Scott Brown Challenges Elizabeth Warren's Native American Ancestry; PJTV Calls Her Out For Hypocrisy

May 8, 2012 - American Indian Princess Elizabeth Warren is skewered by PJTV's Zonation in a wicked new video. Writes PJTV on their video post, "Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren held herself out as a Native America, even though she has difficulty identifying actual Native Americans in her family tree. Was she taking advantage of employment programs meant to help minorities, or is Elizabeth Warren entitled to different treatment based on a very distant relative?"  The whole ugly flap started when Warren claimed that she was 1/32 Native American (Cherokee), which resulted in Harvard University Law School promoting her as a minority hire. At the time, said The Boston Globe, the law school faced criticism for not having enough minority members in its faculty.

Check out the video:

Meanwhile, an ABC News report today says that Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R) is calling on Warren "to release her law school applications in response to the questions about the recent revelations that she self-identified as Native American based on her tenuous Cherokee bloodline." Warren and Brown will probably face each other in a "hotly contested" race for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.

“Serious questions have been raised about the legitimacy of Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Native American ancestry and whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a college professor,” Brown's statement said.

Warren - and Harvard - have been harshly criticized for the hypocrisy of the minority status assigned to her for claiming 1/32 Native American ancestry. "Senatorial wannabe Elizabeth Warren, aka Fauxcahontas," wrote Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa with Megan Johnson in a scathing op-ed in The Boston Herald, "said she listed herself as a minority in law school directories because she was hoping to meet others with Native American roots. So isn’t it a shame that Liz took a pass on last weekend’s 17th annual Harvard Powwow????"
