For those who don’t remember, Scott Brown was caught plagiarizing from Elizabeth Dole back in October. At the time he brushed it off as an “oversight”.
But there he goes again: his issues page contains text which appears to be lifted from another North Carolinian, a State Rep by the name of Earline Parmon, currently running for State Senate.
Compare Brown’s words:
America is a great country, but we face very serious challenges that we need to solve if we’re going to pass on a better, brighter and stronger nation to our kids and grandkids. The most pressing issue before us is getting the economy moving again. Our national unemployment rate is still unacceptably high. Millions of Americans remain out of work, or are stuck in part-time jobs when they would prefer full-time employment. Middle-class families are hurting as they struggle to make ends meet. They’re worried about their future, and that of their children and grandchildren.
North Carolina is a great State, but we continue to face very serious challenges that need resolution.In order for us to pass on a better, brighter and stronger nation to our children and grandchildren, it is critical that we get the economy moving again. Our national unemployment rate is still unacceptably high and the unemployment rate in North Carolina remains high. Middle-class families struggle to make ends meet and most cannot afford health insurance. Issues like health care, education, jobs and women’s rights go hand in hand with developing a sustainable economy; not only for North Carolina but for communities throughout this nation.
All Brown really left out was the policy specifics. Once is an oversight, twice is…?
