In all the years Jon Russell has done such a miserable job in elective politics, you would have thought he'd have vetted his pet candidates a little better.
He's got two, you know: Connie Jo Freeman who the democratian lists Freeman as having been the office manager for Russell's moronic congressional run. Think in terms of being a steward on the Titanic.
The other is Caryn Plinski, woman of mystery. I say "woman of mystery" because she doesn't seem to have bothered to put up a campaign website and she doesn't seem to have even bothered to return her LifePac survey.
Run a google search on her, and you come up with practically nothing. Nothing about her qualifications (Cosmetics sales really isn't all that on a resume' for city council) and very little on her positions. Nothing about her education (or lack thereof) a sensitive subject for Jon Russell, who lied repeatedly that he had a bachelor's degree when he had no degree of any kind. (file this under the "no lie he won't tell" category.
Russell, who owns both Freeman and Plinski like the 13th Amendment was a suggestion, is shilling her as hard as he can. But given his rank political incompetence, that ain't all that much.
Meanwhile, back to Connie Jo Freeman.
Because of Russell's involvement in her campaign (He's running every aspect of it; she's just doing what he tells her) I thought I'd look at her claim of having a a rather nebulous "bachelor's degree" from something called "Southern California Community Bible College, Long Beach, CA."
So, I looked it up.
It doesn't exist.
Something called "California Bible University, Norwalk, CA" exists, but not that place.
There is, in fairness, reference to something called "Southern California Community Bible College" on the web. But is Long Beach in Norwalk? HHhmmmmm...
That said, the question I have is this: is this a fully accredited school? Or is it Matchbook University?
Well, it appears to be Matchbook University since they have no academic accreditation I could find.
What is it about Russell and education? Why does he insist on exaggerating his own, and why do others around him frequently fail to tell the whole truth about their's?
Bizarre. Someone with that background and education reduced to driving a school bus.
Things that make you go "HHhhmmmmm...."
