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.
