Warren: The legend of Fauxcahontas' little big lie

It started when Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren was said to have used tenuous claims of Native American heritage to further her career. The defense for listing herself as a minority in a directory of law professors for almost a decade rested on the roots of Warren's great-great-great-grandmother. If true, that would make Warren 1/32 Cherokee. It was not. Now, Warren relies on tales of "high cheekbones" and media outlets like the Boston Globe, which buried the news that she was 0.00 percent Cherokee. It's hard to see how Harvard's first blond-haired, blue-eyed "woman of color" will get her campaign back on track.
What, just this one insignificant lie from Warren that we are taking issue with? I think that we can refer to a wealth of malignant in her voting record for better reasons to end her political career.
