Warren is coming under scrutiny after resurfaced video from 2008 contradicts a claim she is now making on her campaign trail.
The Democratic hopeful, 70, told a town hall audience in Nevada on Wednesday that she lost her job teaching special needs students in the early 1970s because she was ‘visibly pregnant’.
‘By the end of the first year, I was visibly pregnant, and the principal did what principals did in those days – wish me luck and hire someone else for the job,’ she told the crowd in Carson City.
She also tweeted that story out:
However, a YouTube clip posted in January 2008 shows Warren giving a different explanation as to why she left that school.
In the video, she tells interviewer Harry Kreisler that her undergraduate degree was in speech pathology and audiology, and, as such, she didn’t have the necessary educational requirements to continue on at the school.
