Jason Morris

My mother always taught me not to seek benefit from others misery.  Normally I would agree with her. I usually do! Unfortunately I won’t in this case, sorry mom!  I have no admiration or tolerance for people who lie on their resume.  Yesterday we wrote about Donald Trumps advise on resume fraud, today we find a serious offender. Who do you blame, the liar….or the districts failure to conduct a proper background check?
