#MASen Update: Professor Warren’s Native American Controversy Continues

In Massachusetts, as Professor Elizabeth Warren’s controversy continues, the Boston Herald reports that Harvard has refused to say if they listed Ms. Warren as a minority.  Harvard Law School lists one lone Native American faculty member on its latest diversity census report — but school officials and campaign aides for Elizabeth Warren refused to say yesterday whether it refers to the Democratic Senate candidate.  Warren — who has been dogged by questions about whether she used her claims of Cherokee lineage to further her career — has insisted she never authorized Harvard Law to count her as a Native American in the mid-1990s, when the school was under fire for not having enough minority professors.

  • Meanwhile, Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics tells the Herald that it’s clear Warren was using the minority listing for career advancement.  “This takes her biography into a bizarre dimension,” said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics. “It has derailed the effort to define Warren in a voter-friendly way.”  Sabato also said that Warren’s claim that she didn’t list herself as a minority to gain an employment advantage is not believable.  “This is what happens when candidates don’t tell the truth,” he said. “It’s pretty obvious she was using (the minority listing) for career advancement.”


  • Also, Michael Graham at the Herald writes that Warren’s controversy is just another sign that the Democrats’ hand-picked candidate is sinking in the Bay State.  On Fox News Channel yesterday, Megyn Kelly asked me if this story was relevant and why. I told her the fact that the Democrats’ hand-picked candidate is sinking in deep-blue Massachusetts shows it’s relevant.  And the reason her story resonates isn’t simply because she tried to pass off some political peyote as the real deal. It hits a nerve with the many working Americans who know what it’s like to fight for a desperately-needed job, aware that their lack of any special standing could mean that a job they’re qualified for could end up going to someone else.  Like with Martha Coakley in 2009, the whiff of liberal entitlement is in the air, and voters don’t like it.  Sorry, Princess IsItFall–Yet. This time, you have to earn it.


Additionally, Fox News called Elizabeth Warren out for listing herself as a minority.


Finally, Chris Cillizza at the Washington Post writes that Professor Warren had the worst week in Washington.  When you’re in a hole, stop digging.  That lesson is taught on the first day of candidate school. Elizabeth Warren must have skipped class that day. … Elizabeth Warren, for turning a small hole into a yawning political ditch, you had the worst week in Washington. Congrats, or something.

Christie on Thursday fired a top aide at the center of a brewing scandal that public officials orchestrated a massive traffic snarl on the busy George Washington Bridge to settle a political score. Christie told a news conference he was stunned and heartbroken by revelations that his staff was behind the traffic jam designed to punish a local mayor who declined to endorse Christie's re-election bid.
