John Walsh (upper photo), a U.S. Senator from Montana, wrote a thesis to earn a master's degree from the U.S. Army War College. Problem is, the material contains unattributed passages taken word-for-word from previously published papers.
A spokesperson for Walsh's campaign said the apparent plagiarism was "unintentional."
One wonders how using word-for-word passages from previously published papers can be unintentional.
The thesis, reviewed by the AP after the New York Times posted its story and graphics online, includes a series of unattributed passages taken from the writings of other scholars.
Look for Democrats to work feverishly to cover this up as an election loss by John Walsh would put control of the U.S. Senate in peril.
Mr. Walsh was appointed to finish the term of Senator Max Baucus who resigned in February to become U.S. ambassador to China. The 'plum’ ambassadorship was a reward to Baucus for his hard work to help pass ObamaCare.
Mr. Walsh will now face Republican Rep. Steve Daines (lower photo) in an effort to keep the Baucus seat which was given to him February.
