Admits plagiarism

6 Nov, 2013

Buzzfeed uncovers a new passage in Paul’s book Government Bullies that is nearly identical to an article in Forbes magazine. The senator, who is buffeted by a steady stream of plagiarism allegations, which he has denied in the past, admits mistakes crediting sources and tells reporters:
