John Walsh to Exit Montana Senate Race
« on: August 07, 2014, 04:59:43 PM »
Montana Sen. John Walsh announced Thursday he is ending his campaign following a report that much of his U.S. Army War College research paper was taken from other sources without proper attribution, NBC News has confirmed.

Montana’s Billings Gazette first reported that Walsh emailed supporters saying he is ending his campaign because the plagiarism controversy “has become a distraction from the debate you expect and deserve.”

Last month the New York Times reported Walsh had copied large portions of the paper he wrote in 2007 without any attribution to the originial sources where he found the information. His campaign has struggled to explain the apparent plagiarism since the story broke.

Walsh was appointed to his Senate seat following the departure of Sen. Max Baucus earlier this year. He faced an uphill campaign against Republican challenger Steve Daines even before the Times story broke.

The dems have this type of discipline, when they have a problem. He gets out.

Whereas the GOP has clowns like Todd Akin who insist and stay in, only to hand over a seat.

Agreed.

It's a fine example of hive mind vs. individualists.
