Democratic Senator and Presidential hopeful, Elizabeth Warren is not backing down from her recent claim that a job she had been promised was given to someone else because Warren was 6 months pregnant.
Before Warren was desperate for votes naiton-wide, she told a different version of this event. Her version in the past was that she was not qualified for long term employment and chose to take “years” off after giving birth to her child instead of pursuing the classes required for certification.
Fox News reported on this past interview.
Several times on the campaign trail, Warren suggested that she was effectively fired from a school where she taught children with special needs because she was “visibly pregnant.” However, in a 2007 interview, Warren appeared to have left on her own accord.
“My first-year post-graduation, I worked — it was in a public school system but I worked with the children with disabilities. I did that for a year, and then that summer I actually didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an ’emergency certificate,’ it was called,” Warren said at the time. “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?’”
In an interview with CBS News on Monday, Warren stood by what she has repeatedly said on the campaign trail.
“All I know is I was 22 years old, I was 6 months pregnant, and the job that I had been promised for the next year was going to someone else. The principal said they were going to hire someone else for my job,” Warren told CBS News.
Her campaign also issued a statement in an attempted to explain the discrepancy between now and 2007, implying that she has learned to “open up” since she became a public figure.”
It is common for politicians to attempt to morph into whatever they believe appeals to voters, and Warren, more than her competition, has a clear track record of misrepresenting herself to gain an advantage in the job market.
