Christine O’Donnell, the Republican nominee for Joe Biden’s Delaware senate seat has been accused of pretending that she studied at Oxford University.
O’Donnell is a member of the radical right wing ‘Tea Party’ movement in America. She advocates the teaching of creationism and once led a campaign against masturbation.
O’Donnell was described on professional networking websites as having received a certificate in ‘Post modernism in the New Millennium’ from Oxford University. Ms O’Donnell had in fact attended a summer school run by the private Phoenix Institute, an unaffiliated institution that rents teaching rooms in Oxford.
Ms O’Donnell said in a statement that she was not responsible for setting up the account on the networking site Zoominfo.com.
