Brown calls on Warren to reveal law school records
Boston Herald ^ | 5/8/12 | Hillary Chabot

Posted on 05/08/2012 12:20:20 PM PDT by raccoonradio

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown demanded that Elizabeth Warren release her law school applications and personnel files today, saying questions about Warren’s Native American heritage mean she must answer, “whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a professor.”

The demand comes two days after the Massachusetts Republican Party called for Harvard to investigate potential “academic fraud” committed by Warren.

“Serious questions have been raised about the legitimacy of Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Native American ancestry and whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a college professor. Her changing stories, contradictions and refusal to answer legitimate questions have cast doubt on her credibility and called into question the diversity practices at Harvard,” said Brown in a statement.

He went on to say: “The best way to satisfy these questions is for Elizabeth Warren to authorize the release of her law school applications and all personnel files from the various universities where she has taught. I have released hundreds of pages of confidential employment records relating to my 32-year career in the National Guard, and I would encourage Professor Warren to do the same with respect to her personnel records and previous applications. As candidates for high public office, we have a duty to be transparent and open and not hide behind a wall of silence in the midst of public controversy.”

Warren said she learned of her Cherokee and Delaware roots through family lore, and a genealogist said he found ties that could mean Warren in 1/32 Cherokee, but Harvard Law School professors said Warren’s Native American lineage was not a factor when they hired her.

Brown’s demands come as Bay State Democrats blasted him for setting up a secretive “New York City finance committee,” saying the undercover committee helps him raise money from big business honchos and furthers his ties to Wall Street.

“Republican Senator Scott Brown is on Wall Street begging industry execs in New York City and delivering for them in Washington DC,” said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair John Walsh in a statement. “Brown has a clear record of putting the interests of big banks and Wall Street ahead of Massachusetts families and now he is refusing to come clean about who is on his New York City Finance Committee and what they’ve been promised in return for raising campaign cash.”

A Brown spokesman told the Herald it was a one-time fundraising committee, but did not further explain who was in the committee or when it was created. He again declined to answer questions today, instead releasing the statement from Brown that shifts the focus to likely Warren’s Native American heritage.

Brown’s request for these transcripts is just “code language” intimating that Indians are too stupid to graduate school, or something.

In NC you need to have a minimum of 1/16th Cherokee ancestry to be considered a tribal member. 1/32nd doesn’t cut it, apparently. So why should Harvard grant her status if the Cherokee’s won’t?

Did she receive a tuition break for being a minority or any grants to attend school?
