Another disengenious Democrat that should know the cover-up is always worse than the original lie. :lol: :lol:



On their first day in the Hub, a group of Cherokees hoping to confront Elizabeth Warren over her Native American heritage claims blasted the Democrat for trying to dismiss the ancestry controversy as a non-issue in the Bay State U.S. Senate race.

“Poverty, teen suicide, our health care system,” said Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes in an interview today with the Herald. “Those are issues and those are the people she stepped on and used to benefit and now she says it’s not an issue. Well, of course, to her it’s not an issue because she doesn’t want to address that she did this.”



Ali Sacks, a Cherokee from Warren’s home state of Oklahoma, had harsher words: “It’s cowardly to ride the coattails of people who have lost so much for your own benefit and not accomplish what you can accomplish on your own benefits. I think it’s shameful and extremely disrespectful not just to Cherokees but to all tribes who have given so much to this country historically and lost so much.”

Four Cherokee women are in Boston for four days hoping to arrange a meeting with Warren. A spokeswoman for the Warren campaign told the Herald Sunday a staff member would greet the group, but the women told the Herald this morning they’ve still heard nothing from the campaign.

“What is wrong with sitting down with the people she claims to be a part of?” said Sacks. “That’s all we’d like to do — educate her. She has the same opportunity to educate us if we’re the wrong ones. But she runs and avoids because she knows there’s nothing to back her claims.”

The Cherokees wouldn’t divulge their schedule for the week, but they said they plan to present Warren with a secret birthday gift. Her birthday is Friday, and she has a campaign event Thursday night. They hinted they plan to make their presence loud and clear.

“I think it will be more and more visible as it goes on,” said Barnes. “The governor said he was speaking for the commonwealth and that the people don’t care. By the end of the week, there’s a good possibility he’ll find out that people do care.”

The trip has already produced one injury. One of the Cherokees tripped and fell while trying to carry Warren’s secret birthday gift earlier this week, but she expects to continue with the mission.

They insisted they have received no financial backing from U.S. Sen. Scott Brown or Republicans. Sacks said she is a registered Democrat and Barnes said she is a left-leaning independent who voted for Obama in 2008, U.S. Sen. John Kerry in 2004 and “has never voted for a Bush in my life.”

Warren has long maintained that she was hired on her merits and that a minority listing in law school documents played no role. Likewise, officials at Harvard Law School have also insisted race was never a factor.

yep,... as long as she wasn't white.. race wasn't a factor..

now had she been a white conservative male... then it would have been a major factor.. ,.. but she wasn't, she claimed to be a minority, a Female and a Liberal,.. so there was no need to even ask if she was qualified for the job... let alone bring race into it..... :? :shock:

I guarantee she benefitted financially:
Records show she was paid $350,000, plus $182,000 in royalties and consulting fees, before she took leave a year ago to establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on behalf of the Obama administration.

Boston Globe - Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard Law School professor and consumer advocate challenging Republican Senator Scott Brown, took home more than $700,000 in compensation from teaching and consulting fees over a two-year period from 2010 to 2011, according to her her most recent financial disclosure form.

Over that same period, she was collecting a six-figure salary for two consecutive federal government appointments.

She earned about $165,300 from September 2010 through August 2011 as a special advisor to President Obama, setting up the consumer protection agency she helped establish.

Before that, she collected a total of $192,722 for leading the congressional panel that oversaw the US bank bailout. That government salary covered a period that began before her latest disclosure report, spanning from November 2008 through September 2010.

Those numbers were not required to be in her financial disclosure report but were provided by her campaign.

A Democrat, Warren has pitched her campaign as a fight for the middle class, which she says has been left behind in Great Recession while the financial industry has been protected. Her salary and net worth have been a constant theme in Republican attacks against her, which almost always refer to her as “Professor Warren.”

Brown’s campaign argued today that her high salary makes her “an elitist hypocrite.”

Within Warren’s $700,000 in teaching and consulting fees is a $43,938 2010 payment she earned as a consultant in 2010 for Travelers Insurance company for cases involving asbestos victims.

“She is firmly entrenched in the same ‘1 percent’ she rails against, and she is more than happy to make tens of thousands of dollars defending powerful insurance companies against middle class victims,” said Jim Barnett, a spokesman for Brown.
