Can’t wait to hear how she explains the latest twist in this story. Alex Pappas reports:
Cornell Law School professor William A. Jacobson, citing a genealogist, claimed Tuesday that Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren‘s ancestry includes a great-great-great grandfather who helped round up Cherokees in the days leading to the Trail of Tears…
“In what may be the ultimate and cruelest irony … it turns out that Warren’s great-great-great grandfather was a member of a militia unit which participated in the round-up of the Cherokees in the prelude to the Trail of Tears,” Jacobson wrote on his blog…
A spokeswoman for Warren’s campaign didn’t immediately return a request for comment from The Daily Caller on the report.
She’s busy trying to figure out how to blame it on sexism. As for Warren, this new information might explain the following from the Boston Herald‘s Inside Track:
Senatorial wannabe Elizabeth Warren, aka Fauxcahontas, said she listed herself as a minority in law school directories because she was hoping to meet others with Native American roots. So isn’t it a shame that Liz took a pass on last weekend’s 17th annual Harvard Powwow????
The Harvard Law School prof was campaigning on the North Shore last Saturday while Harvard’s Native American Program filled Radcliffe Yard with Native American singers, dancers and drummers.
“The Harvard Powwow … is a great way to bring local tribes into the Harvard community, acknowledging the ancestral homelands, and show our heritage,” Cesar Alvarez ’13, the incoming president of Native Americans at Harvard College, told the Harvard Gazette…
“I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group, something that might happen with people who are like I am,” Warren told the Herald. “Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it, and so I stopped checking it off.”
But if she was so interested in meeting Native Americans, why did Liz skip out on the Powwow — a perfect opportunity to commune with her peeps right in her own backyard???
What was she supposed to say? “Sorry about that”?
I wonder if Elizabeth Warren is starting to regret claiming Native American heritage to give her an edge in her academic career. Probably not. It’s always somebody else’s fault. Scott Brown speak with forked tongue.
