From Prof. Jacobson's Legal Insurrection
Legal Insurrection posts that Elizabeth Warren was hired as a Native American faculty member at Harvard in the mid-1990s and was listed as a "minority faculty member".
Democratic Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren has been all over the newspapers the past several days after a revelation that Harvard Law School identified her as a Native American faculty member in the mid-1990s. The claim to Native American status came as a shock to the media and the Scott Brown campaign.
Warren contends that she was unaware of the designation by HLS, and that it played no role in her hiring. Warren asserts that her Native American heritage is family lore, and based on what she has been told not any specific documentation she is aware of.
Subsequently, David Bernstein discovered that in annual reports by the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) from 1986-1994, Warren was listed as a minority faculty member. Since AALS bases such information solely on what faculty self-reports, the information must have come from Warren herself. The AALS directories, however, only identify whether the faculty member is “minority,” not what minority status is claimed. - Legal Insurrection
Elizabeth Warren is the horrible sanctimonious liberal running for Senate against Scott Brown.
I guess we need to check into her casino holdings and penchant for wearing feathers.
