For John, BLUF: You should have Senator Warren on the show some day, just not when I am the host. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Elizabeth Warren’s academic claim to fame may be no more legitimate than her claim to be Native American
Here is the sub-headline:
The Elizabeth Warren scandal you probably never heard of, but will be an issue if she runs for president.
From Legal Insurrection, by Professor William A. Jacobson, 22 June 2018.
And it isn't just Professor Jacobson. Law Professor Gail Heriot wrote about it back in 2006.
Here is the meat of it:
There’s another scandal which, in some ways, is even bigger than Warren’s Native American problem, since it goes directly to Warren’s academic and political credibility. That scandal concerns Warren’s research methods into consumer issues which catapulted her to liberal fame.Yes, while I judge her better than our Commonwealth Attorney General, I still feel like I need check everything she says. Remember her "You didn't build that."?♠

♠ To be fare, that was President Obama's spin on what she originally said, and then doubled down on. Of course, in Senator Warren's state of residence, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Supreme Judicial Court just ruled that the Commonwealth Constitution does not allow rich people to be taxed more than others.
