Warren: I didnít know Harvard Law promoted my (Native American) lineage
Boston Herald ^ | 4/27/12 | Chabot

Elizabeth Warren said she had no idea until she read the Herald today her Native American heritage was touted by Harvard Law School as proof of their faculty’s diversity in the 1990s — a fact her rival wants her to apologize for.

“I think I read it on the front page of the Herald,” Warren said when asked about the issue.

“I don’t even remember,” she added when asked about a 1996 Harvard Crimson article that quoted a then-law school spokesman touting her minority status. “You’re trying to raise something from 15 years ago.”

Her GOP Senate rival, U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, said today the story raises “some questions that need to be answered.” Brown’s campaign went further calling on Warren to apologize for allowing Harvard to claim she was part Native American.

“For years, Harvard has claimed special minority status for Professor Elizabeth Warren as a member of a Native American tribe and their first minority hire,” said Jim Barnett, campaign manager for Brown. “That Warren allowed Harvard to hold her up as an example of their commitment to diversity in the hiring of historically disadvantaged communities is an insult to all Americans who have suffered real discrimination and mistreatment, and Warren should apologize for participating in this hypocritical sham.”

Warren, who has not provided any documentation on her Native American heritage, said she is “proud” of her lineage.

Did someone put “Native American” on a Law School application? Because the Crimson says the Law School is the source.

And Warren doesn’t pay her fair share.She’s ADMITTED that she doesn’t check the box on her state tax return with which one can volunteer to pay a tax rate that’s higher than what’s required by law.She’s part of “the one percent”,is given an easy opportunity to pay her fair share and she says “no”.

Since she is a “lawyer”, she may have gotten confused when somebody accused her of being a member of the Turkey Buzzard clan.

Yeah, it's "we're". There's a motorcycle club named that, but they spell it "Fugawi":
