Elizabeth Warren is the Democrat United States Senator-elect from Massachusetts having defeated Republican Scott Brown in the 2012 election. Warren was appointed by President Obama as special adviser to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, where she ran "the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau." 
The fair-skinned Warren obtained affirmative action preferences by misrepresenting that she was of Native American descent, when in fact her heritage does not support her claim under widely accepted standards. "Elizabeth Warren's 'Native American' claims: if she was a Republican, the media would call her a racist."
"The pride of Harvard Law School, Ms. Warren is a hero to the political left for proposing a new bureaucracy to micromanage the services that banks can offer consumers. But she is also so politically controversial that no less a liberal lion than Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd has warned the White House that she probably isn't confirmable."
