Is Warren Making Up Her Sexist Termination Story? It Sure Looks Like It.
David A. Cook October 10, 2019
Elizabeth Warren is at it again. First she says she is Native American, and now she is saying she got fired from a teaching job decades ago because she was pregnant. However information has been unearthed to dispute her allegations in the form of a video interview she did in 2007, as well as documents from the Riverdale Board of Education. Collin Anderson reporting for the Washington Free Beacon found the following:
The Riverdale Board of Education approved a second-year teaching contract for a young Elizabeth Warren, documents show, contradicting the Democratic presidential candidate’s repeated claims that she was asked not to return to teaching after a single year because she was "visibly pregnant."
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's claim that she was dismissed after her first year of teaching because she was pregnant has become a cornerstone of her stump speeches. She has used it to both explain her jump from teaching into the legal world as well as to showcase the difficulties that women face in the workplace. The principal of the school she worked at in the early 1970s, Warren has said, "showed [her] the door" at the end of the school year because she was "visibly pregnant."
Warren’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment on the board of education records.
Not so fast, let's listen again to what you said in 2007
Yes,she is Standing by her story, after all if you can't be a Native American, you can at least be a victim of workplace discrimination! The below Meme, courtesy of David Lunde, sums it up nicely.
