Warren lied about her American Indian Heritage more than once

 

Another law school now says Elizabeth Warren claimed to be a minority faculty member, according to documents obtained by the the Boston Globe.

The documents supposedly show that as a faculty member at the University of Philadelphia, where Warren taught from 1987-1995, Warren identified herself as a Native American.

The Harvard Crimson, a publication from Harvard University, was the first to brag about Elizabeth Warren’s minority status after the school received negative attention for not having enough diversity in their faculty.

Warren has said she was proud of her Native American heritage and that she was hoping to connect with “people like me.” The directory, however, did not list her as someone with Native American heritage. It simply said “minority.” Harvard Law School also touted Warren as a Native American in the Harvard Crimson when it was under fire for a lack of diversity on its faculty.

After Warren was unable to produce proof that she was an American Indian, she received backlash for lying about her heritage for political gain.

As recently as last month Warren listed herself as an American Indian again in the school faculty directory.

It’s pretty clear at this point Warren listed herself as an American Indian and purposely lied about her heritage to get jobs.

Even more shocking is that after numerous stories have come out of Warren exploiting the system for political gain,  she has not offered an apology or suspended her campaign.

    great question!! i rezliaed i was punishing myself for yeeeears because i’m somewhat of a defeatist and figure: if i’m not into this, i’m the idiot (that could be the case).but it wasn’t until the last year that i rezliaed i haven’t read for *pleasure* for a long time. even though training yourself to accept new ideas is painful and will eventually payoff in a new kind of awareness and ability, i guess i hadn’t read a work of fiction or poetry in quite some time. i didn’t know *how* to read for pleasure anymore. then i read dewey, the small town library cat and everything changed. i was hooked immediately. it has taken me awhile to trust myself enough to put a book down. 6 months after dewey, i read all families are psychotic (d. coupland) and now i’m changing my life with doppelganster happily reading for pleasure for the first time in years,~erin
