Future U.S. Congressmen Forced To Withdraw From Harvard For Cheating....

A group of Harvard students taking an "Introduction to Congress" course were caught cheating and forced to withdraw. And my understanding it was a 'open book' test.

Maybe that's why Congress is so screwed up and has a low rating.

Really - you can't make this stuff up.

Here are a couple of links to that scandal.

2. Who is the future Congressperson involved?

Or is that just your way of hyping the story?

4. Including Ted Kennedy

 

Who was expelled from Harvard in 1951 for cheating. I know you meant it as hype, but you may want to turn down the gloat meter.

9. When I was an undergrad we had a group of pastoral students who were cheating in a large general

education class. They justified it by saying that if they didn't do well in the class they would not get into seminary and thus would not be able to serve Jesus. Really.
