Shaw’s campaign manager Dustin Daniel told Willamette Week on Tuesday that in an “unfortunate mistake,” Shaw’s statement in the general election voters’ pamphlet incorrectly stated she earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota. Daniel told the newspaper that Shaw’s statement in the primary election voters’ pamphlet correctly stated she attended the University of Minnesota. Her candidate filing for the general election says she completed three years of college.

Trey Rosser, executive director of the Evergreen Oregon PAC, pointed out that Shaw’s LinkedIn resume also lists a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota. Rosser wrote in the complaint to Secretary of State Bev Clarno, “By knowingly submitting a voters’ pamphlet statement with false information, Lynnette Shaw is clearly in violation of state law. As you know, violations of ORS 260.715 are a Class C Felony.”

Two years ago, a Bend House candidate’s false statement that she received a college degree also became an issue and ultimately caused Amanda La Bell to quit the race.

House District 24, which covers portions of Yamhill and Washington counties, is currently held by Republican Rep. Ron Noble, who is running for re-election. It is among the most hotly contested Oregon legislative races in the state and as of the end of September, it was the 12th most expensive race, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.

Shaw could not immediately be reached for comment.
