Rand Paul caught lying about his college record - Salon.com

Rand Paul caught lying about his college record - Salon.com: "... while Paul studied English and biology at Baylor, he left the university after three years in 1984, before obtaining a bachelor’s degree in either field. Despite lacking an undergraduate degree, Paul went on to graduate from Duke’s medical school in 1988. A spokesman for the senator subsequently clarified that he does not, in fact, hold degrees in English and biology, as he’d claimed.

This isn’t the first time Paul has landed in hot water for how he’s handled his college record. During his 2010 Senate campaign, Paul faced criticism for not correcting an interviewer who described him as “a graduate of Baylor University.”

Dr. Paul: Not board-certified, but self-certified - Salon.com

Dr. Paul: Not board-certified, but self-certified - Salon.com: Rand Paul misses the point. He is right that the questions about his National Board of Ophthalmology have nothing to do with issues of national policy.

They have nothing to do with the federal debt. They have nothing to do with the decision to go to war in Iraq or Afghanistan. And they have nothing to do with plans to shutter the U.S. Department of Education.

They have to do with trust.

Report: Court rules wearing unearned medals a crime - Stripes

Report: Court rules wearing unearned medals a crime - Stripes: Lying about receiving a military medal is protected speech, but there’s no right to wear a combat decoration that hasn’t been earned, a federal appeals court said Wednesday.

The difference, said a divided panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, is that lying is speech, but wearing a medal is conduct, according to a report in the San Francisco Chrnonicle.
