President Trump taps inexperienced woman who planned his son's wedding to
run housing programs
Jun 16, 2017 - Aris Folley | AOL.com
President Donald Trump <http://www.wow.com/channel/donald-trump> appointed
a family loyalist, who once coordinated his son Eric Trump's wedding, to
head up the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
<http://www.wow.com/channel/us-department-of-housing>'s New York branch.
Lynne Patton has long been a staunch supporter and ally of Trump. Having
worked with the family since 2009
Patton has arranged tournaments at Trump golf courses, worked as liaison to
the family prior to his 2016 presidential victory and arranged his one of
his son's biggest days.

And, as of Wednesday, Patton will be in charge of distributing billions of
taxpayer dollars across Region II of the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development, which includes New York and New Jersey
Upon her newfound assignment, the NY Daily News
raised questions about Patton's "inexperience" and close ties with the
Trump family. Patton's resume on her LinkedIn
profile states she obtained a Juris Doctorate
<http://www.wow.com/channel/juris-doctor> degree from Quinnipiac University
School of Law
Connecticut in 2000.
According to the outlet, the school's registrar spokesman, Jim Benson
<http://www.wow.com/channel/jim-benson>, said Patton didn't graduate with
the degree and only attended the institution for two semesters.
Patton claims she never lied about the degree in response to a post about
her misleading profile via Twitter Friday morning because she clarified
"N/A" next to the degree.

Patton also listed Yale University
<http://www.wow.com/channel/yale-university> on her profile but did not
specify the years she attended the institution, nor her field of study as
she had done with Quinnipiac.
Trump's pick for the new head of the largest HUD regional office in the
country is slated to start her post in July.
