Via The Free Beacon, an Elizabeth Warren surrogate appeared on the Ed Show. What’s interesting is not just that the surrogate still insists that Warren has Native American heritage, but that Ed pushed her on it and basically says to fess up:
SCHULTZ: Wait a minute. Did she ever put down on an application that she was Native American? It’s fair question. And if she did, so what. It was years ago or whatever. But what they are trying to do is paint her out who is someone that is not credible, not telling the truth, hiding something, maybe took an advantage when she didn’t deserve it. I just think that needs to be addressed. When you pick up the largest newspapers in the country and they are writing about this, it would seem it’s disfocusing the campaign somewhat.
There are other shoes to drop. I wish I could tell you more, but I can’t. It’s just a matter of when.
Update: Twila Barnes continues her genalogical work, and in a post today dispels the comparison made by defenders of Warren to Cherokee Chief Bill John Baker, who allegedly is only 1/32 Cherokee. Barnes has tracked both families, and reports as follows:
Several times, I have either read or heard [Warren] compared to the Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation, Bill John Baker, because some give her the benefit of the doubt and say Warren might have the same blood quantum as Baker. IF, and I capitalized that on purpose, because we are talking “big if” here, she actually had a Cherokee ancestor, and IF it was the ancestor she claims through, that might be true, but it isn’t….
Now we are starting to see a very big difference in the two families. Ms. Warren’s is showing a very distinct pattern of living as whites while Chief Baker’s is showing a very distinct pattern of living as Indians. We find Ms. Warren’s great grandfather listed as white on five different documents. We find Chief Baker’s great grandmother listed as Indian and/or Cherokee numerous times on many different documents.
And this meme will continue to grow:
