Elizabeth Warren: I was the first nursing mother to take the bar exam in New Jersey, you know

posted at 4:41 pm on May 30, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Legal Insurrection. As you might expect, New Jersey bar administrators have no idea what she’s talking about. Maybe she meant to say she’s the first fake Native American nursing mother to take the bar exam in New Jersey?

Because that might well be true.

“I was the first nursing mother to take a bar exam in the state of New Jersey,” Warren told an audience at the Chicago Humanities Festival in 2011, in a video posted on the CHF website. When asked how Warren knows that, her campaign said: “Elizabeth was making a point about the very serious challenges she faced as a working mom — from taking an all-day bar exam when she was still breast-feeding, to finding work as a lawyer that would accommodate a mom with two small children.”

Winnie Comfort of the New Jersey Judiciary, which administers that state’s bar exam, said there’s no way to verify Warren’s claim. Comfort said women have been taking the New Jersey bar exam since 1895, but she’s not aware their nursing habits were ever tracked.

Elsewhere in 0/32 Cherokee news, Legal Insurrection also notes the appearance of a bold new band of truthtellers — “Cherokees Demand Truth from Elizabeth Warren,” led by the same Cherokee genealogist who called Warren out two weeks ago. 156 members and counting:

Many wonder why we Cherokees are so insistent on Elizabeth Warren coming clean about her false claims of Cherokee ancestry. This is not a political issue to us. We don’t care if Elizabeth Warren is a Democrat, Republican, or an Independent. We do care, though, if she goes around claiming to be Cherokee and has tried to benefit from that claim. Some people might not realize there are only three federally recognized Cherokee tribes in the United States, but there are more than 200 groups who fraudulently claim to be Cherokee tribes. While the federally recognized tribes have very specific criteria their members must meet in order to be enrolled or registered, there is no consistent criterion for membership into the fraudulent groups. Many members of these fraudulent groups base their claim of Cherokee ancestry on the same thing Ms. Warren bases hers on…family lore…

We have researched Ms. Warren’s ancestry in the line she claims to be Cherokee through, as well as researched the collateral lines connected to that family. There is absolutely no indication of her having anything other than Caucasian ancestors. Though Ms. Warren’s ancestors did move into the areas that later became Oklahoma, they arrived at the same time many other non-Indian families arrived – when the land was going to be opened up and they thought they could get free or cheap land from the Indians. Ms. Warren’s ancestors were not Cherokees and neither is she. We, as Cherokees, cannot allow Ms. Warren to continue on with her false claims. If we allow someone as high profile as her to get away with it, then everyone else will expect a free pass as well.

Warren’s camp insists that she’s done talking about this and so far voters have shrugged at the storyline, but it’s not over yet. Go read Michael Patrick Leahy’s attempt to sort through the timeline at Harvard Law on Warren’s hiring and when members of the faculty might have learned of her “minority” status. An interesting contrast: Robert Clark, the former dean of HLS, says he was told by members of his own family that he was part Choctaw but he never thought to claim that status professionally because he never verified it. Quote: “It was just family lore, and more importantly, I had no identification whatsoever with the Choctaw community.” Go figure that a law professor might insist on hard evidence before asserting a professional credential.

So she got a special accomodation from the proctors on her Bar Exam in addition to all of the Native American Affirmative Action goodies because she is 0/23 Cherokee.

Maybe there are special 0/32 Cherokee accomodations as well. After all, think of the language barrier!

Her first child was delivered by tribal midwives while she took the SAT. Republican proctors tried to nullify the exam; Warren successfully defended the validity of her scores in a landmark legal struggle, thus giving birth to an obsession with social justice that has never been aborted.

The lefty politicians to try to identify with every American sub-group possible. Most of us are okay with simply being an American and perhaps loving our home town and families — having no need to brag about much else.

Next headline from the warren campaign, “Elizabeth Warren produces more ear wax than any Harvard educated non-GLBT native American who has ever run for elected office while nursing a handicapped koala bear.”

Why, the courage of this groundbreaking woman is simply breathtaking! I am about to swoon at the very thought!

The point of it all. Even if Warren is part Cherokee and believed she is part Cherokee, she trumped the system and the people that she supposedly stands up for. A true loser.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder-it seems to be a requirement for being in the stalin wing of the democrat party. she’s never giving it up- as i said before. her sickness won’t allow it. her own party is going to have to club her like a seal to get her out of the race if she continues down this path- which she will. she doesn’t care how much damage she causes her party or how much she insults actual cherokees. it’s all about liz.

Or is this more evidence that she is some type of disadvantaged “victim” — and not the Harvard-tenured lawyer with a net worth estimated at around $15 million, who has been a presidential advisor and is now a U.S. Senate candidate, and who is ludicrously trying to pretend that she is part of the 99%, instead of one of the elites?

Some way must be found to keep her in the public eye. She has single-handedly destroyed the credibility of the Harvard Law faculty, undermined the credibility of racial quota checking, and highlighted liberal hypocrisy generally. Not to mention the unending supply of set-ups for punch lines.
