A REAL INDIAN TAKES OUT THIS FRAUD!
Even if President Trump stops calling her “Pocahontas,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be unable to silence the chatter over her dubious claims of Cherokee ancestry for at least the next year, thanks in part to someone whose Indian heritage isn’t in doubt.
Shiva Ayyadurai, a Bombay-born, MIT-educated entrepreneur running as an independent to unseat the Massachusetts Democrat, already is the early favorite for the November election’s catchiest campaign slogan: “Only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian.”
In June, he sent Ms. Warren a DNA testing kit for her birthday. She sent it back, but the exchange exploded on social media.
“That’s the nightmare for Elizabeth Warren, because I can attack her from the left,” Mr. Ayyudurai said. “I can say, ‘Wait a minute, what do you know about the journey of a person of color? You know nothing. This is all theory to you. Because you did lie. You took advantage of affirmative action.’”
It’s been nearly six years since Ms. Warren won the Senate seat in spite of her “fake Indian” problem, but the issue is undergoing a fresh round of scrutiny as the progressive standard-bearer looks ahead to her re-election bid and potentially the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.
