The Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is taking a hard hit at Sen. Elizabeth Warren for identifying herself as a Native American on the Texas State Bar.
After receiving flak for her DNA results, Warren revealed she’s up to 1/1,024th Native American. Warren did damage control by apologizing to the Cherokee Nation saying she “can’t go back … but I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”
Warren’s Texas State Bar registration card surfaced in the media recently, revealing she claimed to be of “American Indian” ancestry.
“Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting,” The Washington Post wrote. “Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.”

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel urged the Texas State Bar to punish Warren for “lying.”
“Attorney Warren should be disciplined for lying and failing to correct a misrepresentation she made on her Texas Bar registration card,” McDaniel wrote, Mediaite reported.
“Attorney Warren is now apologizing for misrepresenting herself as an ‘American Indian’ or Native American throughout her career. It has now been thirty-three years since she made this representation to the Texas Bar and has never made an attempt to correct her registration card. Therefore it is clear that Attorney Warren lacked the ‘Good Moral Character’ required for admission to the Texas Bar and should be disciplined for her three decades of untruthfulness.”
This is the latest heat Warren is getting regarding the controversial topic of her identifying as having Native American ancestry, and the topic doesn’t seem to be passing anytime soon, especially after Warren announced that she formed an exploratory committee for the 2020 presidential election.
