It’s hard to think of a single thing Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. has accomplished in Washington.
Instead, she’s best remembered for faking Native American ancestry to advance her academic career.
She even took a DNA test that proved she was a liar — earning her the nickname “Fauxahontas.”
Warren’s entire political future depends on voters forgetting about her embarrassing scandal.

The only problem? Native American leaders are REFUSING to let Warren move on.
And that’s absolutely disastrous for her campaign.
At a presidential forum last week focused on Native American issues, Warren fumbled her way through an apology and tried to put the issue to bed.
“I am sorry for harm I have caused,” she said. “I have listened, and I have learned a lot. And I am grateful for the many conversations that we’ve had together.”

But, of course, many Native Americans know that Warren isn’t really sorry — she’s just sorry she got caught.
“It’s a good strategy for her, but it doesn’t address the central issue of Cherokee sovereignty: How will you repair the harm you have caused?” Cherokee citizen Joseph Pierce told Politico. “She has not even admitted what that harm was.”
Cherokee journalist Rebecca Nagle added that Warren needs to admit what everyone already knows — that she and her family are white, and that she had “falsely claim[ed] Native identity.”
All of this is bad news for Warren, who is eager to move past the Fauxahontas label.
If she can’t, she probably has no chance of becoming the Democratic nominee — and certainly has no prayer of unseating President Donald Trump.

“What I fear most is that if she does become the nominee, then it’s going to be this ugly front-and-center issue where basically native identity is going to be weaponized,” Nagle told Politico. “If Warren doesn’t take care of this issue in the primary stage, I don’t think she’s going to be able to handle it in a general election against Trump.”
