Elizabeth Warren Speaks With Forked Tongue

First she’s a Native American. Now, she was apparently “the first nursing mother to take a bar exam in the state of New Jersey.”

Cue campaign 
When asked how Warren knows that, her campaign said: “Elizabeth was making a point about the very serious challenges she faced as a working mom — from taking an all-day bar exam when she was still breast-feeding, to finding work as a lawyer that would accommodate a mom with two small children.”
Ah, so she was merely “making a point,” not telling actual truth.  I love it when liberals “make points.”
The Boston Herald did some digging and found that Warren’s “point” isn’t even accurate.  While the state (thankfully) doesn’t track whether female law students are breastfeeding while studying for the bar exam, the suggestion that Warren was a trailblazing woman in the field of law is outrageous (emphasis mine):
Winnie Comfort of the New Jersey Judiciary, which administers that state’s bar exam, said there’s no way to verify Warren’s claim. Comfort said women have been taking the New Jersey bar exam since 1895, but she’s not aware their nursing habits were ever tracked.
