Rand Paul Gets Three Pinocchios For Twice Claiming Biology Degree
Paul never completed undergraduate work but was, nevertheless, accepted at Duke to study medicine. His staff says that, in effect, is a biology degree. Paul also said he has an English degree, however, which is not covered in Medical school.
“In the jocular bantering with the host, Dr. Rand Paul mentioned ‘degree,’ but anyone who has read Dr. Paul’s official biography on his Web site can see that he was accepted early into one of the most prestigious medical schools in the country — Duke University School of Medicine,” said Brian Darling, Paul’s senior communications director. “Dr. Paul finished the requirements for medical school in two and one half years. While in college, Dr. Paul did study biology and English. He has no college degree and has a medical degree.”[su_center_ad]
…Paul studied biology (and English) at Baylor, but he didn’t earn a degree. There’s no excuse for resume-inflation, even when it’s jocular. We can’t quite say this is worthy of Four Pinocchios, but the senator should be more careful in the future.
