Scott Brown Accused of Plagiarism

Elizabeth Warren may just want to sit back and watch Scott Brown self-destruct: a Democratic group in Massachusetts has accused the Massachusetts senator of plagiarism, pointing to some remarks he appears to have lifted verbatim from former senator Elizabeth Dole’s website. Brown’s message to students, posted on his website, used the exact language that Dole used in her 2002 campaign kickoff. Brown’s staff has acknowledged that the words were Dole’s and said the plagiarism was the result of a “staff-level oversight.” According to his spokesman, Brown’s staff used Dole’s website as a model and transferred the speech inadvertently.
