On the campaign trail, Elizabeth Warren often tells the story of how she was fired from her first teaching job in 1971 because she was pregnant, a pivotal moment that ultimately put her on a path to Harvard, the United States Senate, and quite possibly the presidency. But recently, several media outlets have questioned the veracity of these claims.

“All I know is I was 22 years old, I was 6 months pregnant, and the job that I had been promised for the next year was going to someone else. The principal said they were going to hire someone else for my job,” [Warren] said.

According to transcripts from local school board meetings, Warren was rehired in April of 1970. Then, the board reported it had “accepted with regret” her “resignation” the next summer.

The CBS News article goes on to state the following:

RELATED — REPORT: RECORDS EXPOSE WARREN’S FALSE CLAIM SHE WAS ONCE FIRED FOR BEING PREGNANT

Local newspaper reports from 1971 also present reasons for her leaving the school alternative to what she describes on the trail.  The Paterson News, a local paper, reported that summer that Warren was “leaving to raise a family.” The next month, a story about the school board hiring a replacement said Warren had “resigned for personal reasons,” even though the board had voted to “appoint” Warren to the same speech pathology job that April, according to an earlier report.

Speaking exclusively to CBS News, Warren doubled down on her claim.

Warren says she was told the school was giving the job to someone else. “I think that’s being shown the door,” she reportedly told CBS.

    Let’s not forget, all she knew was that she was a Cherokee Indian. Luckily there’s a DNA test for that. What a dumbass she is.

    When you start lying, you can’t keep all your stories straight. It’s much better not to lie, this way you remember your stories. Democrats don’t seem to know how to tell the truth.
