Have you been following the trials and tribulations of Elizabeth Warren the last few weeks? If not…this has become somewhat amusing the more that we learn…in fact, it’s almost like a comedy sitcom lately.
Just read about this last night…so we’ll start there, seems she was also the ‘First Woman of Color‘ too. This is via FN:
Elizabeth Warren has pushed back hard on questions about a Harvard Crimson piece in 1996 that described her as Native American, saying she had no idea the school where she taught law was billing her that way and saying it never came up during her hiring a year earlier, which others have backed up.
But a 1997 Fordham Law Review piece described her as Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color,” based, according to the notes at the bottom of the story, on a “telephone interview with Michael Chmura, News Director, Harvard Law (Aug. 6, 1996).”
The mention was in the middle of a lengthy and heavily-annotated Fordham piece on diversity and affirmative action and women. The title of the piece, by Laura Padilla, was “Intersectionality and positionality: Situating women of color in the affirmative action dialogue.”
You can read the whole article about this here…it’s full of information folks, well worth the read.
Yet Warren keeps on truckin’…she doubled down on stupid just a few days back. Here she is on CNN. This is via DC:
With Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown still running even against Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, the controversy surrounding Warren’s claims of Native American heritage could imperil liberals’ hopes of winning back the seat once occupied by Ted Kennedy.
But Warren isn’t backing down from her claims of Native American ancestry. In an appearance on CNN’s “Starting Point” on Monday to promote her call for J.P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon to step down from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York., Warren doubled down and said she was proud of her disputed heritage.
“You know, I’m proud of my Native American heritage,” Warren said. “I’m proud of my family. It’s now the case that people have gone over my college records, my law school records, every job I’ve ever had to see that I got my work. I got my jobs because I do my work. I work hard. I’ve been a good teacher.”
She contended the heritage questions were an effort by Brown, along with allies on Wall Street and in Washington, to “change the subject.”
“I think what this is really about is that the economy — middle-class families, working families — are getting hammered and Wall Street wants to change the subject. Scott Brown wants to change the subject. Washington wants to change the subject. I think that’s the real problem here,” Warren said.
So friends…do you think Warren will still win in Massachusetts vs Scott Brown with all this information that has been surfacing about her day after day…or do you think she’s digging her own political grave the more she opens her big mouth?
Personally…I think her being on the warpath regarding all of this phony BS she’s used in the past to help get her to where she is today…is going to end up being her own trail of tears come election night!
