As Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) tries to put her Native
American heritage controversy to rest, another chapter in the scandal has just
been written. It turns out, not only did the senator claim American Indian
heritage at Harvard, she also claimed it when applying for the Texas State Bar
This latest revelation, published exclusively by the Washington
Post, with documents and all, will undoubtedly keep this in the news for
“She is sorry that she was not more mindful of this
earlier in her career,” said Kristen Orthman, a Warren campaign spokeswoman.
A few months back, Warren shared the results of a DNA
test that proved she was 1/1,024th Native American. The Cherokee Nation called
it "indefensible." Instead of backing down on her claims,
she should have apologized.
“I can’t go back,” Warren told The Washington
Post in another interview on Tuesday. “But I am sorry for furthering
confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”
Perhaps she should just end her 2020 campaign now before
it gets worse?
The RNC issued the following response:
“For the seven years this has been in the news, Elizabeth
Warren has refused to apologize," said RNC spokesman Mike Reed. "Now,
four days before her formal presidential launch, she’s issued a politically
opportunistic apology that doesn’t go nearly far enough. Warren pretended to be
a minority to climb the Ivy League ladder – a lie that will continue to haunt
her presidential ambitions.”
