Re what you wrote: “A Superior Court judge in Los Angeles lost his job and was disbarred b/c of fake academic and military claims.”
I hate to say this, but it does not surprise me. It is very difficult to get people to do their jobs, like check credentials. “Oh, he’s a JUDGE, no need to check anything” is what they think. But I think differently, after seeing this kind of cr*p for the past 25 years.
Jeb Bush claims he has a 4-year degree from a university in Texas that he managed to get in only 2-1/2 years. While I have no doubt some people can in fact do work in a short time span, I would not be surprised to discover if 1-1/2 years of required coursework is omitted from his degree, and they just gave it to him anyway, because he got his girlfriend pregnant at the time and then married her. Something like that. And maybe that is why he knew he could never pursue an advanced degree; because then the fraud would be discovered.
I don’t know if that is what happened; I’m just saying: it would not surprise me in the least if in fact that was true.
So your claim does not surprise me either, re the judge.
What is so disappointing is that people are out there who do work very hard for their degrees, who do believe it is a stepping stone, but, in this country: fraud has replaced honest, hard work as the stepping stone, and it just happens too often.
That needs to stop. It is a waste of the real talent in this country, to keep such talented people down, down, down because you found a fraud you can control and you own the media and/or law enforcement as well.
It is a shame. Really a shame. And people who participate in that kind of white collar crime need to go to jail for very long periods of time. Even if they are judges, former governors, and dare I say it, and yes I will, former presidents. It is a terrible thing to do to honest hardworking citizens of this country, to deny opportunity because you need to have your fake in there instead of a qualified person.
Obviously, that judge is compromised. Who knows why he makes the rulings he does; he needs to keep his secret first and foremost.
Obviously, that TAMU administrator is compromised, and he fired people, too.
How would you like to lose your job because a fake fired you?
Not good what is happening with respect to this kind of fraud. Not good at all.
We need to toughen up laws and sentence people to jail who violate The Stolen Valor Act and fraudulently haul off with hundreds of thousands or millions in taxpayer loot.
Hope someone who cares about the military, honest taxpayers and students is reading this and waking up.
The judge lied on his application to the governor.
Jeb Bush graduated from UT as a Phi Beta Kappa. He’s been in politics for over 12 yrs - I’m sure his background has been checked and re-checked. There is no reason to believe it is fake.
