Republican Dave Spence, the St. Louis businessman now running for governor of Missouri, appeared to have a rather conventional resume.
This was not true. In fact, as the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported, Spence was enrolled in a different school at Mizzou and in 1980 earned a bachelor of science degree in home economics.
Spence, who has since proven his business acumen running several packaging corporations, admits that as a youngster he wasn’t much of a scholar. “I was not the greatest student in the world,” Spence said. “I’ll make fun of myself: I was a 60-watt bulb in a 100-watt society.”
Yea, but I bet he can iron tablecloths like a dream.
