Sen. Brown: Warren Should Release Job Transcripts

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is calling on his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren to authorize the release of her law school applications and all personnel files from the universities where she has taught.

The Massachusetts Republican said Tuesday that serious questions have been raised about Warren's claims to Native American ancestry and whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a college professor.

Harvard Law School professor Charles Fried said Monday that any suggestion that Warren enjoyed an affirmative action advantage in her hiring as a full professor is "false" and that Warren was recruited because of her expertise in bankruptcy and commercial law.

Warren said last week that she listed herself as having Native American heritage in law school directories because she hoped to meet people with similar roots.
