George Papadopoulos not only had little or no experience when joining the Trump campaign, the experience that his resume claimed was mostly fictitious. As per the article, Papadopoulos worked for the presidential campaign of Ben Carson, but he failed to impress his supervisors there. His boss on the Carson campaign stated the he, “would not have recommended his former employee if he had been asked because he found him unimpressive."
Papadopoulos exaggerated his experience at the Hudson Institute, a conservative think tank.
1.While he claimed to have served for several years as a fellow at the Hudson Institute, officials there said he had been an unpaid intern and a researcher under contract to several fellows who were writing a book.
Papadopoulos was not a member of the Model U.N. as he claimed previously.
2.Although he claimed to be “U.S. Representative at the 2012 Geneva International Model United Nations,” officials at that organization said they had no record of him.
Papadopoulos did not give the 'keynote address' at a leading American-Greek Organization while a student.
3.Papadopoulos said he had delivered the “keynote address” at a leading American-Greek organization in 2008 — while a student at DePaul University. But records from the gathering indicate he merely participated in a youth panel with other participants. The keynote was delivered by 1988 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis.
The Trump Campaign did not fire Papadopoulos after his exaggerated resume became public.
4.Though Papadopoulos’s exaggerated résumé issues quickly became public, he remained a part of the Trump advisory panel and soon began urging campaign aides to let him set up a meeting between Trump and Russian officials.
