I think a politician in my area has falsified his credentials. How do I confirm my suspicions?

A politician in my area says that they received an MBA degree from a top-20 program. However, there are huge gaps in this politician's timeline and bio. I'm trying to find out if the person really did graduate with their MBA.
I know about the National Student Clearinghouse
, but I don't think I qualify for requesting since the person in question is not applying for a job with my organization. Any ideas?
Side note: This seems exactly the type of research that a local newspaper would do BEFORE the election. However, our local paper was been decimated by layoffs and cutbacks. I'm certain that they did not verify this person's bio before the election. I have no reason to think that the local government did either.
