Today, Rep. Jim Gibbons (R-NV) defended his plagiarized speech in an editorial written to a Nevada Newspaper where he says he was spun out of context by the Democratic Party. He must have forgotten that people were able to read a detailed account of the speech in the Elko Daily Free Press. He also must have forgotten that what he said was completely detailed in the original speech delivered in 2003 by the Alabama auditor from which Gibbons plagiarized 15 of 21 paragraphs nearly word for word. He left that part out of his letter. Its amazing that, once again, Jim Gibbons claims he was taken out of context, jut like he did when he called people who questioned George Bushs corporate funded Inauguration events communists. Jim Gibbons words speak for themselves, and what they have to say isnt pretty.
