New Elizabeth Warren Ad Says Scott Brown Attacking Her Family

For daring to bring up the fact that her claim to Native American heritage was dubious


Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren responded to attacks over her claims of Native American heritage with a new ad released Monday, accusing opponent Sen. Scott Brown (R) of "attacking" her family.

"As a kid, I never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our Native American heritage," says Warren in the new TV ad. "What kid would? But I knew my father's family didn't like that she was part Cherokee and part Delaware, so my parents had to elope."
