Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson's campaign admitted today that the fabricated a story about applying to and being accepted at West Point.
Carson's campaign made the admission in response to an inquiry from Politico. West Point has no record of Carson applying for admission, Politico said. In Carson's book "Gifted Hands," he says he got a "full scholarship" to the military academy.
W. Point tried to recruit Carson, said he could go for free. He interpreted as "full scholarship offer." That's all. https://t.co/wtnmty6Fmj— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) November 6, 2015
