Well, well, well, when you turn over all the stones, there’s bound to be something there.
Earlier this week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren proudly told America about some DNA results linking her to some Native American 6-10 generations ago. Needless to say, she became a laughing spectacle. President Trump even got in on it.
But nothing could prepare you for this breaking news! Her ex-husband cofounded the DNA company in the top that off with a cherry, he was one of the first to write computer codes for making genetic comparisons.
His name was Jim Warren, and throughout his career, he’s been involved in all types of genetic testing, so one would think that Sen. Warren had inside track to having the results that she wanted, to prove her point so to speak.
You can’t make this stuff up!

Jim Warren’s career involved him in the kinds of genetic testing that Elizabeth Warren controversially invoked this month to prove that she had Native American ancestry.
One of the two other co-founders of his testing company, FamilyTreeDNA, has worked with Carlos Bustamante, the Stanford University geneticist who administered a DNA test at Elizabeth Warren’s request.
The code, known in the company as the “Warren Project,” was specifically for Y-DNA testing, which tests for patrilineal ancestry — which therefore could not have been used in Elizabeth Warren’s test administered by Bustamante. FamilyTreeDNA declined to respond to inquiries about whether the project was named for Jim Warren.
Jim Warren is publicly listed as one of FamilyTreeDNA’s co-founders, along with Bennett Greenspan and Max Blankfeld, who still work together for the company.
Greenspan told ABC News this week he had worked with Carlos Bustamante. Greenspan explained that it can be difficult to test for Native American ancestry because Native Americans “have historically been unwilling and uninterested in participating in this game of identification.”
As the article points out, FamilyTreeDNA specializes in Y-DNA analysis. In recent years, they have branched out to autosomal DNA, but they are best known for Y-DNA testing, and they have the most active family DNA groups that, since they use Y-DNA analysis, are surname-based. Not everyone who shares Y-DNA also shares the surname for several reasons including the obvious fact that your father may not be the man listed on your birth certificate. But, more likely, Y-DNA lines extend beyond the use of surnames, at least in Europe.
I’m sure that Warren got expert help and advice, and I suspect that she was told about the weaknesses in her test, but she decided to run with it anyway thinking that the press wouldn’t know and wouldn’t care that her assertion was bogus. She was right about that, but she didn’t anticipate that many among the public had the expertise to smoke out her scam. As someone on TV pointed out, Trump got inside her head, and she couldn’t help herself.
Christine Blasey Ford counseled people on how to take and beat lie detector tests and Warren’s ex-hubby ran a DNA place that could swing in any direction for components such as Latin American DNA elements counting as Native Americans in Arizona if needed. What a scam.
Well, he should sue her for continuing to use his last name sullying his character.
