Without trying to be overtly political, I thought I'd mention some "public service" performed by Harry Lewis. Apparently, Darcy Burner, a Harvard alum running for Congress, said in a debate, "I loved economics so much that I got a degree in it from Harvard." The Republican opponents are questioning her truthfulness, since her actual degree is in computer science. Back in the day (as I well know, as the requirements were the same as when I was an undergrad) for the computer science major you were supposed to take several classes in a related field of your choice. Mine was math. Economics was a popular choice, and was apparently Darcy's. This is (by Harvard policy) not noted on the transcript. There is no sign that she has ever attempted to mislead people about her degree; her resume says she has a computer science degree with a specialization in economics, which would be a completely accurate description in my opinion. You can search online for more info.
Harry Lewis publicly backed Darcy Burner's statement, and in fact is now featured in an ad explaining Darcy's academic qualifications. You can read the Crimson article here, and see Harry set the record straight here at Youtube, or here, and probably many other places. Thank you, Harry! No matter what party you favor, certainly everyone is entitled to the facts without the spin, and that is what Harry has provided.
Harry is naturally polite and reserved in his statements, but I'll be more clearly biased: any district should be thrilled to have a Congressperson with a computer science degree, and especially one with a degree from Harvard!
