Readers Write: Columnist gets it wrong on Warren

The Island Now

Karen Rubin wrote that Elizabeth Warren has been flawless up until now – her character and her campaign unimpeachable.

Warren’s climb to prominence has been built on a lie claiming to be an American Indian.

Even real American Indians have disputed her claim and distanced themselves from her. I have as much American Indian blood as she does and

I’m a third-generation American of Italian descent.

I did, however, meet several real American Indians last summer when I visited Yellowstone. I submit that I am now an American Indian just like Elizabeth Warren.

I think I’ll apply to Harvard.

Warren is a joke.
