Christine O'Donnell is being accused of more lying, this time about her claim to have taken a course at England's esteemed Oxford University, which you probably could have guessed was false.


O'Donnell's LinkedIn bio page lists "University of Oxford" as one of the schools she attended, claiming she studied "Post Modernism in the New Millennium." But it turns out that was just a course conducted by an institution known as the Phoenix Institute, which merely rented space at Oxford ....

"It wasn't an official course of Oxford University," [the program's overseer Chris] Fletcher said. "It wasn't sponsored by Oxford University. We rented the space."

So she didn't actually take an Oxford University class, she took a Phoenix Institute class that was held in a building owned by Oxford University. That is basically just as impressive though. Oxford!
