    Right there in the OP... "Cherokee tie found 5 generations ago - BostonHerald.com". OP tried to make it a slam but posted a link to a story that said there is a link... not to mention what a HUGE non story this is that the GOP is trying to fabricate into an issue.

    WHO

    CARES!

    And if for some ridiculous reason you decide that you do care... the link is stated right there in the OP. The rest is just whining, crying and name calling.

    The problem is there seems to be conflicting evidence:

    Despite a nearly three week flap over her claim of "being Native American," the progressive consumer advocate has been unable to point to evidence of Native heritage except for a unsubstantiated thirdhand report that she might be 1/32 Cherokee.

    Politics - Garance Franke-Ruta - Is Elizabeth Warren Native American or What? - The Atlantic

    Now back to your challenge...present the FACTS...please

    Of course disregard if you indeed 'don't care'...remember YOU raised the challenge...

    Warren's problem is that she is percieved as either a base, opportunistic liar or a joke. Neither one tends to get elected very easily.

    Keep in mind I typed percieved. Whether she actually IS a opportunistic liar or not is up for contention, but it does look like it.

    I'm guessing you missed this also:

    Correction: Because of a reporting error, a story in the May 1 Metro section and the accompanying headline incorrectly described the 1894 document that was purported to list Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great grandmother as a Cherokee. The document, alluded to in a family newsletter found by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, was an application for a marriage license, not the license itself. Neither the society nor the Globe has seen the primary document, whose existence has not been proven.

    For the record - Boston.com

    Now who was it you said was 'fabricating' an issue?

    If you are going to post a sarcastic comment you first need to have your facts straight. Warren helped establish the Consumer Financial Porection Bureau (CFPB) not the Consumer Protection Agency. Second she was so polarizing at that position that it was feared she would not get confirmed to the post. Last, THIS is why shes running for Senator and not head of the CFPB:

    I hear all this, you know, 'Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever.' No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own - nobody.
    You built a factory out there, good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads that the rest of us paid for. You hired workers that the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for.
    You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything in your factory and hire someone to protect against this because of the work the rest of us did.
    Warren seems to think government is entitled to whatever it wants to take. Shes seems to forgotten the factors of risk and the hard work of the person running a successful business. When you push yourself as a crusader you cant have any dirt in your background, it makes you look crooked. Thats why this is hitting home.

    So please tell me. What is the dirt in her background?

    I don't care about "dirt" in Warren's background. I do care that she exploited a minority status for years that actually...isn't. That is a fact. Her employers touted her minority status, both their advantage and hers. Also a fact.

    Oh please, you have got to be kidding. I guess the opposition should take what they can get and make a bunch of mountains out of the molehills. Y'all make yourself look foolish with all of that straw grasping.

    Scott Brown is a Wall St. Lacky who fears (as surroget for W.S.) for his job, & Warren's mission to keep Wall St. (making Sen. Brown the #1 resipiant of W.S. $$$$) from rapeing the consumer.
    Basicly it is the Swiftboating of Elizabeth Warren. Of course Warrens insistence that she will only talk about the issues doesn't help. We all know that when you ignor lies & misrepresntations, they grow.
    Is that what she did? Cuz...that sounds like more of an excuse than contrition. And people like you destroy any semblance of credibility when you so readily paint yourself as a mindless partisan hack. SO...Brown is connected to Wall Street...unlike...say...Obama? Hey..how about the tubby **** he replaced in Mass...he have any Wall Street connections? Or what about some of those other more prominent democrats...are they Wall Street knobgobblers?
