Another GOP plagiarist outed?
Friday, March 24, 2006 - reddit
It seems ironic that with Ben Domenech resigning
as a blogger for the Washing Post amid allegations of plagiarism, that a potential GOP challenger to Hillary Clinton's Senate seat has on fallen under the same suspicion.
Okay not really, maybe lying has just become so customary within the Republican party that it's almost second nature. If you play games with the truth, you will
get nailed for it. A wire story
is out saying that a speech on Kathleen McFarland's resume on the "Star Wars" Strategic Defense Initiative, claimed to be written by herself, was in fact written by other people.
In all fairness, she is not the first, and certainly not the last person to fudge their resume. But this was outed by the NY Times, and with the Posts recent issues with Domenech, it can't help but paint a picture of Republicans as people willing to lie and steal to get what they want. Deserved or not, that's a reputation the GOP cannot afford to have with the midterm elections coming up.
