Sen. Rand Paul, who is being talked about as a 2016 presidential candidate, has been accused of including passages from other writers and from Wikipedia in his speeches, a book and an op-ed.
Sounds like bad staff work. And dumb staff work. In the old days, there was probably a lot of, shall we say, borrowing that went undetected. Today, there is a lot of technology available to catch it. If you cut and paste something thats on the web, its not hard to be found out.
I am less concerned by the sloppiness of Senator Pauls office than I am with the senators reaction.
He said in an interview with ABC: I think Im being unfairly targeted by a bunch of hacks and haters.
Not the right response. What he should have just said is that I was sloppy and Ill do better, instead of lashing out about hacks and haters at the end of a very long answer to a question from George Stephanopoulos.
