We’ve all heard of children making up lies about the dog eating their homework, but a Republican candidate in the Flathead has made up his educational background entirely, the Daily Inter Lake reported.
Cal Scott, GOP candidate for Flathead County Commissioner, told some reporters he held “several degrees, plural” from various colleges. He told others he had earned a civil engineering degree from the University of Nevada. In fact, he dropped out after just three months and has no degree from any school.
Here’s how Cal defended himself from the accusation he’d lied to four area newspapers:
“I don’t recall saying that,” he said. “I know I would’ve never said I had a bachelor’s degree; that’s not a term I would’ve used.”
If this man can’t be trusted to be honest about his own background, he probably can’t be trusted to run one of Montana’s largest counties.
