Another Victim of Self-Inflicted Resume Inflation

Appears to be William Bradford. I guess that the line between “plausible” and “too good to be true” may be thinner than first thought. Memo to self: When someone’s claim rests largely on War Hero status, check the record.

Listening to Bill Bennett this AM, he noted that a speaker at the recent Princeton conference on conservatism defined the essence of conservatism as “original sin”.

Since Mr. Bradford actually had to resign over this, (gosh! real consequences!), he’s ahead of Sen. Joe Biden and Gov. Bill Richardson. At least Rep. Sherrod Brown was only too lazy to check sources, rather than borrow other’s accomplishments as his own.
