Warren fundraises off of pregnancy discrimination as her story draws scrutiny

Warren fundraises off of pregnancy discrimination as her story draws scrutiny

News verified that Warren's resignation was "accepted with regret" around her sixth month of pregnancy.

"Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is standing firm in the face of scrutiny, and so are her supporters, who are sharing their own stories on Twitter of when they faced discrimination because of pregnancy", Harvey wrote.

The day after the CBS story, Warren defended herself in a tweet, saying: "When I was 22 and finishing my first year of teaching, I had an experience millions of women will recognize".

"By the end of the school year, I was pretty obviously pregnant". She wasn't fired for being visibly pregnant, she HID her pregnancy to AVOID being fired. And now some outlets have found a 2007 interview Warren gave in which she presents the story in a different light. "I do not believe in unilateral disarmament", she said then on MSNBC. As the Free Beacon noted, Warren's first book, published the year after she became a US senator, includes her current claim that she was sacked for being pregnant.

The public is generally aware of Warren's long-held, false claim that she has Native American ancestry.

In a totally unsurprising turn of events, a lot of conservatives are choosing not to believe Elizabeth Warren's story about being fired from a teaching job because she was pregnant.

Her campaign reported raising $24.6 million in the third quarter of 2019, slightly behind the $25.3 million raised by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, the only other Democrat of the 19 running to swear off traditional fundraisers. Namely, that Warren was only in a temporary teaching position because she didn't have the credits and would have to go back to school if she wanted to keep her position.

The Republican National Committee seized the moment Tuesday afternoon in an email claiming Warren had been "caught lying", focusing on a 2007 interview where Warren described leaving her position in different terms than she has since her campaign's start. She didn't say that in the past.

The next month, a story about the school board hiring a replacement said Warren had "resigned for personal reasons", even though the board had voted to "appoint" Warren to the same speech pathology job that April, according to an earlier report. "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.' I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years".

The pitch echoes parts of the story Warren has repeated time and again on the campaign trail, noting that it was her "dream" to become a public school teacher.

- Lyz a real sweetheart (@lyzl) October 8, 2019When I was 7 months pregnant in 2012, my boss hauled me into his office and chewed me out for "putting [him] in a real bind by going on maternity leave". I did that for a year, and then that summer I didn't have the education courses, so I was on an 'emergency certificate, ' it was called.

"After I became visibly pregnant, I was told that the job I'd been promised for next year would go to someone else", Warren said on social media. She added: "And the principal did what principals did in those days: they wished you luck, showed you the door, and hired someone else for the job".

"No, I will not be forced to make changes in how I raise money", Warren stated.

"I'm not going to do the big-dollar fundraisers".

Now, all of this has come to light and it appears that Warren has been claiming to be a victim when the facts say differently.
