POLL: Elizabeth Warren and the Ancestry Issue: What Do You Think?

Democratic contender for U.S. Senate seat reportedly acknowledges she told schools of her heritage, but after she was hired.

After weeks of controversy, Elizabeth Warren has told the Boston Globe that yes, she told Harvard and University of Pennsylvania about her Native American ancestry, but says it came up after she was already hired.

What do you think about her actions, how she handled the controversy — and most of all, if or how much that should figure into your vote this fall for either Warren (or her Democratic colleague in the race, Marisa DeFranco) or Republican Sen. Scott Brown?

Tell us by voting in the poll, or be more specific and articulate in the comments section below.

I don't care if she played affirmative action games. I think she is smart and probabkmy deserves to hold her current job. What I care about is that she is ashamed of what she is and she needed to make up a fantasy about her identity. If she needs fantasies on such a fundamental matter then it means she is just not able to deal with reality. How can she make proposals about economic matters were our country needs to deal with real world problems if she is totally lost in a world where fantasy and wishful thinking are a substitute for hard data.

What a bad survey. Three choices saying it's nothing. One choice saying there's a problem with it. The problem is she was deceptive.

It is utterly indefensible for a white woman with blond hair and blue eyes to pretend to be a racial minority to gain any kind of advantage in education or the workplace. This just shows a flaw in character and a lack of integrity.
