Throw Her Out!!

This is pathetic. You lie on your resume, you get fired. It is even more riduloulous that it is a job at the Board of Ethics. This type of thing cannot be tolerated, only in part because it makes the city continue to look bad.

The mayor fires people because they use words that others don't know (niggardly), yet will not fire someone who has lied about their college degree. This is the kind of thing that makes me think the recall of the mayor might actually be a good idea.

"Officials at the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics kept their chief technology officer in a $92,271-a-year job despite learning from city investigators that she had lied about having a college degree. ... "The reason it wasn't prosecuted was because it wasn't a misrepresentation of a material fact," Mr. McGhie said. "If it was required for the job, it would have been material ... but it wasn't required for the job." Official keeps job despite lying - The Washington Times: Metropolitan
