  • Warren struggles to move past Native American heritage flap

The Post's bar registration revelation follows a report by The New York Times published Friday that Warren, apparently still attempting to do damage control after her DNA fiasco, reached out to Cherokee Nation to formally apologize for the stunt.

As Warren guns for a leadership position in a party which has oriented itself toward minority voters and political correctness, the controversy threatens to sink her chances early in the game.

Warren had been listed as "minority" and as Native American when she was part of the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Law School. Warren said. "There really is an important distinction of tribal citizenship". In an interview with the Post published Tuesday, she said she's sorry for identifying herself as Native American for almost two decades.

Christopher noted Warren has given conflicting statements on whether or not she was an independent and who she voted for in the 1980 and 1984 presidential elections.

Warren later apologized to the Cherokee nation telling the Washington Post, "I can't go back".

Abraham-Joseph out of detention while we work with authorities to clear up any misunderstanding", she said, according to Variety . Citizen children, a lawful permanent resident mother and four siblings that are either US Citizens or lawful permanent residents.

Elizabeth Warren released a video past year that included a DNA test of her heritage. "But family stories are not the same as tribal citizenship".

In a recent interview with Bloomberg News, Warren said her focus in running for president will be on "reducing the student loan debt burden, increasing our Social Security payments for those who depend most on it, and the overarching piece, reducing corruption in government".

An unnamed Warren aide speaking to CNN didn't dispute that the card was legitimate, nor did the aide challenge that the card contained Warren's handwriting. "But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted. [Warren] should be lambasted politically for claiming to be something that she's not", he said. At a debate with her Republican opponent in her Senate race in October, she said she took a DNA test and posted a video about it because she believes one way to rebuild trust in government is by posting her full family history online "so anybody can take a look. We had a good conversation". The move backfired, with Cherokee leaders outraged that she used the test to show any connection to the tribe, a process they control.

However, her apology is unlikely to end criticism of Warren's references to her heritage.
