She’s a rookie, first run for office. As Howie C has suggested, Scott ran for selectman, then state Rep, then state Senator and finally Senator. Liz is jumping right in with U.S. Senator and yes she does have a bit of a record. But this is her first political run. If she had addressed it head on it would have died by now. The longer she avoids confronting it—and perhaps using her “Cherokee heritage” to get jobs—the tougher it will be in the election. I’m almost thinking of taking a Dem ballot (I am unenrolled) and voting for her opponent, Marisa DeFranco
She learned this from the Clintons; BJ could never be exposed to unscripted questions because of his girlfriends, and this became even more pressing after the Paula Jones/Monica thing. If they didn’t have a friendly media, every question would have been about what he did with Monica, or why he flashed Paula. In the end he paid $890K to settle the Jones lawsuit, and today many people act like it never happened (or try to cover up the crime - lewdness, sexual assault - albeit non-physical) or cover it up with “better” story about how Monica was a personal matter.
Just think about what anyone here would be charged with if we just pulled it out on some unsuspecting victim.
She’s not a vetted ‘American Indian’ yet she ‘allegedly’ checked the boxes off at Penn and Harvard. I don’t think she can even admit she’s not an Indian now....
There was talk about breaking Federal law by checking boxes to claim minority status - trouble for both the universities and her. I’ve looked around for any penalties but got lost in the government websites...anyone have a link?
If she admits to lying, or takes a DNA test to prove she’s lying I would think Harvard would need to Fire Her.
She’s going to run this right into the ground.
Marisa Wasserman-Shulz DeFranco?
Now, if Marisa Tomei were on the ballot....
