Lieawatha Warren’s Ex Co-Founded DNA Testing Company


The ex-husband of Liewatha, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, co-founded a DNA testing company and wrote one of the first computer codes for making genetic comparisons, The Washington Examiner reports.

Jim Warren was involved in the kinds of testing that Warren used to prove [disprove] she is a Native-American.

He was a co-founder of FamilyTreeDNA and worked with Carlos Bustamante, the Stanford geneticist who tested her using Mexican, Peruvian, and Columbian DNA. His conclusion was that there’s a “strong suggestion” Warren had Native-American ancestry 6 to 10 generations ago.

Jim Warren died in 2006. Although they had two children together, there was no love lost between them.


Numerous experts said that the Native American gene databases are too thin to make definitive conclusions about ancestry as far back in a person’s lineage as Warren laid claim to again this week.

One leading Native American anthropologist — Dr. Kim Tallbear — characterized Warren’s Monday press conference and declarations as just the latest incidence in a decades-old practice of white Americans co-opting the Native American identity when it suits them.

Native Americans were insulted by her latest claims and all the ones before. They told her to just STOP.

She is nothing but a race hustler.

I suspect that feeling the heat for non-disclosure she had a fake DNA study fabricated.

If she was going to release a fake study, why not shoot for something that actually showed a significant % of desired DNA, like around 25% (usually considered the minimum to make a claim for racial group inclusion). 99.9% proves she’s one of the whitest people in the USA! At first I didn’t understand how this was supposed to convince ANYBODY, then I realize that, in their FANTASY REALITY, a man can be a man one day and a woman the next day just depending on if he “feels” like a woman….at least until “she’s” in a bathroom with a teenage girl and then “she” decides to be a “he” again…. Talk about Wishful Thinking….Warren not only believes she can be a Cherokee just because she wills it, but that everyone else needs to believe it to because she believes it. We have a word for people who project their fantasies like this: DELUSIONAL!
