[Elizabeth Warren] Claim To Be First Nursing Mother To Take NJ Bar Exam
elizabethwarrenwiki.org ^ | June 21, 2014 | none H/T Legal Insurrection

Posted on 06/21/2014 7:13:27 PM PDT by expat1000

While giving a speech at the Chicago Humanities Festival in 2011, Elizabeth Warren asserted that she was the first nursing mother to take the New Jersey Bar Exam, as reported at The Boston Herald (link now dead, reprinted at Legal Insurrection[1]) (emphasis added):

Warren, who had no public events yesterday, again refused an interview request from the Herald, responding to questions instead through a spokeswoman by email. Meanwhile, campaign officials scrambled to address another claim Warren’s made about her life’s story. “I was the first nursing mother to take a bar exam in the state of New Jersey,” Warren told an audience at the Chicago Humanities Festival in 2011, in a video posted on the CHF website. When asked how Warren knows that, her campaign said: “Elizabeth was making a point about the very serious challenges she faced as a working mom — from taking an all-day bar exam when she was still breast-feeding, to finding work as a lawyer that would accommodate a mom with two small children.” Winnie Comfort of the New Jersey Judiciary, which administers that state’s bar exam, said there’s no way to verify Warren’s claim. Comfort said women have been taking the New Jersey bar exam since 1895, but she’s not aware their nursing habits were ever tracked.

At least one other person asserted that Warren’s claim was untrue:[2]

This morning three different law professors sent me this video of U.S. Senate Candidate and Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Warren claiming to be the first nursing mother to ever take the bar exam. One of the professors, who is a liberal academic, noted that she knows that claim to be untrue from personal experience. Some have claimed that Warren only was joking, but a full review of the longer video segment indicates that Warren was not joking when she made the claim.

The Warren campaign offered the following explanation[3]:

When asked how Warren knows that, her campaign said: “Elizabeth was making a point about the very serious challenges she faced as a working mom — from taking an all-day bar exam when she was still breast-feeding, to finding work as a lawyer that would accommodate a mom with two small children.”

STFU, Woman! I was in the very first co-ed Training Platoon for Army Basic Training back in the 70’s!

If YOU think dragging those BOYS around with us all day was FUN, you’ve got another thing coming!

You DO know that they’re grooming her to run against Hitlery in the Primary, do you not?

Caged Death Match. Bring It! LOL!

Ugh. I can’t stand moms who demand public affirmation for nursing their children. The only thing I’ve demanded for nursing all three through their first year is the formula cost equivalent in diamond stud earrings! But that’s my husband, not John Q. Public.

She’s not claiming to be the first native American woman to take the bar exam while breast feeding?

How does ANYONE know who is lactating at a bar exam?

Plenty of women nursing an older baby can go all day and then nurse their baby for night night only.

A two minute mile. Not bad.
But I’m so fast I can sharpen a lawn mower blade, and
while the motor’s hitting about 1200 RPMs,
AND while using a breast pump.
And I’m a guy.

Take heart. The '60s and '70s "activist" generation is fast disappearing into retirement homes. Moving up are the more pragmatic and cynical Reagan-era kids. Let's just hope they move up way fast.

Oui.

And, paraphrasing Ann Coulter, progressives lie instinctively; and, to them, dreaming up whoppers is a kind of sporting event.
