The Senate's sense of humor

Despite her expertise and heritage, self identified Native American

Democratic Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren will not serve on the Senate Committee on Indian (sic) Affairs in the next Congress, insiders on Capitol Hill confirm.

Instead a  white women, Senator-elect Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), home to the Sioux and its subgroups of various Lakotas has been appointed to the committee.

The multi millionaire Warren has been appointed to committees better suited to her true status.

Warren has already been tapped to serve on the Senate Banking Committee, as well as the Aging and Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee.

It is unclear if she will work on legislation pertaining to Native American affairs in the next Congress.

The authentic Native Americans must be relieved about that. Bankers?  Not so much.
