Since American Indians are all the rage around here........................

Elizabeth Warren, who is on the verge of formally announcing a presidential bid, apologized on Tuesday for ever having identified as American Indian.

“I can’t go back,” Warren said in an interview with the Washington Post. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”

At the same time, the Post discovered unequivocal proof that the senator had formally identified as Native American in paperwork decades ago, as she had written, by hand, “American Indian” in the “Race” field in a 1986 form for the State Bar of Texas. The form reads: “The following information is for statistical purposes only and will not be disclosed to any person or organization without the express written consent of the attorney.”

Warren had long claimed a Cherokee ancestor, based on family lore. (She once listed herself as Cherokee in a local Oklahoma cookbook titled Pow Wow Chow.) In October, after a number of racist taunts by Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon (who mocked her with the slur “Pocahontas”) and years of scornful jokes by allies of former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, Warren released the results of a DNA test showing she did have a Native American ancestor.

Rather than appease her critics, the move angered Native Americans and other social justice advocates, who said she gave credence to the dangerous notion that tribal affiliation could be determined by genetics (it cannot) and disrespected the long tradition of tribes determining their own membership based on record-keeping.

She went ahead and declared she was running for president.

I don't think she had much chance before all of this.

Had she come clean in the beginning, this would have all been behind her.

She has some Indian blood. 

Possibly  1/1068th. Or is it 1/1064th. 

In any event, the bigger question is did she use her "race" to gain minority status for monetary gain?

What is Indian blood?

Or did you mean ancestry?

Which I might add was done using South American Indians as a means to the ancestry test

To your later point, I believe she did

Now really have to go

DNA, which oddly enough  doesn't always determine status as an American Indian.
