warren did claim to be a ‘minority,’ and that she attempted to mislead the public about these facts when she was first asked about the issue last week,” said Brown spokesman Jim Barnett. “Prof. Warren needs to come clean about her motivations for making these claims and explain the contradictions between her rhetoric and the record.”

But the Warren campaign insisted the candidate did nothing wrong.

Except for passing herself off as a minority, of course.

    The way the real world works for the non-elite

    Let’s imagine;
    1. An undergraduate applicant puts on an application that he is a Native American
    2. The school reviews the applicant’s package of grades, test scores, recommendations and special circumstances (e.g. the bald claim, “I am a Native American”)
    3. The school, which has a policy of putting its thumb on the scale in favor of rare Native American applicants meeting minimal standards of the institution, sends out an acceptance letter.

    Like all such acceptance letters, it reminds the applicant that falsification of information represents grounds for rescinding the offer.

    4. Unlike transcripts and SAT scores, the claim of Native American blood is not generally documented by a third party or by having someone independently send the supporting material – in this case, a tribal certificate of enrollment or some similar proof commonly held by the millions of actual Native Americans. In Warren’s case, she seemed to count on using the fact that she is a native of OK, with its large Cherokee Nation (300,000 citizens) and dozens of other tribes, as being enough to get her past the post.

    If the applicant I described is subsequently discovered to have lied or misrepresented his background, the admitting institution would almost always rescind the admittance and treat the applicant as a liar. Having a third party research and claim to find a link 20 years later doesn’t cut it unless you sit in the academy and are a liberal.
