The host of a Boston radio show, Howie Carr, revealed Friday he once tried to obtain DNA from a pen cap Senator Elizabeth Warren removed with her teeth before signing a book six years ago. Now, he says he plans to try it again unless she agrees to take a DNA test.
Carr even offered to pay for and send her an overnight DNA kit and asked her to take the test with him "at the cheese shop of your choosing in Harvard square."

The radio host says its time to resolve the dispute over her claims of being from Cherokee ancestry. "I have a backup plan, but it will involve some sneaky stuff, which I’ve tried before," Carr wrote in the Boston Herald.
The quest to get the senator to submit to a DNA test began during her 2012 Senate run when one of Carr's friends tried to hand her a copy of "Pow Wow Chow," the India cookbook that she submitted a recipe to, and a capped pen.
"Before she realized she was being pranked, Fauxcahontas pulled the cap off the pen—with her teeth," Carr said. "I sent the pen off for testing. But alas, there wasn’t enough saliva on it." The reason Carr wants Warrens DNA so badly is to see if her claims she is of Cherokee descent hold up to scrutiny.
"I am very proud of my heritage," she said in 2012. "These are my family stories. This is what my brothers and I were told by my mom and dad, my mammaw and pappaw. This is our lives. And I'm very proud of it." Among those who don't believe her claim is President Trump who gave her the nickname "Pocahontas" as a jab at her claim.
