No Way: Elizabeth Warren Plagiarized 'Pow Wow Chow' Recipes?

Frankly, the fact that she has no clue that the Cherokee were plains Indians and had no access to crab and certainly did not make mayo proves she is lying. Wherever she came up with the recipes is irrelevant. She submitted recipes that she says were handed down from her Cherokee ancestors and knows that to be an outright lie. Anyone who would vote for a person who lies so readily for gain and who is too stupid to know when to give it up deserves the horror that having her as representative would entail.

Cherokees are from the Carolinas, one of the "Civilized Tribes. They were forced to the plains by the Federal government during what as called the "Trail of Tears".

Yes, through legislation called The Indian Removal Act of 1835 signed into law by democratic president Andrew Jackson. (He wasn't particularly fond of the Seminoles either.)

Yes, but you are missing the point. Do you really think the Cherokee kept all their seafood recipes and then handed them down to their posterity while living on the plains for decades? It defies logic.

And let us not forget that it was Ms Warren's great-great-great-great grandfather employed by the Federal army to escort said Cherokees on the Trail....just sayin'.

Allahpundit is incredulous.  I mean, what else can you be at this point?  Quick recap: Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren (D) listed herself as a Native American in a professional law directory for at least nine years, and still maintains that she is being truthful about her "identity."  Documents show that two of the Ivy League law schools that hired her excitedly touted her as a minority or faculty member -- though she now insists that her "ethnicity" played no role whatsoever in her hiring process.  Sure.  Much searing scrutiny, and several hilarious explanations later, we now know...
