The Washington Post broke the story exposing Elizabeth Warren’s Texas State Bar, where she claimed she was a Native American. Since the story broke Elizabeth Warren released a statement to the Washington Post with a nonchalant “I can’t go back now.”

The Post wrote, “Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it. Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.”


Warren responded, ““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 Post noted, “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.””

According to The Post, “The Texas bar registration card is significant, among other reasons, because it removes any doubt that Warren directly claimed the identity. In other instances Warren has declined to say whether she or an assistant filled out forms.”

The Post continued, “The card shows her name, her gender and the address for the University of Texas law school in Austin, where she was working at the time.”

The Post finished, “On the line for “race,” Warren neatly printed, “American Indian.” She left blank lines for “National Origin” and “Physical handicap” and signed the document.”
