Iranian Government Minister Becomes Laughing Stock Following Forgery Revelations

 

The Iranian government has been shaken by a scandal with the Interior Minister, Ali Kordan admitting that a degree he claimed he has earned in Oxford University was a forgery.

The announcement has been greeted with calls from conservatives and moderates for the Ministers immediate dismissal, leaving President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad facing a vote of confidence for his whole cabinet.

The scandal has converted Ali Kordan into a national laughing stock with a joke resignation letter circulating full of misprints and crossings-out like the forged doctorate he claimed was from Oxford.

  Wow  
 
I can't think of anything more profoundly embarrassing, I mean, on a global scale. Kind of like going on international TV with your zipper down... WOW
I have done some embarrassing s**t in my life, but I don't feel so bad about them anymore!
Thanks Mr. Kordan, if that is your real name!
