Latest Elizabeth Warren claim: First nursing mother to take a bar exam in New Jersey

Elizabeth Warren has clearly learned her lesson from the ongoing criticism surrounding her assertion that she is 1/32nd Cherokee: Next time make it something that is unverifiable — kind of like this:

Warren, who had no public events yesterday, again refused an interview request from the Herald, responding to questions instead through a spokeswoman by email. Meanwhile, campaign officials scrambled to address another claim Warren’s made about her life’s story.

“I was the first nursing mother to take a bar exam in the state of New Jersey,” Warren told an audience at the Chicago Humanities Festival in 2011, in a video posted on the CHF website. When asked how Warren knows that, her campaign said: “Elizabeth was making a point about the very serious challenges she faced as a working mom — from taking an all-day bar exam when she was still breast-feeding, to finding work as a lawyer that would accommodate a mom with two small children.”

Winnie Comfort of the New Jersey Judiciary, which administers that state’s bar exam, said there’s no way to verify Warren’s claim. Comfort said women have been taking the New Jersey bar exam since 1895, but she’s not aware their nursing habits were ever tracked.

It’s impossible to know for sure, mostly because when Warren took the bar exam cameras weren’t allowed in the asi.

Here’s a short video by way of William Jacobson. Judging from the smattering of chuckles, the audience thought it was a joke, but apparently it wasn’t — at least not intentionally:

A Marxist, breast-feeding Cherokee Indian Senate candidate taking a bar exam. At least I no longer have to wonder what I’m going to dress up as for Halloween this year.

Elizabeth Warren must have been one of the inspirations behind Kristen Wiig’s “Penelope”:
