Scott's Top Aide Lied About His Education

The Miami Herald caught Adam Hollingsworth, now Florida Gov. Rick Scott's (R) chief of staff, lying about his academic credentials.

"Hollingsworth didn't just verbally deceive people. He twice explicitly allowed his former employer, CSX Corporation, to issue press releases in 1998 and 2002 saying he graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree. Hollingsworth had no degree at the time. He earned one years later."

Said Hollingsworth: "I am not proud of this and I deeply apologize for this misrepresentation. I have learned from this failure in judgment and know that, over the last several years, my life and character have and will continue to grow from this."
