Goeglein Busted For Plagiarism

He's a Hoosier native and President George W. Bush's top liaison to faith-based groups, but today he's asking for forgiveness for his own sins. It seems a column Timothy Goeglein penned for the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel this week was lifted from a 1998 Dartmouth Review essay by Jeffrey Hart. "'It is true,' Tim Goeglein wrote to The Journal Gazette in an email. 'I am entirely at fault. It was wrong of me. There are no excuses.' "He said he wrote to the author of the essay, Jeffrey Hart 'to apologize, and do so categorically and without exception.' Fort Wayne Observed has more.

UPDATE: It turns out Goeglein is a serial plagiarist. He resigned his position in the Bush White House.

Not surprising! Everyone connected with Bush is a sleeze and not smart enough to write their own columns.

The key to this hypocrisy is the fact that Goeglein is the top White House aide who is President Bush's chief liaison to religious groups.

Your right SuzyQ, he'll be in line to write for OBama. OBama, a guy who never heard a good speech that he couldn't call his own

Birds of a feather flock together..
This is why it is time to clean out the rookery where these vile
creatures abide.
I don't give a damn who is on the Democratic ticket for President - I
am not voting Republican!
And, folks - America needs that vote. I don't care if it is cold and rainy outside - get your behind
out and vote.
We The People cannot let those bastards steal this election too.
