Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren Offers Latest Version of Debunked 'Elopement' Story In New Book
Posted on 04/24/2014 6:06:39 PM PDT by george76
In her new autobiography, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reiterates claims that her parents "eloped" despite the existence of a marriage certificate and contemporaneous press accounts of their wedding.
Although the subject caused her a major headache during her 2012 campaign for Senate, Warren devotes less than 1,500 words in the book to her claims of Native American heritage.
Regarding the broader claim of Native American heritage, Warren's standard of proof in the book is simply "family folklore," unsubstantiated assertions made to her by family members about Cherokee and Delaware ancestors.
Despite a protacted public debate on the subject and investigations by numerous experts into the matter, there remains no credible evidence that Warren has Native American heritage.

Family folklore is fine. Using this fimsy evidence to gain special ‘diversity benefits’ is another matter altogether.
Fauxchahontas f lies again! This beyotch has the intellect of a PB&J!
She could get her DNA done - cost around $250.00
I did this. I think she ought to be able to afford it - IF she really wants to know.
At some point she’s going to claim that her family was wiped out by blankets infected with smallpox.
Apparently Massachussetts voters have no standards when it comes to the integrity of their elected officials. They’d probably elect drunken womanizer who would abandon somebody and leave them to die.
They’ll elect anyone with a good ‘story’.
And the MSM are pimping the Folklore Fraud as presidential material.
Boston's newspaper column writer and radio host Howie Carr agrees, and has challenged her:

There is only one way to settle once and for all the question of whether the fake Indian is or is not a real Indian. She needs to take a DNA test.
I dare you, Sen. Warren. It only costs about $200. If you insist, Ill pay for it. In fact, Ill take one myself. Its easy. Just swab the inside of your mouth. Check my photo on the left, Ill show you how to do it.
No more of this fact-free nonsense about your high cheekbones, or these ridiculous fables about your parents eloping to escape the racism of the Indian Territory when they actually returned to their hick hometown that same evening for a traditional wedding party.
It is not just the MSM. Some lib professionals I know really like her. Hillary, without the baggage and mileage.
I don’t think she has the oomph.
No it didn't. There was plenty of well deserved snarking from conservatives but the MSM couldn't care less - and she won by 8 points against the incumbent. If she runs for POTUS in 16 it will be no more of an issue than Baraq Obama's bogus birth certificate(s).
“Politics is the last refuge of a scoundrel.”
wWth some exceptions....who usually get run out of town because they’re not crooked enough.
It’s cheaper than that. Only $99.00 at the each of the 3 main DNA genealogy companies.

Did Crockajawea happen to mention in her bio whether she was ever licensed to practice law in Massachusetts?
She represented some clients while at Haaaahvahd but the bar has no record of her.
“The marriage of Donald Herring and Miss Pauline Reed, two of Wetumka’s most popular young people, came as a surprise to many of their friend when they returned from Holdenville late Saturday afternoon and announced their marriage,”
To be honest, that sounds like an elopement to me - the marriage “came as a surprise” to their friends, they announced it only after they were wed, etc.
Which even if these assertions turned out to be true, makes her 1/32 Native American at most, which still doesn't make it true that she's a "minority" and "woman of color" or of Native American "heritage." This is ridiculous and false any way you try to spin it.
I thought the test can’t detect the amount that she is claiming.
His Wiki is a delight, especially this part:
On July 24, 2007, the University regents voted seven to two to uphold all seven of the findings of research misconduct, overruling the recommendation of Privilege and Tenure panel that two be dismissed. By a vote of eight to one, the regents determined to fire Churchill.
The next day, Churchill filed a lawsuit in state court claiming that the firing was retribution for his expressing politically unpopular views. The jury in Churchill's suit for reinstatement weighed the university's claims of academic misconduct per jury instructions it received in the case. As Stanley Fish said, "It was the jurys task to determine whether Churchills dismissal would have occurred independently of the adverse political response to his constitutionally protected statements." The jury found that the alleged misconduct would not have led to Churchill's firing and rejected the university's academic misconduct claim as the grounds for dismissal. On April 1, 2009, a Colorado jury found that Churchill had been wrongly fired, and awarded $1 in damages. As one of the jurors said later in a press interview, "it wasn't a slap in his face or anything like that when we didn't give him any money. It's just that [Churchill's attorney] David Lane kept saying this wasn't about the money, and in the end, we took his word for that." Churchill's counsel asked Chief Judge Larry J. Naves of the Denver District Court to order reinstatement in light of the verdict.
On July 7, 2009, Judge Naves found that the defendants (university) were entitled to quasi-judicial immunity as a matter of law, vacated the jury verdict and determined that the University did not owe Churchill any financial compensation. Naves denied Churchill's request for reinstatement at CU.
Tears in my eyes. From laughing.
She must be running for president, otherwise why would she be writing an autobiography? I might pick up a copy for those nights when I have trouble falling asleep.
At least not only can I prove my Native American ancestry, I look Indian. Sadly she looks entirely European, not Native American
Lying and deception is a resume enhancer for liberals. We just need to get over it, it isn’t going to change.
You can say the same about the electorate of this country who elected Barack Obama twice.
This is Lizzy’s tryout attempt to be Hillary’sVP.
You might be right. I know there aren’t many samples to compare to, as many Indians want no part in it, from what I’ve read on the forums at 23andMe & FamilyTreeDNA.
How can she still have a political career, or any real career? She should have been immediately fired from Harvard for appropriating benefits intended for a genuine Native American. By way of apologizing, she should have taken a job cleaning toilets on an Indian reservation.
Instead, she has paid no price at all, and is being considered for the American presidency.
I can't quite believe it.
I think the rule is that you have to be an 1/8th Native American before any Federal bennies kick in or a tribe votes you in as a member. Not likely these days with all that casino money floating around.
To be honest, the few posts of yours I've read sound like the opinions of a Leftist.
Voicing the devil's advocate position is actually advocating for the devil.
I got your number.
