Elizabeth Warren is surging to the top of the Democrat primary polls.
But she has a major problem on her hands.
And Elizabeth Warren issued this apology that could end her campaign.
Elizabeth Warren is still trying to get a handle on the fallout from her lies about having Native American heritage.
Warren took a DNA test before launching her campaign that she claimed “proved” her claims of Indian ancestry were correct.
Warren took this test to put Donald Trump’s “Pocahontas” taunts to bed.
But the test showed she may have only been 1/1,024th Native American.
Warren added to her woes by appearing at the Native American Presidential forum in Iowa where she apologized for any pain she caused.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) participated on Monday in the Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa, and apologized for making “mistakes” in the past.
Warren was the second speaker out of a slew of fellow 2020 candidates slated to speak at the forum over the next two days. She told the crowd she has “listened” and “learned a lot” and offered another apology for her past “mistakes,” which involved listing herself as a minority in the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) deskbook for more than a decade. She also listed herself as a Native American on her Texas Bar registration card.
“Like anyone who’s been honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes,” Warren told the crowd. “I am sorry for harm I have caused.”
“I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations we have had together,” she added.
Ever since this scandal surfaced during her 2012 U.S. Senate campaign, Warren has constantly claimed she did nothing wrong and that her critics are racist.
If both of those things were true, why was she apologizing?
