Massachusetts Senator fudged her own applications to gain special privileges at higher education institutions…
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., slammed the parents involved in a college cheating scandal on Wednesday, saying she has “zero” sympathy for people who play the system — despite the fact that she falsely claimed Native American ancestry on her college admission applications and her 1986 Texas Bar card.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Warren was asked, “As a parent, how much sympathy would you have for these parents who are embroiled in this alleged cheating scandal?”
“Zero,” Warren replied, without commenting further.
The Department of Justice uncovered a scandal this week in which more than 50 parents paid bribes and fake charitable donations to help their children gain admission into Ivy League and state universities.
Warren’s condemnation of the cheaters is ironic. Warren, who is 1/1024th Native American, made dozens of fraudulent claims over the years in an attempt to gain leverage in her political and academic career. She claimed minority status at Harvard Law School and on her state bar application. And the University of Pennsylvania Law School’s 2005 Minority Equity Report identified her as a minority when she received a faculty award.
Warren also listed herself on the “Minority Law Teacher” list, again claiming Native American ancestry, in the faculty directory of the Association of American Law Schools.
The Democratic presidential candidate tried to walk back her claims of Indian ancestry after Native American and progressive groups attacked her for cultural appropriation.
“I can’t go back,” Warren told the Washington Post last month. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”
Warren met with the Cherokee Nation to apologize directly, but her presidential campaign has already suffered from her fraudulent claims.
“I told him I was sorry for furthering confusion about tribal citizenship,” Warren told The Post, referencing a conversation between herself and Bill John Baker, principal chief of the Cherokee. “I am also sorry for not being more mindful about this decades ago. We had a good conversation.”
