On Wednesday Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel filed a grievance against Elizabeth Warren with the State Bar of Texas.
In the letter, Chairwoman McDaniel requests disciplinary action be taken against Warren for lying and failing to correct a misrepresentation she made on her Texas Bar registration card where she identified as “American Indian.”
Elizabeth Warren is not a Native American, and therefore had no right to claim minority status.
On Tuesday the Washington Post released Elizabeth Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas, revealing Warren identified as an “American Indian.”
Elizabeth Warren made up elaborate stories over the years to bolster her claims that she is Native American.
The Massachusetts Senator even claimed her parents had to elope because her father’s parents were racist and didn’t approve of their son’s Cherokee girlfriend — she shamelessly claimed her Pawpaw’s high cheekbones were proof she is of Native American descent.
In 1996 the Harvard Crimson identified Elizabeth Warren as a woman of color and Native American.
In 1998 Harvard bragged Elizabeth Warren, “who is Native American”, was their only minority tenured woman on staff.
Elizabeth Warren took what could have been given to a REAL Native American — she’s a white woman who stole from minorities and now she’s claiming she will fight for ‘people of color.’
If we had a real media, Elizabeth Warren would have resigned in disgrace years ago for her lies.
On Wednesday Chairwoman McDaniel sent this letter to the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel in Texas.
RE: GRIEVANCE AGAINST ATTORNEY ELIZABETH WARREN (BAR CARD #20885410)
VIA CERTIFIED MAIL
The Office Of Chief Disciplinary Counsel
P.O. Box 13287
Austin, TX 78711
Dear Chief Disciplinary Counsel,
This letter is to alert your office of false claims made by Texas-barred attorney, Elizabeth Warren. Attorney Warren was admitted to the Texas bar on April 11, 1986 and her Bar Card Number is 20885410 with a current status of “Inactive.”
Attorney Warren should be disciplined for lying and failing to correct a misrepresentation she made on her Texas Bar registration card. The Washington Post obtained a copy of Attorney Warren’s Texas Bar registration card. On April 18, 1986, Attorney Warren registered for the Texas bar and made a misrepresentation that she was “American Indian” on a section titled “Race.”
According to the Texas Disciplinary Rules Of Professional Conduct, rule 8.01:
An applicant for admission to the bar, a petitioner for reinstatement to the bar, or a lawyer in connection with a bar admission application, a petition for reinstatement, or a disciplinary matter, shall not:
(a) knowingly make a false statement of material fact; or
(b) fail to correct a misapprehension known by the person to have arisen in the matter, or knowingly fail to respond to a lawful demand for information from an admission, reinstatement, or disciplinary authority, except that this rule does not require disclosure of information otherwise protected by Rule 1.05.
According to the rules of admission for the Texas Bar, an applicant must be of “Good Moral Character and Fitness.” The applicable rule states:
Good moral character is a functional assessment of character and fitness of a prospective lawyer. The purpose of requiring an Applicant to possess present good moral character is to exclude from the practice of law those persons possessing character traits that are likely to result in injury to future clients, in the obstruction of the administration of justice, or in a violation of the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct. These character traits usually involve either dishonesty or lack of trustworthiness in carrying out responsibilities.
Attorney Warren is now apologizing for misrepresenting herself as an “American Indian” or Native American throughout her career. It has now been thirty-three (33) 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 (3) decades of untruthfulness.
