Scott Walker's college career: Oops, he did it again

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

You have to give Scott Walker credit for creative language when discussing his educational background. He dropped out of Marquette without a degree, but he has spoken about entering the workforce "before I finished off my college degree."

This week, in Mosinee on a "brown bag" visit, he elaborated:

"It comes down to me packing my own lunch. All the way back from college when I worked to get through school to even today as executive..."

He's careful enough with the language not to tell an outright lie. But he's certainly good at giving a false impression, and that has served him well in his career so far.
