Suddenly, Elizabeth Warren isn't a minority
Posted by Staff
The Washington Post reports:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whose biggest campaign controversy was over claims about her Native American heritage, will not be identified as a minority in the Senate Historical Office’s official directory.

The Boston Herald’s Hillary Chabot repeatedly pressed Warren during her campaign against then-Sen. Scott Brown (R) for claiming minority status as a Harvard professor without proof she is 1/16th Cherokee.

On Tuesday, under the headline “Liz won’t beat drum,” Chabot reported that Warren, who was sworn in last week, had not sought to identify herself as a minority in the official directory. Facebook Fark Furl
