By The Blaze. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who is running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, was reminded once again during a campaign stop in Georgia over the weekend that she lied about having Native American heritage.
While speaking at a campaign stop outside Atlanta, a heckler shouted over Warren seeking answers as to why she, for decades, lied about her heritage. . .
According to witnesses, security escorted the heckler out of the Central Gwinnett High School gymnasium as Warren continued on with her speech. The crowd cheered and shouted Warren’s name as security handled the man.
Washington Free Beacon editor David Rutz reported that the heckler was holding a “1/2020” sign, a reference to Warren’s minuscule Native American heritage.
It’s not clear if she ever addressed why she lied about having Native American heritage. However, she told local Atlanta news station WSB-TV afterward that she “shouldn’t have done it,” referring to lying about her background.

Elizabeth Warren Heckled at Georgia Campaign Stop
By Fox News. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was once again reminded that she exaggerated her Native American ancestry and was heckled during a campaign stop in Georgia.
While introducing herself to a crowd of about 1,000 supporters in a Lawrenceville high school, a man shouted “Why did you lie?” Warren replied back “Be easy, be easy,” while the crowd chanted her name and clapped. . .
The test revealed she could be anywhere between 1/64th and 1/1,204th Native American. In early February, she apologized to the Cherokee Nation for taking the test, which angered some tribal leaders who felt that being apart of the nation was rooted in centuries of culture and laws, not through DNA tests.
The incident came just days after Warren suggested President Trump “may not even be a free person” in 2020. (Read more from “Elizabeth Warren Heckled at Georgia Campaign Stop” HERE)
