In all the brouhaha about Elizabeth Warren's claim of Native American ancestry, a major item has been overlooked by the so-called liberal media. In the 1980's, after Scott Brown appeared in Cosmo, he was interviewed by the New York Times. In that interview, he claimed to be the great-grandson of Arthur Prentice Rugg, a chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court in the 19th century, and he said he found it amusing to be reading cases in which his great-grandfather was involved. Here's a snip from the original article:
Until a few weeks ago, Scott Brown was a 22-year-old first-year law student at Boston College Law School who frequently ran across opinions written by his great-grandfather, Arthur Prentice Rugg, former Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court.
"I read many of his cases this year," he said, "which I found amusing."
The problem for Scott? He was not Rugg's great-grandson, they were only distantly related. The Times had to print a retraction a few days later.

So, to those voters who continue to harp on Warren for supposedly misrepresenting her ancestry, I have one simple question: Who are you going to vote for now?
