The epic saga of Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren (aka “Dances with Identity Theft”) continues. Personally, I don’t like finding out that politicians who are running for office in order to “serve the people” were once involved with a cookbook. It’s all too Twilight Zone-ish for my taste — but admittedly the metaphor isn’t much of a stretch.

Many moons ago, Warren submitted recipes for a Native American-themed cookbook. We’ll call Elizabeth’s latest recipe “cooked goose in hot water”:

Elizabeth Warren was touting her claim of Cherokee heritage as early as 1984, according to a cookbook titled “Pow Wow Chow” edited by her cousin that includes Warren’s recipes for a savory crab omelet and spicy barbecued beans.

The cookbook, edited by Warren’s cousin Candy Rowsey, is a compilation of “special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families,” according to the introduction in a copy obtained by the Herald.

Warren, who has been under fire for claiming Indian lineage despite a lack of documentation, is identified as “Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee” under each of five recipes she contributes in the cookbook, published in 1984 by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum located in Muskogee. Warren is not listed as an official member of the Cherokee tribe and she has been unable thus far to document her claim of any Native American heritage.
[...]
News of Warren’s Cherokee recipes comes as outraged members of the tribe — including a Warren supporter — demanded she release her employment records following reports that she has no documentation to prove her Native American ancestry.

By way of Twitchy (who are collecting the mockery for full display as we speak), here’s a review of the cookbook at Amazon:

Another satisfied customer!

I’m told Warren’s recipe for Macaroni & Cochise isn’t too bad though.
