Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee claim challenged by genealogist

I confess I have not closely followed this story about Elizabeth Warren’s claim to Cherokee heritage.  She claims it, it is refuted, then she comes back and doubles down.  I don’t know Ms. Warren so I have no way of knowing about her heritage, so, as I am awaiting something to convince me one way or the other, I see this letter from a genuine Cherokee descendant and genealogist.

Here’s an except of Twila Barne’s letter to Warren:

“I am writing this letter in the hope it will help end the current situation you have found yourself in. It seems you are being ripped apart in the media because of your claim of Cherokee ancestry and you don’t like it. According to a recent article in the Boston Globe, you believe your opponent is “creating a distraction” by “ridiculously” attacking you “with questions that have already been answered.” It seems you would like the “attacks” against your claims of Cherokee ancestry to stop so I thought I would offer some advice on how to make it stop.

Tell the truth….”

See the rest of the letter at Legal Insurrection.


I believe Ms. Barnes.  And it is so typical of liberal antics.  A lie.  Then the lie is revealed. Then the liberal bears down and compounds the lie.  They have gotten away with this for so long, it is just second nature to them.  So, yes, it appears Elizabeth Warren needs to own up to her deception or come up with some proof..
