Senator Scott Brown Caught Plagiarizing

An inspirational autobiographpcal message on Sen. Scott Brown's (R-MA) official website "was lifted verbatim from a 2002 campaign speech by Elizabeth Dole," the Boston Globe reports.

"In a message to students, the senator uses the exact language as remarks delivered by the former North Carolina senator at her campaign kickoff and contained on her own website."

"Brown's staff acknowledged yesterday the words originally were Dole's and said their presence in Brown's message was the result of a technical error."

The sheriff is going to love this.

  2. I was thinking the same thing when I saw this post, Tom.

  3. "Technical error" - Riiiiiight...

    Political-speak for, "Sh*t, caught lying/stealing/cheating again.
