Federal Criminal Code ^ | various | Nameless Federal Bureaucrat(s)

Posted on 05/31/2012 9:35:58 AM PDT by FormerACLUmember

Elizabeth Warren faces 5 years in jail and a fine for her fake minority status, used to get jobs and tenure.

Federal law provides in 18 U.S. Code § 1001:

(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully–

(1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact;

(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or

(3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry;

shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years.

Give it up. Those laws ONLY hold to Americans
who are not in Congress or the DNC and do not have
high cheekbones or melanin adequate for DOJ standards.

I presume there’s a statute of limitations on that. She got her job years ago.

I’ll believe it when she actually walks through the door to the jail. Until then I won’t hold my breath!

I’ll have to go check the law again, but I believe there is a twist regarding racial classification. If memory serves me correctly, it is illegal for an employer or government to ask someone to ‘prove’ a minority status they list, the law allows self-identification.

Where this may work, however, is if she claimed actual tribal membership and received any benefit thereof. There is a difference between claiming minority status as a Native American and claiming membership in a specific tribe or nation.

For example, I am a member of the Pottawatomie nation and I have an identification card and letter verifying my status as a recognized Native American citizen member of that group. That is a legal membership of that nation which is a recognized entity.

That is different than just self-identifying on an application as Native-American.

Alas, race is specifically “what you deem yourself to be” under federal law.

You could check African American, if inclined.

I always check “Native American” and fill out “Levi” for tribe on all that crap.

I really, really, would like to see her charged, tried and convicted and imprisoned as an example. The harm her status as a Harvard Professor, bolstered by her false claim of minority, have immeasurably harmed society.

She has consistently said that capitalists have benefited by the public support given to them. I claim her achievement in the public arena was advanced by lies against the public - for public advancement by deceit and unwarranted support.

A civil rights issue in my book. One that transcends statutes of limitation. How is unduly claiming and profiting from dubious civil rights minority status any different from any other civil rights crime?

Dr. Leakey says we all came out of Africa - over 70,000 years ago. Technically, if you’re a subscriber to generally accepted human migration, everyone is African and we are definitely American . .

Totally unenforceable where these quota systems are concerned.

Candidates are told to “self-identify”, and she self-identified. “Prove that I’m not!” Who is going to
do it.

Silver lining is that the option is there for all of us to start doing it and to thus force a Cloward-Piven collapse of affirmative action.

How much do minorities get penalized for claiming "white status"?

White status - what a hilarious concept.

But her mother told her she was Cherokee! It's family lore!

That's all she needs to let herself off from this.

Don’t tell Darrell Issa, he still has five months of empty threats of a contempt citation for Eric Holder on his schedule.

John Kerry’s patronymic grandfather changed his name from “Kohn” to “Kerry”. He later blew his brains out in the mens room of the Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston.

This would be very hard to enforce. As I recall, there were 2 Supreme Court rulings that established that there is no verifiable basis for racial identification, and people can claim to be whatever race they deem themselves to be.
(I’ve used this on occassion to claim my race is “elven”.)

With Warren, there is a chance, because she specifically claimed to be Cherokee, which is a tribe and not a race. But still, enforcement is a long shot.

” Don’t tell Darrell Issa, he still has five months of empty threats of a contempt citation for Eric Holder on his schedule.”

Boehner has been the one responsible for stalling the investigation. He recently came out and denied it, as the press got ahold of it.

“knowingly and willfully”

That’s her out, she’ll continue to claim that she was told this by her family and sincerely believed them.
