Senator Rand Paul has undergone a brutal week of recriminations and backtracking talking points as allegations of plagiarism first surfaced on Rachel Maddow's show. Soon after he was dumped by the crazy Moonie Times.
From the Times:
The newspaper and the senator mutually agreed to end his weekly column, which has appeared each Friday since the summer. “We expect our columnists to submit original work and to properly attribute material, and we appreciate that the senator and his staff have taken responsibility for an oversight in one column,” Times Editor John Solomon said.“We also appreciate the original insights he has shared with our readers over the last few months and look forward to future contributions from Sen. Paul and any other members of Congress who take the time to help educate our readers,” Mr. Solomon said.
Even the Washington Times expects non-plagiarized work! Who would have thunk it? Anyway, sometimes the jokes just write themselves.
Following allegations of plagiarism that caused a shake-up in the senator's office, Rand Paul's (R-KY) opinion column has found a new home at Breitbart News."Paul is pleased to partner with Breitbart News and looks forward to the new, wider audience for his columns," Paul advisor Doug Stafford told Breitbart in Wednesday's announcement.
