During the first Massachusetts Senate debate between Sen. Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren, the incumbent Brown said to the audience that, "Professor Warren claimed that she was a Native American, a person of color, and as you can see, she's not."

Earlier this summer, the Brown campaign repeatedly attacked Warren, a Harvard professor, for being listed as Native American in a university directory. But whatever Warren's ancestry, Boston reporters and others expressed surprise that Brown claimed to discern a person's lineage just by looking at her.

Yet when asked about his Native American-detection abilities at a press conference Tuesday, Brown denied ever having made the statement about Warren. Watch the video above and decide for yourself.
