Elizabeth Warren has spent years claiming that she never used her story about being a Native American to advance her career.
But now, that lie has been exposed as untrue. She listed herself as a American Indian on a registration card with the State Bar of Texas.

Warren suggests ‘American Indian’ might appear on other documents
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) apologized repeatedly on Wednesday for identifying as American Indian on her Texas State Bar registration card, but she also suggested that it might not be the only document on which she labeled herself as such.
The Washington Post revealed on Tuesday that Warren had listed herself as “American Indian” on her Texas State Bar card, raising questions of how much the senator has claimed an identity with a community that does not accept her as one of its own. Warren, originally from Oklahoma, said she had grown up believing she had Native American ancestry and marked her identity following what her family had told her.
“Look, this is who I grew up believing with my brothers,” Warren told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday afternoon. “This is our family’s story, and it’s all consistent from that point in time. But as I said, it’s important to note I’m not a tribal citizen and I should have been more mindful of the distinction.”
This is going to do serious damage to Warren’s 2020 prospects. She is basically entering the race as damaged goods.
