KEY POINTS
  • Elizabeth Warren sticks to her story about losing a teaching job in her 20s after she was visibly pregnant.
  • Several reports have put new skepticism on Warren’s story. In a 2007 interview, she did not specifically say the New Jersey school where she worked hired a different teacher because of her pregnancy.
  • Warren, a Massachusetts Democratic senator, is one of the leading candidates to take on President Trump in the 2020 election.
Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren stuck to her story Tuesday about losing her first teaching job because of pregnancy amid new scrutiny of her account.

Recent reports have cast doubts on the story, which the senator from Massachusetts has highlighted on the campaign trail as a key part of her background. In a pair of tweets Tuesday, Warren — one of the leading candidates aiming to challenge President Donald Trump for the White House next year — stood by her account of how she lost the position.

When I was 22 and finishing my first year of teaching, I had an experience millions of women will recognize. By June I was visibly pregnant—and the principal told me the job I'd already been promised for the next year would go to someone else.

This was 1971, years before Congress outlawed pregnancy discrimination—but we know it still happens in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. We can fight back by telling our stories. I tell mine on the campaign trail, and I hope to hear yours.
Warren has run for the White House as a champion for labor and women’s issues, arguing for systemic change to boost workers. The story about losing her teaching job falls into a sequence of events that Warren says helped to push her toward law school and eventually the Senate.

A recent surge in national polls has Warren jockeying for position with former Vice President Joe Biden at the front of the Democratic pack.

Several reports have put new skepticism on Warren’s story. In a 2007 interview at the University of California at Berkeley, she did not specifically say the New Jersey school where she worked hired a different teacher because of her pregnancy.

I was married at nineteen and graduated from college after I’d married, and my first year post-graduation I worked in a public school system with the children with disabilities. 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. 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, and I was really casting about, thinking, “What am I going to do?”

A Washington Free Beacon story published Monday also raised questions about Warren’s story. The news outlet writes that the Riverdale Board of Education in New Jersey approved Warren for a second year of teaching in a two-day-per-week job, according to school board meeting minutes.

Two months later, the minutes show Warren’s resignation was “accepted with regret,” according to the Free Beacon report.

Before she tweeted Tuesday morning, Warren first defended her story in an interview with CBS News on Monday. She said, “All I know is I was 22 years old, I was six months pregnant, and the job that I had been promised for the next year was going to someone else.”

In a statement to CBS, the senator also explained the differences between how she described her departure from teaching in 2007 and the story she told when she became a more public figure.

“After becoming a public figure I opened up more about different pieces in my life, and this was one of them. I wrote about it in my book when I became a U.S. senator,” she said.

When Hillary Clinton lies she has her lies prepared beforehand and has run them through the people who write her checks. Nobody important gets hurt by her snake tongue. If by some massive fucking cosmic misfortune Warren became president she'll probably get WWIII started by some stupid little lie she never needed to make.

Something something female life choices no responsibility gender inequality reee.

she's a known liar so i don't believe a word she says but even if it's true so what? a pregnant woman wouldn't be able to work as much and once she gives birth she would be busy with the baby meaning she wouldn't be able to work then either, so why wouldn't they let her go?
Because feminists have a hard time grasping space-time and the biological clock.

How many stories of bullshit oppression has this Ivy Leaguer multimillionaire senator told to put herself over?

1. 1/1024th, with stories about her parents eloping and all that bullshit.
2. Being sexually harassed and literally chased around by a horndog colleague...who had childhood polio.
3. Being fired from a job due to pregnancy when the board unanimously voted to give to her for a second year, then accepted her turning down the gig with "deep regret"

Where there's smoke, there's smoke signals, I mean, fire.
