Warren: I Was 'First Nursing Mother' to Take Bar Exam in NJ (carried it in a papoose?)
Weekly Standard ^ | 5/30/12 | Michael Warren

Posted on 05/30/2012 7:51:36 AM PDT by Clint N. Suhks

Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren claimed at an event in 2011 that she was the "first nursing mother" in New Jersey to take that state's bar exam. The Boston Herald reports:

“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.”

The Herald goes on to point out that women have been taking the bar exam in New Jersey since 1895, and a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Judiciary says she is "not aware" if the state tracked the nursing habits of those taking the bar.

The unverifiable claim is only the latest from Warren, who is challenging Republican Scott Brown for the U.S. Senate.

Warren has also said, both on the trail and in her professional life, that she descended from Cherokee Indians, but has been unable to back up this claim with any facts. Now, according to William Jacobson at the blog Legal Insurrection, a group of Cherokee people have started a website (and a Facebook page) called "Cherokees Demand Truth from Elizabeth Warren." The group's message to Warren is, "You claim to be Cherokee. You forget, it isn't who you claim, but instead, who claims you. We don't claim you!"

This woman is a distinguished grad in the Obamaloon/Clinton school of Lie-O-logy.

If we cannot win against such slime, we really don’t deserve to win at all.

So full of it, and not of mother’s milk either.

There were at least several before her, I’m sure, who did not make a public announcement of it.

Combining law school and a baby is hard for mother or father - combining law school and breast-feeding is a challenge but nobody is owed an easy path to “having it all.” Her baby certainly didn’t get the most optimum of infancies.

Die-hard leftists simply prefer empty and meaningless symbolism to truth, facts, and reality in general.

Warren is the perfect caricature of the clueless leftist who puts bogus feelings ahead of rational thought - could she possibly be any more phony and predictable?

I guess she would have sat a little farther away from the desk when she took the bar; otherwise I don’t see the difference from other women who take the bar. I wonder if any pregnant women have taken the bar in NJ?

Warren is patently laughable. Her devolution from a forceful, cogent (however liberally misguided) advocate for liberal ideology in pressing forward the "we all derive benefit from society - so what you earned isn't yours" crap, to an historical liar who took advantage of every claim, false or otherwise, that allowed her upgraded status, however achieved.

It is only with the flashlight of inspection shining its light on the kitchen roach lies she has concocted that we see more lies instead of scattering into obscurity like roaches often do. Well, it is to be expected. Democrats and liberals ALWAYS say "stick with the lie."

Well, that certainly qualifies her for the Senate.

Warren is an example of the Pelosi/Obama/Biden model of a shameless arrogant bloviating fabricator.

She is genuinely incapable of speaking the truth.

Plus she thinks the electorate consists of complete idiots (which, in the case of 90% of the democrats, is quite true).

Others taking bar exam may not feel like nursing their offsprings at the same time?

Of course it’s not true. As the Herald said, women have been taking the Bar in New Jersey since 1985. Do you mean to say that in the late 70s, when she took the Bar, she was the first woman to take the test who was breastfeeding.

By the way- I am the person who tipped off the Herald about this three days ago. I idly picked a Warren speech on Youtube, and her nursing claim popped up within the first couple of minutes.

Reporters should really check out all of her speeches on Youtube. No doubt there are dozens and dozens of whoppers by Warren.

After meeting some former classmates she was persuaded to study law,[10] and enrolled at the Rutgers School of Law–Newark, where she served as an editor of the Rutgers Law Review, and was one of two female summer associates at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft's Wall Street office.[13] She received her J.D. law degree in 1976. Shortly before graduating, she became pregnant with her second child, which made it difficult to pursue an active law career. Instead she worked from home, writing wills and doing real estate closings for walk-in clients.

At Cadwalader she earned “an astonishing amount of money” that she used to get braces, she said. By the time she received her degree in 1976 from Rutgers School of Law in Newark, New Jersey, she was expecting her second child, Alex. After Wall Street firms showed no interest in hiring a pregnant recent graduate, Warren said she worked from home, writing wills and doing real estate closings for “anyone who came in the door.”

How could she have been nursing a child when she found out she was pregnant just before she graduated and was still pregnant while looking for a job? Most people don't wait 9 months after graduation to take their bar exam and don't get jobs on Wall Street until they have passed the bar.

Actually, I believe that she was the interim drummer between Pete Best and Ringo but her work on the snare and cymbals was stiff and uninspired. However, she was unparalleled at the tom-tom.

So you walk into the NJ Bar Exam with a screaming newborn infant that you must breast feed?

And everyone there administering and taking the test is OK with that?

I can’t imagine making such a ridiculous claim.

Combining Human Beings with any life is difficult. This multimillionaire woman with a $900K a year income and multimillion dollar home is a true Obama clone. Claiming birth right to special benefits as a blond haired blue eyed woman is despicable.

The more despicable thing is that she may actually be elected by the sub-moronic idiot voters in Massachusetts.
