Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel is urging the Texas State Bar to take disciplinary action against Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., for listing her race as “American Indian” on her registration card in 1986.
The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that Warren, who last week apologized for taking a DNA test to prove her claims of Native American heritage, filed out the card by hand and signed it, and that her office did not dispute its authenticity.
“Attorney Warren is now apologizing for misrepresenting herself as an ‘American Indian’ or Native American throughout her career,” McDaniel wrote in a letter to the Texas State Bar released Thursday, according to Mediaite. “It has now been thirty-three 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 decades of untruthfulness.”
“I’m not a member of a tribe,” Warren told reporters on Wednesday, according to the Post. “I have apologized for not being more sensitive to that distinction.”
She did not say if there could be other documents where she listed herself as Native American.
“All I know is during this time period, this is consistent with what I did because it was based on my understanding from my family stories,” the senator said. “But family stories are not the same as tribal citizens, and that is why I have apologized.”
