Officials in Cambridge, Massachusetts have backed off their order to remove campaign signs that called Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren a "fake Indian," The Washington Times is reporting.

Independent Senate candidate Shiva Ayyadurai had banners on his campaign bus depicting Warren in a feathered headdress with the words: "Only a real Indian can defeat Indian."

Ayyadurai was born in Bombay, India. Warren has claimed Cherokee heritage, drawing skepticism during her 2012 Senate campaign, Roll Call reported.

President Donald Trump has referred to her as "Pocahontas."

Cambridge officials have withdrawn an order issued in April for him to remove the signs. Ayyadurai had filed suit against the city, claiming it was trying to violate his free speech rights, but is now dropping the case.

"If we had not fought and won this battle, the city of Cambridge would have set a historic precedent empowering an precedent empowering any bureaucrat sitting in a City Hall across America to squelch your free speech, because they simply didn’t like you or favored a particular political ideology or candidate," he said.

Warren lives about a mile away from the office building where Ayyadurai parks his bus.
