    Native American group: Elizabeth Warren 'better be able to defend' her ancestry claim.


    Ward Churchill Redux? -- A prominent Native American group says Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren had “better be able to defend” her past claims of being an Indian-American minority.

    The Democratic candidate is facing questions about her heritage following the revelation on Friday that she described herself as a Native American minority in professional law school directories during the 1980s and ’90s.

    “Once you put that down, you better be able to defend it,” Ray Ramirez of the Native American Rights Fund told The Daily Caller on Monday.

    Warren, who no longer publicly refers to herself as Native American, has disputed that she claimed Indian-American minority status then to give herself a professional advantage.

    Asked for evidence of her ancestry to back up the candidate’s past statements, a Warren spokeswoman told TheDC on Monday that the campaign is “working on digging up some sort of evidence to appease” inquirers.

    But the campaign hasn’t been able to immediately provide any documentation. The Boston Herald reported Friday that the Warren campaign said the “tales of Warren’s Cherokee and Delaware tribe ancestors have been passed down through family lore.”

    Ramirez said anyone who claims in writing to be a Native American should have some sort of supporting documentation. “If you’re a member of a federally recognized tribe, then that means you would have a tribal enrollment number,” he said.

    “If you just heard it from family members,” Ramirez added, ”and really have no documentation, I guess it’s best not to ever put that down”...

    Obama claimed he knew American Constitutional Law and that's a far more outrageous claim

    Here's the key to the story. This fake bitch is busted big time unless she can prove her creds.

    From Newsbusters:

    Warren has claimed she did not mention her Native American ancestry when applying at Harvard, an assertion corroborated by Harvard Law School professor Charles Fried, a former U.S. Solicitor General under Ronald Reagan and member of the appointing committee that recommended hiring Warren at Harvard Law.

    But this appears to be undermined by Warren being listed in the Association of American Law Schools' annual directory of minority law teachers from 1986 to 1995, as reported by both the Boston Herald, a conservative tabloid, and the left-leaning Boston Globe.

    "Despite claiming she never used her Native American heritage when applying for a job, Elizabeth Warren's campaign admitted last night the Democrat listed her minority status in professional directories for years when she taught at the University of Texas and the University of Pennsylvania," writes Herald reporter Chris Cassidy.

    According to the Boston Globe, "the listings were based on professors reporting that they were members of a minority group, the directory says."

    Harvard was desperate to diversify it seems. Wasn't one of Obama's mentors leading the charge for more African Americans at the time as well?

    Sorries, first coffee and my brain's not revved up yet.

    Lying about one's background is a good way to get folks on the warpath.
