Indian delegates at Dem convention seek audience with Fauxcahontas

These delegates would probably have a better chance of tracking down Hillary this week than of ever being granted a public meeting with Senate candidate, godmother of “you didn’t build that” and self-proclaimed Cherokee Indian Elizabeth Warren:

Elizabeth Warren can’t escape her Cherokee heritage controversy even at this gathering of loyal Democrats, as a contingent of skeptical American Indian delegates — including the great-grandson of Geronimo — are inviting Warren to a meeting tomorrow to explain her ancestry claims.

“I think she owes us that, she owes the Native American community here at least that,” said Stephen Lewis, a member of the Gila River Indian community. “That would go a long way in dispelling that question.”
“If you are native, there is no doubt, and if one has to research to try and ascertain if they are Native American, I would have great concerns with that and I think naturally I would just wonder if that was a vehicle she would want to use to her benefit,” said Frank LeMere, an American Indian activist of the Nebraska Winnebago Tribe. “If that is the case, shame on her.”

The delegates extended an invitation to Warren to appear at their caucus meeting tomorrow, just before she is slated to give a prime-time address on the convention stage.

She can’t make it, guys — she’s… uh… gotta clean the asi.

Dances with Identity Theft will then speak tomorrow night just before Bill Clinton reminds the audience that Barack Obama will take America Forward™ to a time when Bill Clinton was president or something.
