So Tennessee US Representative and wannabe US Senator says he’s a lawyer, huh? Seems that Harold Ford Jr has been busted, not once but twice. By the way Harold Ford Jr … you are a law school graduate, not a lawyer. One usually needs to pass the state bar … just a helpful hint for you in the future. However, what does it matter what the truth is … I guess one is a lawyer because one says they are? I guess once again from a Southern Democrat … “it all depends on what is, is”?
If one can’t get this simple fact straight, what else can’t you get straight with the good people of Tennessee?
“I’m a lawyer. You would expect all of those who are interviewed to be truthful and candid and forthcoming.”
Great job by the Gateway Pundit finding not one, but two instances of Harold Ford Jr claiming to be a lawyer. The amazing part is he states it without batting an eyelash.
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. (Chattanooga Times)
