Harvard Law Classmate of Obama Releases Transcript as Part of Run for Missouri Governor

Almost three months ago, I published a piece in which I described Bill Randles as the “Herman Cain” of Missouri’s Republican Race for Governor in 2012.  Today, despite knowing how some might want to second guess my previous effort, I compare the Kansas Citian to another politician, Barack Obama.

Bill Randles

Randles, a Kansas City lawyer-turned conservative Republican candidate for governor who hopes to unseat Democrat Jay Nixon in November, shares more in common with the man currently occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue than many might be aware.  Most importantly, he holds the distinction of having attended Harvard Law School at roughly the same time as the current commander-in-chief — that is, Randles was one year ahead of the upstart Obama.

Unlike Obama, however, Randles has not sealed all records related to his life.  Quite to the contrary, he’s published a photo of his complete Harvard Law transcript (below) on his campaign’s Facebook page.

EDITOR’S NOTE:  I direct individuals seeking information about Randles’ GOP primary opponent to read the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the newspaper with a penchant for ignoring Randles, the candidate who’s been in the race for a full year, and devoting its attention to Dave Spence, the St. Louis-area businessman — backed by the GOP establishment, I might add — who only recently entered the race — and to lackluster early reviews from political insiders.

UPDATE 1/11/12 at 2:19 p.m. Central:  Jake Wagman at the Post-Dispatch finally wrote an article about Randles that consists of more than an afterthought-style mention at the end of a piece about another candidate.  Of course, the headline of the latest article begins with Randles’ opponent’s last name.  For details, see Spence’s rival releases school transcripts, including Harvard report card.

  1. Same here, Valerie. I will vote for him as well. I was impressed with his message. We need someone who is honest and cares about Missouri.

  2. What has impressed me about Bill Randles is that he doesn’t just identify problems, heck anyone can do that, but also identifies the true source of those problems AND articulates well thought through solutions to those problems. I’ll be supporting him all the way.

  3. Republicans got Obama’s short form birth certificate, his long form and all his tax records. And it’s still not enough. They only continue to invade his privacy because they are convinced there is dirt there. He’s black. So he must be bad.
