BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren says she didn't reveal until this week that she told past employers about her Native American ancestry because she needed more time to recall actions and events of years ago.

In an interview on Friday with The Associated Press, Warren sought to address questions raised about her heritage, which has not been documented. She also explained why she had not revealed that she told Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania of her heritage.

The Harvard Law School professor said she and her brothers were told as children their parents were forced to elope because their father's family objected to his mother having some Native American ancestors.

As many times as she tells it, it will chnage. But according to the DBM and Gov. Deval Patrick (O’s speech writer), MA voters DO NOT CARE.”

Scott Brown better be working while all this is going on.

There is also something going on tonight to allow another Dem candidate on primary ballot IF she gets 15%. Hopefully she has achieved that level of anti-Lie-a-awatha vote

She made the classic liberal mistake of believing that, as a Democrat, any crap that flies out of her mouth would never be questioned. Sorry, that only works for Kennedys and Democrat presidents.

I don’t need a couple of weeks to remember the truth.

I would think someone would need a couple of weeks to remember their lies.

Excellent.
I’m totally impressed how conservative media is smacking her down.
I’d love to see someone find out if her adult children used the Native American ruse for college and job applications.

Well, maybe she is correct. Maybe lying runs in the family.
