Dwight Patel, MDGOP Executive Committee Candidate, Is A Pathological Liar

Did you know that Maryland Republican Dwight Patel is running for a Maryland Republican Party leadership position?

Mr. Patel, a failed Montgomery County Council candidate, is an approved candidate for third vice chairman of the Maryland Republican Party.

Maryland Republicans will gather on Dec. 10, 2022, at Live! Casino & Hotel in Hanover, Maryland, for their 2022 Quadrennial Convention.

The 7 Big Lies Dwight Patel Tells

  • Dwight Patel claims he earned a MA in Architecture from the University of Maryland College Park (He did not.)
  • Dwight Patel claims he’s an architect. (He is not.)

MDGOP Executive Committee Candidate Patel lying about his academic credentials 

A now-removed Montgomery County Republican Party bio in Mr. Patel’s name claims he holds academic degrees from George Washington University and the University of Maryland at College Park.

Mr. Patel is lying.

Did Patel graduate from George Washington University?

No, he did not graduate from George Washington University.

A LinkedIn page in Dwight Patel’s name claims he earned a bachelor’s degree in “International Affairs” from George Washington University in 1993.

Dwight Patel is not a graduate of George Washington University or the University of Maryland College Park

In August 2018, A Miner Detail requested copies of Patel’s academic records from the National Student Clearinghouse, a nonprofit agency that verifies student degrees and enrollment.

National Student Clearinghouse verified that Patel was once enrolled at George Washington University from May 1990 to May 1992, though there is no evidence that he graduated with a degree.

Did Former Montgomery County Council Candidate Dwight Patel Graduate From The University of Maryland, College Park? 

There is no evidence proving Dwight Patel earned a graduate degree from the University of Maryland College Park, as he claims.

Patel’s LinkedIn page claims he earned a master’s degree in architecture (MA) from the University of Maryland, College Park.

Once again, National Student Clearinghouse confirmed Mr. Patel enrolled in a College Park “summer program” from June 1991 to August 1993.

Bethesda Architects Never Existed

Patel’s now-removed Montgomery County Republican Party claimed that he owned Bethesda Architects.

Bethesda Architects has no physical address, nor does the alleged business have a website.

Bethesda Architects does not exist. 

Mr. Patel is lying.

Bethesda Architects is not found when searching the Maryland Business Express website.

An Instagram page in Patel’s name says, “Dwight Patel is a Bricks and Mortar (sic) Architect, IT Guru, and New Media Rock Star.”

He is lying.

Patel’s Twitter account bio also claims he’s an architect.

This is a photograph of Dwight Patel's Twitter account bio that misrepresents his professional work history.

And Patel’s LinkedIn page lists Patel as both the “owner” of “Bethesda Architects” and its “Chief Technology Officer.”

“We are a full service (sic) architecture firm specializing in residential and commercial design and remodeling projects. Our projects range in size and scope from 500 square foot room additions to 5,000 square foot private homes. We are the new kid on the block in (sic) Washington Architectural scene. Our Team has over ten years of professional Architectural experience.”

In 2016, Patel told the Washington Post that he was an architect.

Dwight Patel’s Failed 2018 Maryland State Senate Run

In 2018, Patel ran for the Maryland state Senate in District 20 after no other Republican filed for the seat.

He lost in the general election to state Sen. Will Smith (D).

District 20 is a heavily Democratic legislative district.

Patel was one of three Montgomery County Republicans selected to fill legislative vacancies after the 2018 filing deadline expired.

The Montgomery County Republican Party did not run a complete set of candidates in all eight of Montgomery County’s legislative districts.
