Texas A&M's No. 3 administrator has been fired as his claim of past service with the U.S. Navy Seals has been disproved. Turns out, not only was he a phony-frog, he doesn't have a doctorate or even a master's degree, and was making a lofty $300K salary.

It doesn't pay to be a loser.

COLLEGE STATION — Texas A&M's No. 3 administrator presented himself as a warrior-scholar: a former Navy SEAL with a doctorate from Tufts University.

But records obtained by The Bryan-College Station Eagle indicate that Alexander Kemos never was part of the elite fighting force, and Texas A&M officials confirmed Friday that he doesn't have a doctorate or even a master's degree, which was a posted requirement for the $300,000-a-year position as the top adviser to Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin.

I bet the SEAL claim was the step too far... He might've still been earning $300K if it weren't for that.

I hope he wasn't in direct contact with the corps of cadets. I'm sure they don't need that asshole filling their brains with bullshit.

When I was on a university president search committee back in the day. We vetted a lot of information. Work history and references, phone interviews, airport interviews and on campus interviews etc. I have to admit we never checked the validity of there undergrad or master's degree (we preferred a doctorate but didn't require it). It was just such a basic requirement that we never thought to check, I sure wouldn't make that mistake again.

Why organizations like Universities never follow up on said credentials presented in an resume and interview are beyond me.

$300,000 annualy ? Never served in the Navy? Didn't have a doctorate degree ?


I must be doing something wrong. }:-)

Considering how difficult it is to get a clearance, I am amazed that with the speed of the internet a University still fails to properly vet their employees. Yikes

Well done, all I could come up with was one for assclown (and if I had found this one I probably wouldn't have posted it anyway :) )
