All we know is that Elizabeth Warren continues to believe in family lore, and that geneologists have documented that her great-great-great grandmother was part Cherokee. Is this really any different that Brits who take pride in distant associations to Kings and Queens? But, I digress. Scott Brown apparently really did lie about his ancestry to get some media attention, and the lie resulted in the New York Times issuing a retraction. Let's hope the liberal media picks up this story that is sure to scandalize the holier-than-thou segment of the right wing. ...b-b-but this is different LOL. Scott Brown, Arthur Prentice Rugg, and misrepresentation of ancestry... - Weston, MA Patch ...In the 1980's, after Scott Brown appeared in Cosmo, he was interviewed by the New York Times. In that interview, he claimed to be the great-grandson of Arthur Prentice Rugg, a chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court in the 19th century, and he said he found it amusing to be reading cases in which his great-grandfather was involved. Here's a snip from the original article: "Until a few weeks ago, Scott Brown was a 22-year-old first-year law student at Boston College Law School who frequently ran across opinions written by his great-grandfather, Arthur Prentice Rugg, former Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court. "'I read many of his cases this year," he said, "which I found amusing.'" The problem for Scott? He was not Rugg's great-grandson, they were only distantly related. The Times had to print a retraction a few days later.
