Pretentious Moi?

Fake Oxford Degree

Ali Kordan, Iran’s interior minister, faces impeachment after admitting to padding his resume with a bogus degree from Oxford University, The Guardian reports. Kordan says he won’t resign, though he is willing to apologize. In the meantime, he has President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s support. Ahmadinejad has claimed that because Kordan did not fake the degree while in office, the impeachment proceedings are illegal, and back in August, during debates about Kordan’s appointment, Ahmadinejad dismissed degrees as mere “torn paper” and irrelevant to public service.
