Lied On Resume

U.S. News & World Report, April 24, 1995, p. 20

Lon Grammer claimed some impressive credentials when he transferred to Yale from Cuesta Community College in San Luis Obispo, Calif., two years ago, including a 3.9 grade point average. He did well at Yale, too, playing rugby while earning a B average. But a bare month before he was to graduate with a degree in political science, Yale expelled the 25-year-old and charged him with taking $61,475 under false pretenses. School officials say he lied about his GPA and forged recommendations from nonexistent teachers. He will be arraigned on larceny charges next week.

In a TV interview, he pleaded that his actions were no worse than what happens every day when people lie on resumes.
