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) (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 Warrens made about her lifes 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 states bar exam, said theres no way to verify Warrens claim. Comfort said women have been taking the New Jersey bar exam since 1895, but shes not aware their nursing habits were ever tracked.
At least one other person asserted that Warrens claim was untrue:
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:

(is this just a backdoor way of claiming she’s not lesbian?)
Al Gore invented the Internet. Elizabeth Warren invented the bar exam breast feed....
... on Mars.
Democrats believe that sanity is not a prerequisite for high office and that it actually is a detriment.
How old was her papoose?
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!
She needs to be painted as a white old female Obama.
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.
Shouldn’t that be “...first nursing mother OF COLOR....”
She’s not claiming to be the first native American woman to take the bar exam while breast feeding?
Liberals and lying: It’s their religion.
It’s always easy to tell if Fauxcahontas is lying... her lips are moving.
Liawatha strikes again!
Wow after practicing law for 15 years in Boston WITHOUT A LAW LICENSE, Fauxcahontas finally decides to get one?
The only way to unseat her is to run a fake cowboy against her.
She was elected.
So she was breast feeding. Most babies are on the bottle, too. Is she cracked or what??
She was the first man on the moon, too.
