Brian Sandoval leads Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid by 10 percentage points in a hypothetical […]

Our celebrity President held a couple of high-dollar fundraisers on the left coast this week – and the mainstream media are not happy that they weren’t granted access whatsoever to either of them (via): SAN FRANCISCO — President Barack Obama went to the West Coast to meet donors from two top Democratic super PACs, but […]

 

Sen. Walsh: PTSD “may have been a factor” in master’s thesis plagiarism

Posted by: ST on July 24, 2014 at 9:31 am » 3 Comments

Phineas blogged about this developing scandal yesterday involving the ‘alleged’ master’s thesis plagiarism of Montana Senator John Walsh (D), but the Senator’s biggest issue going forward may not be in the allegations themselves but in his controversial attempts at excusing them away: Sen.
