First, she lied repeatedly about her family’s Native American ancestry.
Now, Elizabeth Warren has infuriated her own brother with allegedly false claims that their father was a “janitor.”
The Boston Globe reports:
Families can also disagree on the details of a shared life. According to a family friend, David has disagreed with the way Warren calls herself the daughter of a janitor as she describes the work he found after losing a job as a salesman after his heart attack.
“When she called her dad a janitor during the early stages of this, David was furious,” said Pamela Winblood, 78, a longtime friend of David who had fallen out with him and supports Warren’s presidential bid. “He said, ‘My Dad was never a janitor.’ I said, ‘Well, he was a maintenance man.’ ” (In an interview, Warren said she had no idea why that characterization would bother her brother; she has referred to their father as a “maintenance man” in her 2014 autobiography but often as a “janitor” on the campaign trail.)

Mediaite reports that Warren’s own book makes no reference to her father as a “janitor,” instead, calling him a “maintenance man.”
In a 2012 speech, Warren described her father’s maintenance work, saying, “My father held a series of jobs, his last one was mowing lawns and cleaning swimming pools for an apartment house.”
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra notes that Warren has a history of lying about her family.
Just a few months ago, the Democratic presidential candidate came under fire for repeatedly claiming she was fired from a job for being “visibly pregnant.”
However, the Free Beacon dismantled her claims, writing, “Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a ‘2nd year’ contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job. That job is similar to the one she held the previous year, her first year of teaching. Minutes from a board meeting held two months later, on June 16, 1971, indicate that Warren’s resignation was ‘accepted with regret.’”
Warren is perhaps best known for her massive lie about her Native American ancestry, which she used on her applications to Harvard and other prestigious schools when applying for teaching jobs.
In October, the Senator took a DNA test in an attempt to prove her heritage–however, the move backfired after the Boston Globe reported her results as having a Native American ancestry “in the range of 6-10 generations ago.” This meant that she was between .09 and 1.5 percent Native American.
The Cherokee Nation slammed Warren for taking the test, claiming it was “inappropriate and wrong” and that it “undermined” tribal interests.
“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” they said in a statement. “It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
