Why U.S. and German Plagiarism Scandals Have Unfolded So Differently

Posted by Jonathan Bailey on Nov 13, 2013 11:03:00 AM

Earlier this year, we discussed the recent plagiarism scandals in Germany and analyzed why it is significant when a political figure is found to have plagiarized a dissertation or a work from their pre-political career.

appl-orange-comparisonThe country has certainly seen its share of those scandals, which have led to the resignation of an Education Minister, a Defense Minister and a slew of other politicians.

However, today it is a U.S. politician in the plagiarism spotlight, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, and the allegations are very different. Rather than standing accused of plagiarizing his dissertation, Paul is accused of plagiarizing in speeches, op-eds and even a book he wrote.

Rand Paul Addresses Plagiarism Claims: ‘I Gave Credit’

First off this edition, Paige Lavender at The Huffington Post reports that Rand Paul, a Republican Senator from Kentucky, has been accused of plagiarizing during a pair of speeches he made over the past few months. The initial allegations surfaced from Rachel Maddow, a liberal television commentator and staunch Paul opponent, accused Paul of lifting four lines from a speech from Wikipedia. In his speech, Paul was discussing the dangers of eugenics and was doing so by referencing the 1997 movie “Gattaca”. However, when describing the plot, Paul used several passages from Wikipedia verbatim or near-verbatim without attribution. Since then, Buzzfeed reporter Andrew Kaczynski has found another possible instance of Wikipedia-related plagiarism, a June speech that referenced the movie “Stand and Deliver”. There, according to Kaczynski, Paul repeated nearly three paragraphs from the Wikipedia entry on the movie but failed to attribute the site. In an interview with Fusion, Paul was asked if he had plagiarized and he responded, saying, “I gave credit to the people who wrote the movie… Nothing I said was not given attribution to where it came from.” No mention, however, was made of Wikipedia.
