Drip, drip, drip

Elizabeth Warren needs to end the Cherokee saga. Now.

I still count myself among the majority of Massachusetts residents who don't have a problem with family lore that told her she has Native-American heritage.

But with an admission she has told two employers about that heritage, in apparent contradiction of earlier statements, I do see a campaign in disarray, either unable to get at the bottom line or unwilling to face reality that this issue simply will not go away until they address it thoroughly.

Voters may not care about her heritage or even whether it helped her get jobs from employers looking to fill diversity needs. But they will care about a candidate and a campaign that can't seem to shoot straight.

The state Democratic nominating convention seems to be the perfect time to air all the laundry, dirty or otherwise.

It does seem as if it won't go away, is it a big deal, shouldn't be. But the Dems always hold up political correctness, affirmative action, helping the lower class etc as such virtues, but then to begin to peel the onion of this story and find that someone was using the system for personal gain, a lawyer to boot, and this will be with us till november.
