    Thank you. I would like to see something one way or another on this so all this silly carping can stop.

    That’s not surprising though, considering that a reference to Indian on the Census form didn’t start until 1880.
    and when another genealogist turns up records that show a possible Warren family connection to the Cherokee, Leahy's reply is “a well intentioned amateur genealogist with a creative imagination.” Sounds like a good description of Mr Michael Patrick Leahy except for the "well intentioned" bit
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    Seems as though the protesters weren't really committed.
    Plans for a Cherokee protest outside the arena fizzled out, with only three people braving a late morning downpour to blast Warren’s unsubstantiated claim to Native American heritage.

    I'm pretty big on Warren mostly because I'm a Nader fan and Nader is a fan of warren due to her tenacity in going after wall street shenanigans. Also a reason why I'm pissed at Elliot Spitzer who was a freegin' God in going after wall street criminals before he let his penis ruin his career.

    I will participate in your diversion for one post. The reason no one cared was that no one knew the real truth but rather what was reported. Given the statement by his wife:

    The McHenry, Ill. congressman and Laura Walsh released a joint statement Thursday…" Having resolved these issues together and cleared up these mistakes in private, we now agree that Joe is not and was not a deadbeat dad and does not owe child support."

    Since SHE stated ‘was not a deadbeat dad and does not owe child support’ we must wonder if he, in fact, did owe the sum claimed…

Warren answered, "No."
    Yet at some point in the late 1980s, when she was teaching law at the University of Pennsylvania, Warren began listing herself as Native American in a legal directory. A recently-unearthed article from a 1997 Fordham Law Review describes Warren as the Harvard Law School faculty's "first woman of color." "

    She never listed it when she applied. Regardless, this is a non issue and wont make or break her..She's got 95.77 percent of the delegate vote. There are bigger issues to deal with, like Scott Walkers staff stealing veterans funds, perhaps.
    I found this while looking for the results of the planned Cherokee protest at the dem convention in Springfield.

    This writer claims to be a Cherokee Indian person. I haven't checked with the genealogical society to see if that's true, but I'm going to take him at his word for now...LOL.
    Cherokee Protest at Democratic Convention is a Waste of Time.

    I don’t know if she has Cherokee blood or not, and frankly I’m not that concerned about it. For the rest of us Cherokees, this is u tsa ti gv wa du wi dv u tla go hu s di, much ado about nothing.

    The polls haven't moved one way or the other either, so maybe he's right about much ado about nothing and it's just more faux rightwing whining about.....well any and every thing...

    I mean, why would the polls move? This is a great great desperation move by the GOP. She didn't claim Cherokee status when applying in college. She didn't claim Cherokee status when she applied for law school. She didn't say anything about Cherokee status when running for office.

    This is just GOP opposition research digging decades into the past to try and find anything. And I mean ANYTHING they can attack her with. This is weaksauce to the max. Which is why the polls aren't moving on this.

    That Warren is not up by 10 in uber-lib Massachusetts is your polls moving

    But look at what you wrote ! Contrast this with the uncorroborated stories about Mitt Romney in high school supposedly cutting some kids hair !!

    Warren as an adult, just 15-20 years ago, misrepresenting herself. Corroborated.

    Romney in high school. 45 years ago. Not corroberated. In fact, denied by the "victim's" family.
