On Monday, presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) doubled down on her claim that she was fired from a teaching job for being pregnant even though records clearly show she resigned from her job in June 1971.
Despite the breaking story getting picked up by various news organizations including the Daily Caller, Townhall, Washington Times, Fox, MSNBC, MSN, CNN did not write a single report on Warren.
In addition to records showing she resigned in 2007, Warren recounted this story and said she “did not have the proper credentials to continue teaching at the time.”
“In the summer I didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an ‘emergency certificate,’ it was called. I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me,’” she stated in an interview at the University of California, Berkeley in 2007.
On Wednesday, Warren was singing a different tune. She told an audience in Carson City, Nevada, town hall gathering she loved to working a special needs teacher. This week, the Massachusetts senator also went on to suggest that a “school principal effectively fired her from a teaching job after she became visibly pregnant,’ but the video indicates that was not the actual reason she left the job.”
