Brown and Warren Spar Over Tax Returns

Quote:
The Brown campaign has already tried to use Ms. Warren’s Harvard salary — about $431,000 from January 2010 through December 2011, according to her disclosure form — as proof that she is an out-of-touch elitist. Ms. Warren, a longtime consumer advocate, has campaigned as a champion of the middle class and said that corporations and the wealthy unfairly get to play by a different set of rules.

On Monday, when Ms. Warren criticized a planned doubling of interest rates on student loans subsidized by the government, known as Stafford loans, the Brown campaign shot back that her annual salary as a Harvard professor would cover a year of tuition for “more than nine full-time students” there.
Wonder why tuition is so high in the first place?...When you have teachers making over $200,000 per year (while spending most of their time campaigning instead) making students take out ridiculous loans to pay for them...

an update to this story............................

Quote:
Desperately scrambling to validate Democrat Elizabeth Warren’s Native American heritage amid questions about whether she used her minority status to further her career, the Harvard Law professor’s campaign last night finally came up with what they claim is a Cherokee connection — her great-great-great-grandmother.

“She would be 1⁄32nd of Elizabeth Warren’s total ancestry,” noted genealogist Christopher Child said, referring to the candidate’s great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, who is listed on an Oklahoma marriage certificate as Cherokee. Smith is an ancestor on Warren’s mother’s side, Child said.

The missing link comes after Warren’s embattled campaign faced sharp questions about her Native American background in the wake of Herald stories that showed both Harvard Law School and Warren herself had touted her tribal lineage and claimed she was a member of a minority for years.

I'm surprised that obama hasn't offered this woman a cabinet position yet.

She already was part of this administration...

She was the Special Advisor for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and before that, the Chairperson of the Congressional Oversight Panel...

Wasn't she trying to take some sort of credit for the Occupy movement at one time. They don't seem to want to talk about that so much anymore.

Newest twist to this story about Elizabeth Warren..........

Quote:
Elizabeth Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears
Quote:
For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American. When recently asked to provide evidence of her ancestry, she pointed to an unsubstantiated claim on an 1894 Oklahoma Territory marriage license application by her great-great grand uncle William J. Crawford that his mother, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandmother, was a Cherokee.

After researching her story, it is obvious that her "family lore" is just fiction.

As I pointed out in my article here on Sunday, no evidence supports this claim. O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford had no Cherokee heritage, was listed as "white" in the Census of 1860, and was most likely half Swedish and half English, Scottish, or German, or some combination thereof. (Note, the actual 1894 marriage license makes no claim of Cherokee ancestry.)

But the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee—the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.

You know if Trail of Tears wasn't such a sad and tragic thing I would find that funny.

Oh what the Hell, who am I kidding. It's hilarious.

She just went from 1/32nd Cherokee to 9/10ths a-hole...

Someone should ask Harvard if they have diversity groups for Indian killers...
