She really should just bow out.
Howie Carr is going to have a field day with his next column breaking out all the nicknames (Lieawatha, Fauxcahontas and Chief Spreading Bull, far more clever than Trump).

Her campaign is DOA at this point.

Haven’t done mine yet, but pretty much everyone is posting about how pissed off they are at how much higher it is than last year.

Elizabeth Warren probably won't bow out immediately but she really should sooner rather than later.

She could still make a very good cabinet member for somebody, but running with this scandal over her head (and getting worse) is just foolish.

Am I wrong for thinking this is a dumb scandal to get worked up about? She's one of the most progressive candidates, and we're going to throw her away because she bent the truth(she does have Native American ancestry, however small and however long ago) on a question about her heritage?

All the things the Orange Clown gets away with and we have to throw away the only candidate aggressively running on a wealth tax over this?

Seriously, if I'm missing something and this is worse than I think it is, tell me, I want to be informed.

umm, yes. she may have *some* native ancestry but this is equivalent to if i listed myself as black on government forms because i had one black great grandmother. that doesn't make me black and it doesn't make her native. yes it may not have mattered on this particular form, but it does raise the question of if she did the same thing on forms or elsewhere, where it would present some sort of benefit to be listed as a minority. and you know for a fact that even if the dems put this past them and nominated her that she'd be eviscerated over and over for it Hy her opponent. they'd beat her into the ground with it so much that she'd never have a chance to even talk about her policies. she was my preferred candidate before this too but that millstone is now too heavy to overcome.

she absolutely deserves a very important place in the government of whomever wins (knock on wood), but she's got about as much chance at being elected now as howard schultz.

Ok, I guess you're right when you put it like that. And regardless of what one thinks of what she did, you're right that she's just a waste of space in the presidential field if she has no chance on winning, which is how it appears to be.

Haven't started mine, but I just compared my W2s and see that my company withheld $5K less in 2018 than in 2017. Now I'm nervous.

Oh I understand, it is especially galling given what he gets away with. But as we see time and time and time again, there are distinct and different standards for the orange Teflon Don and well everyone else. I am in favor of her proposed wealth tax, but the very sad reality is that it will get lost among all the Native American stuff. Which works out perfectly for those same wealthy people. Funny not funny how that works out.

I really wish she hadn't done those things, she's smart and has some good ideas. I've voted for her twice and it's very disappointing. For me it's about credibility. I don't know what was going on in her head that she seemingly thought she needed those advantages. Maybe because of her humble background? She's the only one who knows.

I got lucky, ended up getting a much smaller refund, but still got one. My state refund was actually bigger.

The National Enquirer trying to blackmail Jeff Bezos, potentially the only person in the world who at this point really could not care less.
