RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has filed a grievance against Sen. Elizabeth Warren with the State Bar of Texas after it was revealed the Senator once claimed to be American Indian on her registration card.
The Hill writes that McDaniel “called that a misrepresentation and wrote to the state bar’s chief disciplinary counsel to argue the senator had failed to correct her registration card from 1986, and therefore violated the state’s requirements that applicants have ‘good moral character and fitness.’”
McDaniel wrote to the Texas Bar, “Attorney Warren is now apologizing for misrepresenting herself as an ‘American Indian’ or Native American throughout her career.”
She continued, “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. 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.”
The Washington Post revealed yesterday that Warren listed herself as “American Indian” on her Texas Bar registration card.
Warren apologized for lying about her heritage, telling the paper, “I can’t go back, but I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.” More
