NEW: Warren Fires Back at Brown, “My Parents Are Not Fair Game”

Thursday, May 31, 2012

 

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is firing back at Senator Scott Brown for, what she believes, was an inappropriate statement.

Warren's family history, primarily her claim to be 1/32 Cherokee, has faced scrutiny in recent weeks. When Brown was asked about Warren's family history at a press conference today, he responded by questioning whether or not Warren's parents were completely truthful with her.

"My mom and dad told me a lot of things too," Brown said. "But they're not always true."

Warren released a statement today, calling the Senator out of line, and requesting an apology.

"Scott Brown's comments about my parents are totally out of line," Warren said. "I resent him questioning their honesty. My mother and father are not here to defend themselves and should be off limits. Don and Pauline Herring are not fair game and Scott Brown should apologize."

Warren went on to send an email to supporters further expressing her displeasure, and claiming she will not let go of her identity.

"Scott Brown wants me to give up my family and forget where I came from," Warren wrote in the email. "I'm not doing that-not for politics and not for anything else. I'll hold on to every memory I can. My family is part of who I am, and they will be part of who I am until I die."
