New Documents Further Puncture Elizabeth Warren Claim She Lost Teaching Job Due to Pregnancy
“The Riverdale Board of Education approved a second-year teaching contract for a young Elizabeth Warren, documents show”
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) continues to tell crowds that she did not retain a teaching job years ago because of her visible pregnancy.
A video recently surfaced of her telling a very different version of the story in 2007. New documents further complicate Warren’s telling of the events.
Collin Anderson of the Washington Free Beacon has the story:
County Records Contradict Warren’s Claim She Was Fired Over Pregnancy
The Riverdale Board of Education approved a second-year teaching contract for a young Elizabeth Warren, documents show, contradicting the Democratic presidential candidate’s repeated claims that she was asked not to return to teaching after a single year because she was “visibly pregnant.”
Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a “2nd year” contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job. That job is similar to the one she held the previous year, her first year of teaching. Minutes from a board meeting held two months later, on June 16, 1971, indicate that Warren’s resignation was “accepted with regret.”
Warren’s claim that she was dismissed after her first year of teaching because she was pregnant has become a cornerstone of her stump speeches. She has used it to both explain her jump from teaching into the legal world as well as to showcase the difficulties that women face in the workplace. The principal of the school she worked at in the early 1970s, Warren has said, “showed [her] the door” at the end of the school year because she was “visibly pregnant.”

She has been telling people that she was a victim of sexism, but this revelation completely contradicts her account:
“The resignation of Mrs. Elizabeth Warren…was accepted with regret”

Tucker Carlson covered this last night, and as you’ll see in the video, Warren’s claim about not being rehired for being pregnant isn’t something she said once off the cuff. She has repeatedly said this:

Let me show you my surprised face
Cherokee Professor Says Warren Campaign Disrespected Him
Have some more surprise quiksliverz24. Anyone talking about Trump lying needs to have their head examined if they gloss over lieawatha. She doesn’t ever tell the truth about anything.
When I first ran for the Senate, they told me that a woman couldn’t win. But we built a movement, made history, and won. And I’m ready to do it again to fight for the big, structural change that we need. pic.twitter.com/UUmixPPbhZ

When she first ran for Senate there had already been 43 female senators.
7 were from before she was born. https://t.co/GJzXVEmqto

The minutes say the school board wanted her.
Warren says the principal didn’t.
Both stories could be true.
I’m with the principal on this one.
Me too. He just wanted to save the Planet by discouraging more crumb snatchers. Oh, that restriction doesn’t apply to the elite?
maybe there were two Elizabeth Warren’s that were substitute teachers that had contracts offered at the exact same time.
If the principal didn’t want to renew her contract it never would have reached the board for approval.
“Both stories could be true.”
Fauchohauntus could be an Indian too.
In other words, she lies.
She simply can’t make her case without first establishing that she too is a victim. A super hero complex. It can’t be that she is in politics out of blind ambition. Super heroes would never be that crass and selfish.
This lady is the absolute worst candidate!!!! At the very least….in order to be a successful politician, you need to play fast and loose with the truth and make sure your blatant lies are uncheckable…..it at least defendable by your media arm.
First the Cherokee stories and now this! Ridiculous! What sucks is that this self portrayal as victim in order to advance will be with us for at least another generation….maybe 2.
We will know that society has totally jumped the shark on cashing in on victim status when straight people pretend to be gay in the same way whites pretend to be blacks (or Native Americans). Guilty boomers and indifferent Xers have brought this upon us….can we count on Millennials and the Homelanders to get us out? It’s not looking good.
Gee, what a surprise. Elizabeth “Honest Injun” Warren caught out in another lie. I wonder if the school (if it still exists) could sue Warren for her obviously false and defamatory claims.
Perhaps the principal was just being polite and holding the door for her. As, Comey likes to say, “it’s possible.”
Who knows what was said between the principal and Warren in private. My wife taught for 35 years and late in her career was RIF’d when budget cuts hit her department. She fought back and the school offered part time employment instead. When the following year they wouldn’t restore her full time employment, she took a position with another school and we moved. Where all that was especially grievous, is the “two days per week” isn’t two 8 hour days, back to back where she could get another p/t job 3 days a week for full time employment, rather it was a “40%” of full time offer – and amounted to 8 classes per week (on a 4 block schedule) which meant she worked 90 minutes one day, the next two 90 minute periods separated by a 90 minute OFF period, etc. They tied her up 5 days per week.
So I can see a situation where the 2-days a week thing is the schools way of putting the squeeze on a teacher who had hoped for being promoted to full-time – or the possibility of some unrecorded ‘elevator talk’ … I can attest from experience, public and moreso private school treat teachers badly and pay them
The real telling thing about Warren for me, is the difference in the story as she originally told it, and what she’s saying now. That should be driven home in side-by-side ads to show her for the fabricator that she is.
K12 schools are far from perfect and have to bend to real world rules of economics, but it’s not “treating someone badly” to offer them the same employment they had the previous year.
Sometimes, the full time job is just not available.
Congenital liar. Q.e.d
According to some reports, she’s said in the past that she and her husband decided that she’d take a couple of years off to have the baby and take care of it.
First someone needs to ask her if she would be proud to be the first Native American president.
You’re just attacking her because she is a woman who at one time was pregnant.
Actually, the principal fired her for being native American.
Oh wait, is that last week’s narrative or next week’s?
Fauxahontas is nothing more than the Harpy Hag 2.0 but without the Horny Hick to back her.
