A Florida state house candidate's college degree has been called into question -- by the very university that she claimed to have graduated from.
Melissa Howard, a Republican who is running for the Florida House of Representatives District 73, claimed to have graduated from Miami University, in Oxford, Ohio.
But last week, FLA News reported that Howard didn't have a college degree from Miami University.
The university also pointed out a few critical flaws on the image of the diploma that Howard had briefly posted on social media.
The image showed that she received a Bachelor of Science in Marketing degree, but the university said, "We have no such record of a degree." That's because the university says its degree for marketing majors, both then and now, is called a Bachelor of Science in Business.
Also, Howard's major while she was enrolled at Miami University had been retailing, and the degree for that program would have been a Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences, according to the university.
The picture of the diploma included the signatures of James Garland, who was the president of the university in 1996, and of Robert C. Johnson, who was actually the dean of the graduate school, which would not have been the proper school, the university statement said.
I'm sure it's fake news. Facts be damned!
