    reich wingers are gonna hate this:
    ... Tribal Councilor Bill John Baker is listed in the Cherokee Nation Registration as having one-thirty second degree of Cherokee blood. Former Principal Chief John Ross was listed at one-eighth Cherokee, while Principal Chief W.W. Keeler was also one-thirty second. Former Principal Chief Ross Swimmer is listed as one-quarter, while Wilma Mankiller was half Cherokee. Current Principal Chief Chad Smith is listed at half Cherokee, too. The Cherokee Nation does not have a blood quantum for citizenship or for holding office. Citizens only need to have a Cherokee blood ancestor listed on the Final Dawes Rolls.

    Her 'moccasins' have high heels. I doubt she has ever so much as camped outdoors. Hell...Ive got black blood and Injun blood in the genetic mix (along with pretty much every other race and nationality)...and a lot closer than 1/32. Im standard, real world native 'American'. Difference between her alleged link to Indians and my own is that mine didnt just come from "well...at some point I heard that my great great great great great gramma got knocked up by a buck many moons ago."

    Desperation. The worst smelling deoderant of all time.

    If only the GOP gave such a damn back when Republicans Ralph Reed & Jack Abramoff were robbing them blind a few years ago.
    Warren is outspending her democrat party challenger by ungodly amounts and is still facing a runoff. Its not 'all' that people care about...it just happens to be a topic, brought out by her own stupidity. How dare people actually comment on it...right?

    No, she's not facing a primary challenge

Those already in the race had little choice but to exit and dutifully, they did (the exception was DeFranco, apparently not the type to kowtow). In effect, Bay State voters were told that their opinion as to who should be their nominee was unwanted. The mandarins in Washington would choose for them."

    I BELIEVE this was brought up much earlier in this thread or not but either way it is irrelevent. Bill John Baker, John Ross, WW Keeler, Ross Swimmer, etal are NOT RUNNING FOR THE SENATE...

    very relevant
    your side insists she was not Cherokee enough at 1/32 to call herself someone of Indian heritage
    while the tribal leaders are found to have no more Cherokee blood than does Elizabeth Warren

    Unless I missed it she has yet to provide verifiable proof that she is in fact 1/32 Cherokee. It is this that is in question and not whether 1/32 is 'enough'. There has been alot of heresay and conflicting stories but nothing concrete by HER or anyone else. But I remain open for verifiable proof.

    1/32
    enough to be chief of the Cherokee nation
    but not enough to satisfy the reich wing that Elizabeth Warren misrepresented nothing
