Nonsense. If she believed she was Native American because her family told her so, and stated it as fact, then "she knew" that she was wrong is nonsense. As far as Elizabeth Warren understood, her family and by extension her had NA roots dating back hundreds of years. That's no different than a person believing they're Scottish because their name is Smythe, only to later find out they're Irish. It's really not that big of a deal. Try harder.This is something she knew was wrong to do at the time, but she got away with it and rode with the gain.
