It has not been a good week for North Carolina state Sen. James Forrester (R), one of the chief advocates for the state’s proposed constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. After demonstrating his complete lack of knowledge on same-sex marriage during a radio interview on Tuesday, details came out yesterday that he falsified his credentials as a fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine. Today, Qnotes’ Matt Comer reports that he may have also falsified his associations with the Aerospace Medical Association and the Christian Medical and Dental Association. Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt has called for Forrester to resign.
