Government Records Contradict Presidential Candidate

The Riverdale, New Jersey Board of Education unanimously approved a second-year teaching contract for a young Elizabeth Warren, contradicting the Democratic frontrunner’s oft-stated claims that the school fired her because she was “visibly pregnant.”

The Washington Examiner’s Collin Anderson reports:
 

Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a “2nd year” contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job. That job is similar to the one she held the previous year, her first year of teaching. Minutes from a board meeting held two months later, on June 16, 1971, indicate that Warren’s resignation was “accepted with regret.”

Warren’s claim that she was dismissed after her first year of teaching because she was pregnant has become a cornerstone of her stump speeches. She has used it to both explain her jump from teaching into the legal world as well as to showcase the difficulties that women face in the workplace. The principal of the school she worked at in the early 1970s, Warren has said, “showed [her] the door” at the end of the school year because she was “visibly pregnant.”

Warren’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment on the board of education records.

The documents emerge at a time when Warren’s campaign has surged. Ahead of the fourth Democratic debate next week, the Massachusetts senator is running neck and neck with former vice president Joe Biden. The RealClearPolitics polling average shows her trailing Biden by just 0.3 percent nationally and leading him by 2.7 percent in Iowa.

Thanks to detailed policy prescriptions and an ailing Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Warren has emerged as the progressive alternative to the relatively moderate Biden.
