Elizabeth Warren has been very careful in her apologies. She’s sorry for not being more sensitive to tribal citizenship, but she’s not necessarily sorry for falsely claiming to be an Indian and using it to get ahead.
Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren apologizes for calling herself “American Indian”: “There really is an important distinction of tribal citizenship. I am not a member of the tribe and I have apologized for not being more sensitive to that distinction” https://t.co/fLDZs9Xfkw pic.twitter.com/6rS6vVq15S

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has filed a grievance against Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) with the State Bar of Texas after Tuesday’s revelation that Warren claimed to be American Indian on the registration card she filled out in 1986. The Washington Post obtained the document, which gave us the first instance of Warren claiming Native American heritage in handwriting.
“Attorney Warren should be disciplined for lying and failing to correct a misrepresentation,” McDaniel writes to the State Bar.
The chairwoman goes on to cite language from the Texas Disciplinary Rules Of Professional Conduct, which clearly notes that an applicant to the bar shall not “knowingly make a false statement of material fact” or “fail to correct a misapprehension known by the person to have arisen in the matter, or knowingly fail to respond to a lawful demand for information from an admission, reinstatement, or disciplinary authority, except that this rule does not require disclosure of information otherwise protected.” The RNC chair also quotes the bar’s rules of admission, which demand applicants demonstrate “Good Moral Character and Fitness.”
It’s pretty clear Warren has failed to demonstrate any of those things.
“It has now been thirty-three (33) years since she made this representation to the Texas Bar and has never made an attempt to correct her registration card,” McDaniel wrote. “Therefore it is clear that Attorney Warren lacked the “Good Moral Character” required for admission to the Texas Bar and should be disciplined for her three (3) decades of untruthfulness.”
I highly doubt Warren will be held accountable. Democrats seem to get away with everything.
