Questions character

June 27, 2012
In response to those who maintain they would vote for Elizabeth Warren, I would question the character of Warren. Claiming to have a Cherokee heritage which has been questioned by some Cherokee Tribe members themselves reveals a question of character. She maintains she revealed her so-called Native Heritage was done merely to meet other members of the same Tribe. However, with her claim, she was touted as a Native American by Harvard although she had no credentials to support her claim. She later revealed that she based her claim on the fact that her mother and grandparents told her stories about her being of Cherokee ancestry. In spite of the continued controversy about her heritage, she was never able to provide proof of her claim. In addition with her claim, she was able to avail herself of the benefits and recognition of being a Native American.
