Brown aide calls ancestry issue test of Warren’s integrity

US Senator Scott Brown has turned questions over Democrat Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Native American ancestry into a key strategy in his bid to retain his Senate seat.

Almost every day for more than two weeks, the Brown campaign or a Republican surrogate has highlighted the latest bit of news to emerge on the subject, often citing articles on conservative websites in a bid to coax more coverage from the mainstream news media. Warren’s failure to offer a full and concise answer on what role her ancestry has played in her professional career has left an opening that has allowed the questions to linger.
