Brown Campaign Calls on Warren to 'Come Clean'
Scott Brown Campaign to Elizabeth Warren: ‘Come Clean’ on Native American Heritage. With the revelation that law directories preceding Warren’s arrival at Harvard listed her minority status, the Brown campaign called on Warren for an explanation. “This story raises serious questions about Elizabeth Warren’s credibility. The record now shows Prof. Warren did claim to be a ‘minority,’ and that she attempted to mislead the public about these facts when she was first asked about the issue last week,” said Brown spokesman Jim Barnett. “Prof. Warren needs to come clean about her motivations for making these claims and explain the contradictions between her rhetoric and the record.”
“The simple fact is that Elizabeth is proud of her heritage,’’ spokeswoman Alethea Harney said in a statement. [Herald | Globe]
