Another politician lies about her degree
#1
The part I don't get is why they think they could possibly get away with it... Although I do know lots of people do so in the regular business world, a politician is usually under a lot of scrutiny.

I hope she is able to set an example now.... Of the legal ramifications of fraud, forgery, etc.

Seriously, I hope she faces criminal penalties.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez probably has a fake degree too. She claims to have double majored in Economics and International Relations which she clearly knows nothing on either subject. It’s mesmerizing watching her explain things.

Quote:“I would like to apologize to my family and my supporters for this situation,” Howard said in a statement. “It was not my intent to deceive or mislead anyone. I made a mistake in saying that I completed my degree. What I did was wrong and set a bad example for someone seeking public service. I am staying in the race and intend to win and lead by example from now on.”

"This fake diploma just magically appeared beside me and I didn't know what to do in the moment except smile for the camera."

Well at least her husband recovered from that cardiac incident, apparently. Certainly that was real, right? Wink
