In the news this week, two videos emerged showing Sen. Scott Brown supporters and staff shouting war whoops and performing tomahawk chops in an apparent reference to Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Native American heritage.

The former state drug lab chemist accused of faking test results, forging paperwork and mixing samples was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of witness intimidation and one count of falsifying her academic record.

We cover those stories and more in Radio Boston’s week in review.

Guest:

  • David Boeri, WBUR reporter
