"School officials said a Republican candidate running for the GOP nomination in a Florida legislative seat lied about graduating from Miami University in Ohio and faked her diploma, according to a new report.

Melissa Howard

Melissa Howard, who wants a Sarasota-area state House seat, claimed that she earned a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from the Ohio school.

Florida political news website FLA News Online originally reported that Howard did not earn the degree, but briefly retracted their story after Howard provided a photo posing with a copy of her diploma.

But after further investigation and confirmation with the university, FLA News reported Saturday that the diploma was fake.

Sarasota's Herald-Tribune confirmed with the university that Howard did not graduate.

Miami University general counsel Robin Parker told the outlets that while Howard attended the university, there is no record of her earning a degree in 1994 or 1996, as she previously claimed." (More)

Update: https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/14/polit...ogy/index.html

"It was not my intent to deceive or mislead anyone. I made a mistake in saying that I completed my degree," the post read. "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."
Howard's post was later taken down and her campaign website is no longer running.


I assume her post and campaign website were both taken down after someone explained the definitions of "deceive" and "mislead" to her and how they apply to going to lengths to fake a college diploma and present it as proof of graduation, not to mention how that is more than just "saying" you completed your degree.

I'm sure there's a place for her in the Trump White House though, she should just apply there. She's blonde, has big boobs, is really bad at lying, and isn't very bright. She's perfect.
