Warren Acknowledged Heritage ‘After’ Hiring

BY:

Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren admitted Wednesday that she told the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Law School that she was a Native American—a claim that has no documented basis in fact. According to the Washington Post:

“At some point after I was hired by them, I … provided that information to the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard,’’ she said in a statement to the Boston Globe. “My Native American heritage is part of who I am, I’m proud of it and I have been open about it.’’

Warren previously told reporters that she had not authorized Harvard to list her as a Native American professor. Her ancestry, she said, came out in informal conversations with other faculty. She said she was unaware of being listed as a minority until she read about it in the Boston Herald. …

A campaign official told the Globe that Warren had forgotten details about her past employment and was making this statement now because staffers had thoroughly reviewed her records.
