Democrat Harold Ford Jr. is found guilty!
Ford Impersonates a lawyer on CNN with Wolf Blitzer
Harold Ford Jr. says, “I’m a lawyer. You would expect all of those who are interviewed to be truthful and candid and forthcoming.”
Yeah, Harold… you sure would!
But, theres a problem…
Harold Ford Jr. never passed the bar exam, which is nothing to condemn the man about. But, the fact that he goes around and calls himself a lawyer IS a problem.
The Chattanooga Times also finds Harold Ford Jr. guilty as charged for impersonating a lawyer:
Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Harold Ford Jr. referred to himself as a lawyer earlier this week, but the congressman has not passed the bar exam.
Michael Powell, senior adviser to the Ford campaign, said U.S. Rep. Ford took the Tennessee bar exam in February 1997 and failed. He said that was the only time Rep. Ford has taken the test.
Rep. Ford, of Memphis, got his law degree from the University of Michigan Law School in 1996, according to his congressional Web site.
He said Tuesday during a meeting with Chattanooga Times Free Press editors and reporters that Republican opponent Bob Corker has said the next senator should be a businessman and not a lawyer.
“I told Senator (Lamar) Alexander, I said, ‘I won’t hold it against you if I’m elected, and there’s two lawyers in the delegation who try their hardest to work through the issues,” Rep. Ford said.
Corker campaign spokesman Todd Womack said, “If Congressman Ford will stretch the truth about his own resume, what else will he stretch the truth about?” Mr. Powell said it is his understanding that Rep. Ford was joking when he made reference to being a lawyer during Tuesday’s meeting.
Here is another instance on CNN where Harold Ford Jr. claims to be a lawyer.
It doesn’t look like Harold Ford Jr. was joking in that interview!
