Warren Attempts to Whitewash Her Not-So-White Lie

Caught red-handed, the Demo presidential hopeful finally apologizes for phony ancestry claims.

Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has apologized for falsely claiming Native American ancestry. Of course, she waited until just a few hours before Donald Trump’s State of the Union so that tidbit would be buried under coverage of that event. Last week, she quietly gave a private mea culpa to the chief of the Cherokee Nation after her pathetic DNA test stunt last fall revealed she was possibly approximately 1/1024th Native American. So why bring it up again this week?

The Washington Post, of all places, obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request a 1986 registration card for the Texas Bar Association on which Warren listed her race as “American Indian.” The Post reports, “Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.”

“I can’t go back,” Warren told the Post. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.” The real harm is that she lied on a bar application. What will the penalty be?

Clearly, she’s hoping this controversy will be a distant memory by the time the 2020 primaries kick off. Her fellow Democrats may leave the issue alone given their convoluted handling of “identity” issues, though voters may not be so forgiving. Trump would love to square off against “Pocahontas” in the presidential election, but her viability just took a huge hit.
