BREAKING: Elizabeth Warren apologizes for Native American claim, 30-year-old handwritten document found (PHOTO)

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WashingtonPost:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday that she was sorry that she identified herself as a Native American for almost two decades, reflecting her ongoing struggle to quiet a controversy that continues to haunt her as she prepares to formally announce a presidential bid.

Her comments more fully explain the regret she expressed last week to the chief of the Cherokee Nation, the first time she’s said she was sorry for claiming American Indian heritage.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I can’t go back,” Warren said in an interview with The Washington Post. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”

The Washington Post reported they have just discovered a document from April 1986, where Warren claimed, in her own handwriting, that her race was “American Indian.”

But as Warren undergoes increased scrutiny as a presidential candidate, additional documents could surface to keep the issue alive.

Using an open records request during a general inquiry, for example, The Post obtained Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas, providing a previously undisclosed example of Warren identifying as an “American Indian.”
