Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren was nowhere to be found at a networking event for American Indians held Thursday at progressive activist conference Netroots Nation.
Based on her lack of twitter activity on Thursday, it’s not clear where Warren was or why she couldn’t make it to the event to hob-nob with *fellow* Native Americans during the conference’s American Indian caucus Thursday morning. She is scheduled to speak at the conference’s keynote “War on and for Women” panel today at noon.
Warren was scheduled to hold a campaign event in Arlington, Massachusetts this AM, but that event was canceled last minute. She was on MSNBC with Al Sharpton Thursday night ,however, so perhaps the taping of the show interfered with her ability to make it to the conference before her scheduled speaking time.
Still, it’s odd that Warren, who has repeatedly claimed that she is a Cherokee Indian despite evidence to the contrary, would not set aside time to attend the high-profile conference’s American Indian networking session, which is described on the Netroots Nation agenda as an opportunity to “connect with like-minded folks and talk with others from your community.”
Conservatives and authentic Cherokee Indians have criticized her for her tall tales, including her initial claim that she disclosed her Native American heritage to Harvard Law School, where she used to teach, to help her meet other people like herself.
Yet, the executive director of Harvard University’s Native American Program (HUNAP),Shelly Lowe, told Breitbart News she never once saw Warren at any of the University’s events for Native Americans, nor did Warren attend the school’s annual Pow-Wow last fall.
In spite of her ‘Fauxcahotas’ flubs, Massachusetts’ liberal voters are still torn between Warren and incumbent Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) in this year’s US Senate race. The seat is currently a toss-up and will most likely be a make or break race this year in the GOP’s fight to win control the US Senate.
