No Titles of Nobility
Jim McDermott, congressman and doctor, has added another title: knight.
McDermott, D-Wash., was knighted by the king of Lesotho during an Aug. 22 ceremony at the Royal Palace in Maseru, his office said Friday.
“His Majesty Letsie III, by the Grace of God, Sovereign of the Kingdom of Lesotho, is pleased by these presents to appoint Jim McDermott Knight Commander of The Most Dignified Order of Moshoeshoe,” the official citation reads.
According to Lesotho officials, Most Dignified Order of Moshoeshoe recognizes distinguished leadership, particularly in the political sphere.
Noted. I guess he is renouncing his Congressional seat in order to become a Knight of Lesotho. He did swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, not Lesotho.
