Sen. Biden's Problems With Plagiarism

September 26, 1987

Biden's cavalier attitude towards plagiarism is startling and appalling. His claim that plagiarism is not a character issue is wrong and only serves to compound his original mistake.

The American Heritage Dictionary defines plagiarize thusly: "To steal and use (the ideas or writings of another) as one's own." While even a first-year law student should know better, continued such behavior from a senator is reprehensible and casts serious doubts on Biden's personal integrity.
