A group of more than 150 Cherokees—enrolled Cherokees and descendants from the three federally recognized Cherokee tribes, the Cherokee Nation, the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians, and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians—demanded today that Elizabeth Warren tell the truth about her "Cherokee" ancestry and identity.This could have the same effect as the "Swift Boat Veterans For Truth" had on John Kerry. The possibility that Warren could lose in the primary is becoming a lot more realistic.
The newly established group has not yet established a specific organizational structure, but it already has a website and Facebook page, each proclaiming loudly the group’s name, "Cherokees Demand Truth from Elizabeth Warren," with a pointed message to Ms. Warren included in the logo:
You claim to be Cherokee.
You forget, it isn’t who you claim, but instead, who claims you.
We don’t claim you!
UPDATE: Check out how the Governor of Massachusetts jumps in and tries to save Warren from having to answer a question.
