Sen. Rand Paul has a plagiarism problem. After allegations that he lifted enough text to fill three pages of his recent book and copied text for an article The Washington Times from a week old article in The Week, Sen. Paul went on the defensive:
We write something every week for The Washington Times, and I literally am riding around in a car in between things trying to figure out if I can approve it. . . . We need to get stuff earlier, but it’s hard, we probably take on more than we should be doing.
Being a politician is hard? Citing sources is hard? Buying food when your SNAP benefits have been cut is hard?
Oh wait, one of these things is actually hard.
Also on today’s #TWiBRadio, #TeamBlackness discussed the new mayor-elect of New York City, anti-rape underpants,
and apparently, it’s lethal to seek help after a car accident . . . if you’re a person of color.
And this morning on #amTWiB, The Morning Crew weighed in on Tuesday’s elections, bullying forces a biracial girl to change her name, and I introduce some “Good Morning” cheer.
