(Newser) – Oxford isn't the only school Delaware senate candidate Christine O'Donnell didn't attend, no matter how many times she might say that she did. "Claremont Graduate University has no student or education record for an individual named Christine O'Donnell," says a unequivocal statement from the school in answer to the latest fib to surface in the Tea Partier's campaign. O'Donnell lists "Claremont Graduate University" on her LinkedIn profile, just as she lists Oxford, which she also never attended.

She also mentions in her campaign site bio a 2002 "graduate fellowship" from California's Claremont Institute think tank, which does exist, but it doesn't offer a "graduate" fellowship, which would imply one has graduated from college. O'Donnell did graduate—from Fairleigh Dickinson—just this month, though she had been claiming she graduated years ago, notes Talking Points Memo.

Lawd, Lawd... As a media darling myself, I'm no stranger to the lamestream media launching vicious attacks against me. Christine O'Donnell DID NOT LIE!!! I was with her myself when she visited Oxford (http://www.ox.ac.uk/) and fully participated in the online tour! Take that lamestream media! ~ the Right Reverend Dr. Thurgood Goodlove, the Savedest man in the history of the Republican party

She pretty much embodies the entire Tea Party. Common America, wake up!
