    Did Elizabeth Warren plagiarize her fake Cherokee recipes?

    Did Elizabeth Warren plagiarize her fake Cherokee recipes?

    The Elizabeth Warren Cherokee saga is like opening up a Russian matryoshka doll, there’s always something else inside.

    Or perhaps more appropriately, like peeling back The Onion.

    Please say this is not soooooo!

    From Michael Patrick Leahy:

    The credibility of Massachusetts Democratic  Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren took another hit today as Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr released evidence that appears to confirm Ms. Warren may have plagiarized at least three of the five recipes she submitted to the 1984 Pow Wow Chow cookbook edited by her cousin Candy Rowsey.

    The two recipes, “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat” and “Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing,” appear in an article titled “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat,” written by Pierre Franey of the New York Times News Service that was published in the August 22, 1979 edition of the Virgin Islands Daily News, a copy of which can be seen here.

    Ms. Warren’s 1984 recipe for Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing  is a word-for-word copy of Mr. Franey’s 1979 recipe.

    Mrs. Warren’s 1984 recipe for Cold Omelets with Crab Meat contains all four of the ingredients listed in Mr. Franey’s 1979 recipe in the exact same portion but lists five additional ingredients. More significantly, her instructions are virtually a word for word copy of Mr. Franey’s instructions from this 1979 article.


    Elizabeth Warren’s husband also claimed to be Cherokee (Update: Another plagiarized recipe?)

    Well, most of Warren’s papers were before digital storage, so it depends on the specific institutions as to whether they created a digital archive of past theses and dissertations and articles, and in what form and how accessible it is.

    But plagiarism was harder to check in those days, too, before the internet and search engines.

    If it is even necessary at all. How does she have any credibility on anything after this? She’s been battered with it, and her reflex response to the hole she finds herself in is to try to dig her way out of it.

    You have to be a truly committed blind-eye liberal to support her now. She’s no Kennedy. And even those guys never claimed to be anything beyond shanty Irish.
