Delaware GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell claimed for years that she graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University when she obtained her degree just this past summer. She also claimed in a lawsuit that she was denied the opportunity to take master’s degree classes at Princeton, and the earning power it would have provided, even though she never was accepted into Princeton. Now, Greg Sargent has unearthed another incorrect O’Donnell claim. (h/t TPM)

..she claims she studied at the University of Oxford — but a look at her actual record shows this is at best an exaggeration and at worst an outright falsehood.

O’Donnell’s LinkedIn bio page lists “University of Oxford” as one of the schools she attended, claiming she studied “Post Modernism in the New Millennium.” But it turns out that was just a course conducted by an institution known as the Phoenix Institute, which merely rented space at Oxford.

What’s more, the woman who oversaw Phoenix Institute’s summer program at Oxford tells me O’Donnell’s claim about studying at Oxford is “misleading.”
