2020 presidential hopeful Senator Elizabeth Warren scrubbed campaign website of her Native American DNA results.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has removed a couple of sections of her campaign website that had disputed claims about her heritage, including the results of a DNA test that showed she had scant traces of Native American ancestry and a video of the Democrat receiving the results of the genetic test, which showed that she had between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American ancestry.
DELETED: 2020 White House hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) campaign website no longer features a DNA test result revealing her fractional Native-American heritage.

2020 White House hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) campaign website no longer features a DNA test result revealing her fractional Native-American heritage.
Also removed from the website is a video of Warren receiving the test results, which revealed she was only between 1/64 and 1/1024 Native American. The Daily Caller reported the clip was scrubbed as of Sunday. The results of that analysis, published on October 16th of last year, show Warren may have a common ancestor six to ten generations ago with residents of Colombia, Mexico, and Peru.
She had previously said her Native American roots were part of “family lore” and stands accused of claiming such heritage to gain employment advantage in Academia, including a plum teaching position at Harvard Law School. In February, the Washington Post reported that Warren filled out a form for the State Bar of Texas in 1986 claiming she was of American-Indian ancestry.
In a brief statement with the Post, Warren apologized for claiming Native American heritage, saying: “I can’t go back, but I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.” More
At a Native American forum in Iowa Monday, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren apologized for the controversy caused by her previous claims of Native American heritage.
“According to CNN, Warren has met with Native American leaders, and has apologized in private for over-stating her ancestry claims”. Excuse me, but she didn’t simply “overstate her ancestry claims” she flat out lied about them. Could you imagine a Caucasian man using affirmative action by claiming he was African-American based on 1/1024 of his DNA being sub-Saharan African? I can’t imagine one person would refer to that as “overstating.”
Like deleting her DNA results from the website makes the whole issue go away.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
