Amateur Hour

‘Scott Brown’ plagiarizes from ‘Elizabeth Dole’

A section of the Senate website for Scott Brown, the Republican senator from Massachusetts, was apparently copied word-for-word from a speech given by Elizabeth Dole

The passage, which appeared under a section called "A Message from Scott," used the same language, nearly verbatim, from a speech given by Dole, a former Republican senator from North Carolina, that was also printed in her book "Elizabeth Dole: Speaking From the Heart."

Brown's camp blamed the similarity on a "technical error" because his staff used Dole's website as a template, according to the Boston Globe.
