Elizabeth Warren Caught in Lie: Claimed To Be "Minority" -- Turns Out She's Only 1/32nd Cherokee Indian

Chris | InformationLiberation

Well, this is embarrassing. Leftist favorite Elizabeth Warren reportedly touted her "minority status" for years, yet now an investigation by the Boston Herald is saying her "minority status" consists in being 1/32nd Cherokee Indian.

Via The Boston Herald:
Desperately scrambling to validate Democrat Elizabeth Warren’s Native American heritage amid questions about whether she used her minority status to further her career, the Harvard Law professor’s campaign last night finally came up with what they claim is a Cherokee connection — her great-great-great-grandmother.

“She would be 1/32nd of Elizabeth Warren’s total ancestry,” noted genealogist Christopher Child said, referring to the candidate’s great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, who is listed on an Oklahoma marriage certificate as Cherokee. Smith is an ancestor on Warren’s mother’s side, Child said.

The missing link comes after Warren’s embattled campaign faced sharp questions about her Native American background in the wake of Herald stories that showed both Harvard Law School and Warren herself had touted her tribal lineage and claimed she was a member of a minority for years.

Warren’s shaken campaign faced another crisis yesterday when it was revealed that beginning in 1986 and continuing through 1995, Warren had listed herself as a minority professor in the Association of American Law Schools desk book, a directory of law professors from participating schools.

Warren had flatly denied that she ever touted her Native American background professionally.
This is going to be entertaining.

72223 They took the whole Cherokee Nation
And put us on this reservation
Took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the bow and knife

They took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

They took the whole Indian Nation
And locked us on this reservation
And though I wear a shirt and tie
I'm still a red man deep inside

Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
So proud to live, so proud to die

But maybe someday when they learn
Cherokee Nation will return
Will return
Will return
Will return
Will return

"1/32 is the number... her claim is valid and legal, if she made it."

Not true, see here: http://volokh.com/2012/04/28/elizabeth-warren-herself-claimed-minority-status/

" This story reminded me of the 1980s case of the twin red-haired Boston firefighters who claimed to be black, based on a photo of a great-grandmother and alleged oral history. While I remembered that they had gotten fired for their alleged fraud, I didn’t remember this detail:

>> Under current rules, said [general counsel to the state personnel office] Ms. Dale, candidates who say they are members of minority groups are judged by appearance, documented personal history and identification with a minority community. Disputes over claims of minority status are resolved by the Department of Personnel Administration.

And indeed, there eventually was a two-day administrative hearing, in which the hearing officer determined that the twins failed all three criteria, and thus were not black. A judge upheld the ruling, finding that the twins had claimed minority status in bad faith.I have to admit being under the impression until now that as a legal matter, minority status was an in issue of self-reporting. But at least in the Massachusetts Civil Service system, one can get fired for “racial fraud.”

70178 her claim (if she made it) is valid, chris, you soap opera fan.

she's not running for office under any special minority status.
she's not claiming any special legal right due to minority status.

it's not even a story...

6464 70187: I think you might be right. If not many other people can lay claim to being 1/32nd Cherokee, then she is indeed in the minority.

6464 8067: How can someone be 1/64 Jewish? Is that like being 1/64 Christian, or 1/64 Muslim, or 1/64 Buddhist?
