    Scott Brown tried to win the election on being Scott Brown, not the issue of her Native American ancestry or not.

    That said, he did hit her with it a few times, in an ad and in a debate. Sorry, but that's politics. If she can't handle it, she needs to find another vocation.

    Who gives a damn? Why does anyone's genetic past mean anything to who or what they are today?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Greetings, tres borrachos.

    Mine was "who cares?" which sums up my total interest very accurately! Now the candidate that tells us his great-granddaddy was abducted by extraterrestrials, who experimented on him, would be a different matter altogether - he would confirm a suspicion I have about most of them in DC today, since no one could be as out of touch with what the public wants unless his story was true! :

    If she got financial benefit from her claim, yet cannot back up her claim. She should be compelled to pay it back.

    She is the one that made it an issue.

    I know, I was just being hyperbolic. He couldn't beat Elizabeth Warren, so he became a carpetbagger in your state and still lost. So he went back to Fox News.
    That said, he did hit her with it a few times, in an ad and in a debate. Sorry, but that's politics. If she can't handle it, she needs to find another vocation.
    I am sure she can handle it just fine.

    She responded with her own ad with the message “Scott Brown can continue attacking my family, but I’m going to keep fighting for yours." and went on to win the election against Brown. I'd say she handled it just fine. In fact she's successfully swatted aside this "scandal" and the discussion has pretty much been relegated to debate forums only.

    Liberals usually are. For people who don't want race to matter, they spend all their time pointing it out.

    Warren responded she was recruited for the positions and did not "apply" for them; and for the most part, her record did not indicate any identification as part of a minority group:
    The Globe obtained a portion of Warren's application to Rutgers, which asks if prospective students want to apply for admission under the school's Program for Minority Group Students. Warren answered "no."

    For her employment documents at the University of Texas, Warren indicated that she was "white."

    But Penn's 2005 Minority Equity Report identified her as the recipient of a 1994 faculty award, listing her name in bold to signify that she was a minority. The Herald has twice quoted Charles Fried, the head of the Harvard appointing committee that recommended Warren for her position in 1995, saying that the Democratic candidate's heritage didn't come up during the course of her hiring. "It simply played no role in the appointments process," he said. "It was not mentioned and I didn't mention it to the faculty."

    The Herald later quoted Fried, a former U.S. Solicitor General under President Ronald Reagan, saying, "I can state categorically that the subject of her Native American ancestry never once was mentioned."
    So while Sen. Elizabeth Warren has claimed Native American heritage, it does not appear she used her ethnic background for career advancement purposes to any significant degree.
