Skip to comments.Thom Tillis: Fabulist (NC Senate)
Posted on 03/24/2014 5:26:20 AM PDT by cotton1706
Thom Tillis is the Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives. He is also a Republican Senate candidate. He is not a graduate of the University of Maryland College Park. Thats what Thom Tillis has claimed. But now he is having to admit it is not true.
Thats not all. Tillis has a new ad out. It shows Tillis in his front yard, picking up a newspaper, talking about his everyman street cred with light music in the background. The ad is titled Paper Route and highlights Tillis, the everyman done good, and his first job as a paper boy.
Tillis has actually done far better than he wants you to think in the ad. His real house is not the one in the advertisement. His real house in on a golf course and valued close to a million dollars. He also has a town home in Davidson, NC, right on the water.
Good for Thom Tillis being successful. We should applaud that. I want a lake house or a beach house. But first Tillis got caught fibbing about the school from which he graduated. Now hes playing every man using someone elses home. Its worth noting that one of the attacks on Matt Bevin in Kentucky is that he listed MIT as a school he went to. He actually did go to MIT for a certificate program in entrepreneurship. But if the attack is solid on Bevin, it should be more so on Tillis who claims he graduated from the University of Maryland College Park.
Tillis actually was working and 37 when he got his degree. He got it via the distance learning program at University of Maryland University College. According to the News Observer

Now we have an establishment candidate in the same fix!
Greg Brannon for Senate!
This guy’s so pathetic, maybe even Rove will be embarrassed of him .
He got it via the distance learning program at University of Maryland University College.
I'd rather Bevin or Brannon, but this criticism is lame, IMO.
But I don't vote in NC. Those folks better gt it right because this seat is ripe for the picking.
“Oh c’mon - this is really splitting hairs:”
Of course it is. So was the MIT thing in Kentucky. But that was blown up to protect McConnell.
So tit for tat. They want to take down our guy with this petty crap, so be it, the same goes for them.
I will vote for Greg Brannon.
“Oh c’mon - this is really splitting hairs”
What is the difference between:
stretching the truth
I prefer to vote for people who simply tell the truth as it is instead of “splitting hairs”. Once the truth becomes subjective instead of objective, it is gone.
