Elizabeth Warren has been caught in another lie.
From the latest commentary by hotair.com’s writer with the annoying screen name, “allahpundit”…
…this story is from this year’s stump speech as she runs for the Democrat presidential nomination:for you:
“I still remember that first year as a special needs teacher. I could tell you what those babies looked like. I had 4- to 6-year-olds. But at the end of that first year, I was visibly pregnant. And back in the day, that meant that the principal said to me — wished me luck and hired someone else for the job.”
And this one is the 2007 version:
“I was married at nineteen and graduated from college after I’d married, and my first year post-graduation I worked in a public school system with the children with disabilities. I did that for a year, and then that summer I didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an “emergency certificate,” it was called. I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, “I don’t think this is going to work out for me.” I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, “What am I going to do?” My husband’s view of it was, “Stay home. We have children, we’ll have more children, you’ll love this.” And I was very restless about it.
Notice a bit of a difference? Like about 100%? Over the past 12 years Elizabeth Warren went from turning down a job to be a stay-at-home mom – her choice – to being tossed out because she was pregnant – a story that is much more salable to Democrat primary voters.
It doesn’t take a lot of savvy to determine that one of these versions is untrue. So we start with the fact that Elizabeth Warren has lied to our faces. Again.
And in case you’re wondering what the real story was, let’s go to Collin Anderson’s article at Washington Free Beacon, which tells us:
Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a “2nd year” contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job. That job is similar to the one she held the previous year, her first year of teaching. Minutes from a board meeting held two months later, on June 16, 1971, indicate that Warren’s resignation was “accepted with regret.”
That, let’s remember, is long before Ms. Warren was involved in elective politics; at a time when there was no reason at all to insert anything in those minutes but what actually happened.
So we now know that, in addition to her lie about being a Native American – which was a linchpin of her career progress in academia – she is also lying about how her employment ended in Riverdale, NJ almost a half century ago, by replacing it with a new story that makes her the victim of gender oppression.
Any other lies you’d like to tell us, Ms. Warren? There are still months to go before the first primary.
