  •  Politifact scored false, but not their writeup (9+ / 0-)

    Having had a look at Politifact's writeup on this, it's inconclusive at every turn.

    Using a criminal law "beyond a reasonable" doubt standard, they didn't find anything definitive about exactly why Scott Walker, with 2.59 GPA with 30-some credits left to go, fled Marquette.

    But using a civil law preponderance of evidence standard, it's pretty clear that his personal actions must have made him a horrible presence to endure in those days as well.

    So even though the Democratic party of Wisconsin can't prove that he was kicked out of Marquette, nobody else has any proof to the contrary. And anyone who's read the Politifact writeup would have to wonder how he could not have been expelled.

    •  No proof - other than the school's statements (7+ / 0-)

      Both of which are pretty clear.

    •  OMG!! A 2.59 GPA?? (0+ / 0-)

      HAHAHA!!  How dumb do you have to be to pull those numbers??  I carried a full load in art school (in '98 at age 36), worked full time, drove 100 miles each way-5 days a week for 2 years, had a nervous breakdown AND still carried a 3.5 GPA!!  Sometimes I even got a 4.0!  And this is ART SCHOOL!  You have to produce a TON of art for EVERY class (while also fulfilling all the other crap requirements; English, math, etc.)!  I'd take regular college classes over art school classes any day!!  It's ALOT easier!

      And my parents didn't pay my way and now I'm drowning in the debt from wanting to make my life better.  And this dumbass is running (into the ground!) the state.  Go figure!!  >:(

      Hmmmm.....I need to think about that for awhile................
