Warren Denies That Her Heritage Claim Helped Her Career

Democrat presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren insisted Monday that her debunked claim of Native American heritage played no role in the advancement of her career.

During a CNN town hall in Jackson, Mississippi, Warren was asked about criticism that her handling of questions about her heritage was “tone-deaf, offensive, and indicative of a lack of presidential tact.”

“I learned about my family from my family,” Warren replied. “You know, there was an investigation, nothing I ever did or my family played any role in any job I ever got.”
