The Post notes that this latest revelation is likely to cause problems for Warren because Democrats “want a nominee who can move beyond any problems in their past and present a strong challenge to President Trump.”
“The Texas bar registration card is significant, among other reasons, because it removes any doubt that Warren directly claimed the identity,” the Post added. “In other instances, Warren has declined to say whether she or an assistant filled out forms.”
The post notes that the date on the State Bar of Texas registration card “coincided with her first listing as a ‘minority’ by the Association of American Law Schools.”
“The date Warren reported herself as minority in the directory every year starting in 1986 — when AALS first included a list of minority law professors — to 1995, when her name dropped off the list,” The Post continued. “Warren also had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American in December 1989 while working at the University of Pennsylvania. The change came two years after she was hired there.”
The revelation comes after Warren apologized last week for to the Cherokee Nation for having claimed American Indian ancestry after her disastrous DNA test.
