One of the stories Elizabeth Warren has told over and over again on the campaign trail is how she was fired from her job as a school teacher for being visibly pregnant. She doubled down on the story in early October despite a video from 2007 showing Warren telling quite a different story, and despite the Free Beacon obtaining the minutes from a Riverdale Board of Education meeting showing that the board had voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a second-year contract.
Warren was in Goose Creek, S.C. on Saturday and once again told the story of how she was shown the door by the principal for being pregnant.
GOOSE CREEK, S.C.—Elizabeth Warren tells the story of how she once lost a teaching job for being pregnant.

Before she was a politician, Elizabeth Warren said she lost her teaching job because she hadn't taken the courses for a teaching certificate.

She’s still spreading that lie? Any journos there brave enough to call her out?
— PeteInJerseyJr (@PeteSuspendo) November 9, 2019
@ewarren stop lying for once

So in other words she lied her ass off

And it’s not just “right-wing media” doubting her story; even Mediaite reported on the 2007 video in which Warren said “she left her public school job after one school year because she lacked the educational credentials to qualify for a permanent position, and that she decided on her own to abandon the calling.”
Although it was common at that time, it probably didn't happen to herhttps://t.co/LJRVVONU5p

It’s her story and she’s sticking to it.
‘Holy mackerel’! Washington Free Beacon obtains records strongly suggesting Elizabeth Warren lied about being fired for being pregnant https://t.co/SqSHnvdtic
