Mar­ine Corps Re­serve vet­er­an Ed Jany (I) has a “com­pletely fake” bach­el­or’s de­gree from Madis­on Uni­versity, a non-ac­cred­ited school that has no cam­pus and is of­ten called a “dip­loma mill.” Jany at­ten­ded the Uni­versity of Min­nesota for four years but did not re­ceive a de­gree, and said he was told by Mar­ine Corps edu­ca­tion ad­visors that Madis­on Uni­versity was a good op­tion to com­plete his course­work. But one pro­fess­or who has stud­ied dip­loma mills said Jany “must cer­tainly have known it wasn’t le­git­im­ate, be­cause they would have just taken his money and giv­en him the cre­den­tials.” (Tam­pay Bay Times)

HAN­ISEE RE­GRETS CALL TO SYKES, WON’T APO­LO­GIZE. Pinel­las County Demo­crat­ic Party Chair­man Mark Han­isee said he re­greted call­ing loc­al NAACP chapter Pres­id­ent Manuel Sykes (D) and telling him he would be “per­sona non grata” if he stayed in the race. But Han­isee would not apo­lo­gize, say­ing in a state­ment, “if I thought I did something wrong, I would apo­lo­gize.” Han­isee said he re­spects Sykes but that Sykes “needed to know the hard real­ity that awaited him on the path he was tak­ing.” The Demo­crat­ic Con­gres­sion­al Cam­paign Com­mit­tee and former can­did­ate Alex Sink (D) ul­ti­mately en­dorsed Jany.
