Just a day after the Washington Times dropped Sen. Rand Paul as a columnist after it emerged that he’d plagiarized parts of at least one his weekly installments, Breitbart.com announced Paul’s column would be moving there. In its announcement, the site did not mention Paul’s recent troubles with plagiarism in both his speeches and written works, though it did cover that news before Paul joined its writing staff. “We are pleased to add Senator Paul to our lineup of fearless, original thought leaders,” Breitbart CEO Larry Solov said in the announcement. The senator has promised to footnote his work from now on.
