    Irrelevant to proving why she was hired. Keep trying Hays.

    If she's not a native American, then to what nation is she native?

    Frankly I can only see this being an issue IF it demonstrates intent to mislead for personal gain by Warren.

    Thus far I haven't seen anything that proves such occurred.

    Not really a question for me. I find the entire thing to be more silliness from the supposedly post-racial GOP.

    As noted earlier in this thread, the issue would be more useful to Hillary than to the Repubs.

    A difficult aspect of the issue was highlighted by the WaPo Fact Checker.

    ". . . Nonetheless, Fried showed signs of acquiescing around the time that he joined the faculty appointments committee. The Harvard Law Record asked him in a 1992 Q&A, “How aggressively is the appointments committee pursuing women and minority faculty members?” Fried replied, “Very.”


    When asked by the Record whether he believed in affirmative action, Fried replied, “Yes.”


    Harvard hired Warren for a temporary position in 1992, and the law school reported a Native American woman on its federally mandated affirmative-action report. The program did not report a Native American woman for 1993 through 1995, during which time Warren was back at Penn — she had spurned Harvard’s initial offer of a tenured position, according to a Globe report. . . .

    Exactly. If there is an integrity issue it happened generations back.

    Still can't find proof that Elizabeth Warren was hired because she was Native American? This is nothing more than circumstantial evidence. Hardly smoking gun evidence that Warren herself wasn't picked because of her abilities. Keep trying though. Maybe if you throw enough articles out, something will stick.

The bottom line is that while republicants constantly lie and/or flip-flop, demorats simply occasionally misspeak and/or evolve to a different policy position.
    Well, what I'm curious about now is - back when Ted Cruz was risking a government shut down in order to vote on Obamacare, he was 'holding America hostage', 'acting like a terrorist', etc. Now that ole Warren is doing the same - is Elizabeth Warren a terrorist?
