In 1999, when Carl Stokes was running for mayor, his campaign literature said that he graduated from Loyola College (now Loyola University Maryland). One problem: He didn't. "This is an error," Stokes acknowledged in July 1999. "I attended Loyola College from 1968 to 1970. I did not graduate." He did not win the election, either, finishing a distant second to then-City Councilman Martin O'Malley.
