Report: Warren won't list herself as Native American with Senate


BOSTON (FOX 25 / Sen. Elizabeth Warren reportedly has no plans to list herself as Massachusetts' first Native American U.S. Senator.

Warren aides say the Senator, who describes herself as Native American, does not plan to contact historians with the Senate Historical Office, reports the Boston Herald.

Sen. Warren was criticized by opponent Scott Brown in the 2012 election after she failed to furnish proof of her Native American heritage. Warren listed herself as a minority in several school directories prior to becoming a Harvard Law professor.

In a June 2012 interview, FOX 25's Sharman Sacchetti addressed the fact that Warren would be the first female senator to be elected from the Bay State.

Sacchetti also asked Warren if she'd be the first Native American elected to the post, to which Warren replied, "I would be the first senator so far that I know who has Native American heritage."
