Don't blame me, but...

I wrote a story about Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren recently and the problems tracing her Native American family tree. Well, there has been a firestorm over her Teepee since then.

News folks from both paper and the web have been lambasting her claim and have now confirmed the 1894 marriage license application never existed. They didn't even have application forms until around 1950 in Oklahoma.

In fact her proof came down to a family tree some guy put on!

Give me a break, who pays attention to online family trees anymore? This is the source of her claim and why Harvard University listed her as their Native American Law Professor?
