Jim Forrester, NC Republican State Senator, caught lying and resume padding. He should be announcing his resignation shortly. #BlueNC

Forrester resume misleads ::

Only not so much with the integrity or ability. 

State Senator Jim Forrester (R-Gaston), lead proponent of the anti-same-sex-union amendment set to appear on NC ballots next spring, may have padded the resume he's been running on for many years.

On both his campaign website and the Gaston County GOP website, Forrester claims to be a Fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine.

But Michael Barry, the executive director of the American College of Preventive Medicine, says Forrester is not and has never been a Fellow of the College.
The false claims are still up on his campaign website as I read all the stories breaking this morning.

When I talked about the folks who support the anti-gay marriage legislation and amendment to the NC state constitution as being morally retarded in an earlier post, I had no idea a state legislator would be racing to humiliate himself and his electorate as a prime example of exactly the sort of despicable human being to which I was referring.

Hat tip to Blue NC and Pam's House Blend for their early coverage.
