    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Elizabeth Warren can’t escape her Cherokee heritage controversy even at this gathering of loyal Democrats, as a contingent of skeptical American Indian delegates — including the great-grandson of Geronimo — are inviting Warren to a meeting tomorrow to explain her ancestry claims....

    Harlyn Geronimo, the great-grandson of the legendary Apache warrior, said he didn’t know the details of Warren’s claims but wanted to make sure she didn’t try to “take advantage” of her Cherokee claims. Warren has offered no proof of her ancestry but says she is relying on “stories” relayed to her by her family.

    “I wouldn’t vote for anybody that is being dishonest, and it’s unfair to our people,” he said.

    The Warren campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

    Elizabeth Warren will tell the truth. She had a family rumor and used that to advance herself and get invited to parties. Unlike Ward Churchill, she had no real malicious intent. She was just a silly girl who had been plain jane and unpopular all her life. This was a way to reinvent herself. When even a specious claim of indian ancestry didn't help, she stopped making it.

    This seems like a silly controversy to me.
