Warren admits listing herself as Native American at Harvard, Penn

posted at 12:41 pm on May 31, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Looks like the stonewalling strategy has failed for Elizabeth Warren, and now more questions about her honesty and integrity will arise.  The Boston Globe reports today that Warren has reversed her earlier position of ignorance on her listing as a Native American, admitting that she listed herself at both Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania after being hired:

Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren acknowledged for the first time late Wednesday night that she told Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania that she was Native American, but she continued to insist that race played no role in her recruitment.

“At some point after I was hired by them, I . . . provided that information to the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard,’’ she said in a statement issued by her campaign. “My Native American heritage is part of who I am, I’m proud of it and I have been open about it.’’

Warren’s statement is her first acknowledgment that she identified herself as Native American to the Ivy League schools. While she has said she identified herself as a minority in a legal directory, she has carefully avoided any suggestion during the last month that she took further actions to promote her purported heritage.

When the issue first surfaced last month, Warren said she only learned Harvard was claiming her as a minority when she read it in the Boston Herald.

Warren’s new statement came after the Globe asked her campaign about documents it obtained Wednesday from Harvard’s library showing that the university’s law school began reporting a Native American female professor in federal statistics for the 1992-93 school year, the first year Warren worked at Harvard, as a visiting professor.

Earlier, I wrote that having the Boston Globe on the case was bad news for Warren.  The campaign could no longer ignore the story as an artifact of the Boston Herald, which first started asking questions about Warren’s long-time identification as a Native American at Harvard, and Harvard Law’s promotion of the pale Warren as their sole “woman of color” on the faculty.  When the Globe began digging up the contradictions, Warren had no option but to respond to it.

The attention to Warren’s claims in the Globe isn’t restricted to the news section, either.  Local columnist Brian McGrory blasted Warren for pretending that a claim to an employer of membership in a protected EEOC class was only for social interaction.  This issue may not be as newsworthy as taxes and economic policy, but integrity matters in public officials — and McGrory writes that this is entirely about integrity:

Of course, the stubbornly mediocre economy, fair taxes, the partisan rift that is swallowing Washington whole, these are all critical issues that should be discussed and debated almost every day in this US Senate campaign.

But let’s not ever lose sight of one true thing in this or any other political race: The most important issues are the candidates themselves, and more specifically, their integrity, credibility, and authenticity.

Which is why Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee ancestry, almost certainly declared on federal forms by Warren herself and used by a pair of Ivy League universities to tout their diversity efforts, all without an ounce of proof that she has a drop of Indian blood flowing through her veins, matters. It matters a great deal.

Speaking as adults here, the elephant in the room is whether Warren wrongly claimed minority status to improve her prospects for being hired to teach at Harvard Law School, and before that, the University of Pennsylvania Law School. The more obvious question might even be, why else would she have done it? The public utterances of this uncommonly accomplished and otherwise eloquent candidate have so far ranged from lunacy to comedy, highlighted by her explanation about wanting to “meet others like me” and her recollection of an aunt describing her grandfather’s “high cheekbones.”

Now that Warren has admitted to telling a lie about how she got listed at both Harvard and Pennsylvania, the integrity questions will only intensify.  At some point, Massachusetts Democrats will start calling Vicki Kennedy for the Toricelli option.

So, being Native American is like being gay……it’s a choice?

ted c on May 31, 2012 at 12:45 PM

dude. she’s totally cribbing the “gay” strategy. First she used the Cherokee Indians, now she’s stealing the gay thing. How’s that feel for you, gehys??? You say gay is genetic, you were born that way, or something, and Native Americans say that being “Native American” is genetic (a valid argument), but she merely says its a choice–one that she “self identifies with” and has “always been proud of.” Moreover, she “outed herself” after she was hired.

sound familiar>???

For someone who’s supposed to be brilliant, there’s a lot of things that relate directly to her life that she’s ignorant about.

You would think.

Lizzy Warren’s claim to fame is that she shone a light on lenders who were lying to consumers and ripping them off. She recommended many new laws and regulations to make people who lend money be more honest. And, for the last 25 years she has made her living teaching the law.

Seems to me it’s pretty important for someone like that to not tell lies.

I think the pressure of the campaign is getting to Warren and causing her to say all these goofy outrageous things. Imagine how she’d pop like a balloon caving to pressure from Harry Reidiculous if she actually got elected. Lack of integrity is exactly what the Dembeciles want in their senators–makes them much more easy to control and keep in line.

stukinIL4now on May 31, 2012 at 1:05 PM

I know we talk funny down here in Texas compared to those clear speaking Hawvawd folks….. but I am plumb impatient, (chagrined?) that whenever (which is everytime) Warren reverts to her talking point answer about being concerned about ending the screwing that home owners have been taking in Massachusetts for years…….. the reporter’s follow ups don’t include:

Are you then indicting Senator Ted Kennedy, President Obama, Governor Patrick, Senator Kerry, President Clinton for stepping on the necks of Commonwealth citizens all these years just to benefit the rich?

But no, once Fauxahontas ducks and parries with her talking point. they just keep asking the same question. What am I missing here… if this citizen abuse has been going on for years — guess what — Massachusetts has been a Blue state for years, and the White House has been occupied by a Dem for 11½ years out of the last 19 years!

Am I missing something here?

Why, to get herself published in the Indian cookbook, of course.

petefrt on May 31, 2012 at 1:07 PM

Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has the pertinent part of the federal statute in his post. Apparently it’s a crime to knowingly make a false statement or representation about one’s ethnic identity in those federal diversity reports.

Harvard filed those reports showing Warren as their Native American hire. Harvard knows who provided them with that information, and it wasn’t Warren’s Aunt Bee. Warren had to admit the obvious (that she is the one who made the claim), or else Harvard would be on the hook for the misrepresentation. But a few weeks ago, Warren told everybody that she first learned Harvard was claiming her as a minority when she read about it in the paper.

Warren didn’t learn the key lesson of the Watergate scandal: it’s not the (original) crime, it’s the cover-up that always gets you. All Warren had to do to avoid liability for the original lie was claim that she had actually believed her “family lore” and therefore had not “knowingly” made a misrepresentation to Harvard. But Warren just kept lying and now she’s done. Harvard can’t cover for her without causing trouble for themselves, and they’ve apparently decided she’s not worth it.

Game over, Lizzie. But thanks for playing.

I am confused. She worked at Penn first and after being hired told Penn she is part Cherokee. Okay, I’m skeptical but I’ll buy it to this point. So she goes on to Harvard and probably did so after seeing how well the whole Native-American gig was working for her at Penn and still didn’t mention it to Harvard until after being hired?

She seems to be trying to deflect from the inconvenient fact that she’s in no way, no 1/32nds part anything, by making it appear that all these questions are an attack on her tribe family:

Growing up, my mother and my grandparents and my aunts and uncles often talked about our family’s Native American heritage. As a kid, I never thought to ask them for documentation – what kid would? – but that doesn’t change the fact that it is a part of who I am and part of my family heritage.

In other words, that’s what they told her and that makes it true for her and she’s sticking with it. The veracity of her Family Lore™, is not the issue– as Warren would have it– but the decent intentions and integrity of her family. Bunch of meanies really are attacking her family when they question her Cherokee claim. Sort of a straw family argument, really. We can grant that Grammy was a nice old lady, but innocently clueless. Warren’s clueless, too, but not in the same way. And not innocent.

I was thinking of a full-word rhyme, not just the final syllable. I set high standards for my throwaway rhymes.

The real problem is that “ax” can rhyme with a plural ending in “s” (“40 [noun]s”), so I’d have to find a collective noun whose plural does not end in s, but which has an “-ock” sound.

Heinz Kerry’s description of herself as African American at a 1993 gathering of the Distinguished Daughters of Pennsylvania caused a “storm of criticism” from local black leaders, the Baltimore Sun noted on Tuesday.

…but you know….it doesn’t matter.

Well if she loses she can always use her heritage as a fall back again, she can work at a casino.

So, what she’s saying is, she lied on her resume.

That got a coach fired at Notre Dame.

Apparently doesn’t seem to be a disqualifier for US Senate in Massachusetts.

Fortunately, I think Scott Brown has the acumen to be the guy people vote FOR rather than against.

Now she just needs to admit that she’s a lying, opportunistic sack of socialist crap. That won’t make it ok, but at least it’ll help clear some of that fart smell from the air around her.

Given that Harvard doesn’t often hire non-minority Rutgers grads, it is doubtful that she only told them after being hired (particularly when she was tagged with that status when on the visiting faculty gig).
Now Brown just has to keep pushing to get the applications and associated materials released…showing she claimed it before beign hired. Then he needs to hammer home to the minority voters that the Honky Lady stole a minority spot with her phoney minority assertion.

Yup:

Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren acknowledged for the first time late Wednesday night that she told Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania that she was Native American…

Questions for the Globe and Herald reporters re the above: Who did she tell at Harvard and Penn; what, exactly, did she tell them; when did she tell them; (Harvard and Penn are good enough for where), and how did she tell them: in writing? on a job application form? an EEOC statement? orally?

Pretty certain it wasn’t sitting around the campfire telling Family Lore stories.

At least she admitted to being 1/32 liar.

Zombie on May 31, 2012 at 12:43 PM

No, I think this means she’s at least 31/32 liar, though the genealogists say it’s an even 1.

Tzetzes on May 31, 2012 at 2:41 PM

its the female version of anthony weiner; i will not admit to anything until you’ve proved it to me

burserker on May 31, 2012 at 2:43 PM

Is there a single person of integrity left in the Democratic Party?

This is an organization that’s promoted to America a presidential candidate whose publisher represented his birthplace as Kenya for fully 17 years; a Connecticut senatorial candidate who claimed to have served in the US military in Vietnam; and now a Massachusetts candidate who claims inside knowledge of Native American recipes based on heritage.

Democrats and leftists…please!

Elizabeth Warren just admitted to FELONY, and causing Harvard to commit FELONIES.

Tzetzes on May 31, 2012 at 2:41 PM

Ya – I see it as 32/32 liar.

dentarthurdent on May 31, 2012 at 3:22 PM

after I was hired by them

She misspoke. She meant… “I was hired AFTER and BECAUSE I told them I was Cherokee.”

theCork on May 31, 2012 at 3:33 PM

No wonder why she was a part of the Obama administration..she’s a liar like the rest of them

sadsushi on May 31, 2012 at 3:42 PM

Please…no more comments about Warren breastfeeding. It’s creeping me out.

Allendundit on May 31, 2012 at 3:11 PM

Not possible. You can’t have integrity and be in the Democrat Party. Artur Davis developed some integrity and was therefore forced to declare that he is no a Republican. It’s an oil and water kind of thing. Oxymoronic.

trapeze on May 31, 2012 at 3:53 PM

Elizabeth Warren…aka “Princess Spread Eagled”…

right2bright on May 31, 2012 at 1:49 PM

Yet another visual that I did not need. Please stop. Ugh.
