DescriptionSouth Carolina congressional candidate Joe Cunningham refers to himself as an “ocean engineer” in one of his television ads. The only problem? He isn’t.

A complaint filed against the Democratic nominee for the Palmetto State’s first congressional district (map) claims he is lying about his title – which would be illegal. The complaint – submitted by a Lowcountry engineer to the S.C. Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (SCLLR) – was first reported last week by The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier.

“I’m proud to have a degree in ocean engineering and even more proud of the work I did as an ocean engineer for several years,” Cunningham told the paper by way of response.
