Elizabeth Warren and the Ancestry Issue: What Do You Think? [Poll]

Democratic contender for U.S. Senate seat reportedly acknowledges she told schools of her heritage, but after she was hired.

After weeks of controversy, Elizabeth Warren tells the Boston Globe that yes, she told Harvard and University of Pennsylvania about her Native American ancestry, but says it came up after she was already hired.

The controversy did not sway Democratic Delegates at the State Convention in Springfield, 96 percent of whom voted to endorse Warren for Senate.

What do you think about her actions, how she handled the controversy — and most of all, if or how much that should figure into your vote this fall for either Warren (or her Democratic colleague in the race, Marisa DeFranco) or Republican Sen. Scott Brown?

Tell us by voting in the poll, or be more specific and articulate in the comments section below.

Now that is a cogent, factual, intelligent argument. See what the GOP is like? They insult themselves; I don't have to respond in kind.

Hey Bruce, is Pocahontas Warren in the so called 1%?

Granny a hypocrite! “The problem with running a campaign based on self-righteousness and moral superiority is that you had better live up to the same standard you would impose on everyone else,” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2875004/posts

I believe so. Is that a problem? I have several friends in the 1% who would welcome reform in the financial systems that would not be to their financial benefit. They don't mind making less since it would benefit our country and society as a whole. The demonizing of the 1% is a rhetorical device that assumes that not everyone in the 1% is simply greedy and sociopathic.

nice attempt with the deflection paint brush Bruce rather than actually answer the arguments, points or check your fact such as "Harvard made me do it" and all of your nonsesnse on Global warming and those emails. Try reading Steven Gould's The Mismeasure of Man and Goggling Cyril Burt on 50 years of IQ data fabrication and falsification to get a clue of the 200 year culture of agenda-driven scientific data fabrication by the British and all of the immense damage it has done, or maybe Christine Sommers Who Stole Feminism particularly chapter 2. As they say about lawyers, there are just not enough trees in Watertown.
