A few days ago, it was revealed that conservative hack Monica Crowley and Trump's designee for senior director of strategic communications for the National Security Council had extensively plagiarized in some of her books.

I didn't consider it a big deal, because his cabinet is shaping up to be a complete cluster F%$#, and the wingnut welfare system ignores such things.

But today, I read that Crowley heavily plagiarized her Ph.D. dissertation:
Conservative commentator Monica Crowley, who is slated to serve in a top national security communications role in Donald Trump's presidential administration, plagiarized thousands of words of her 2000 dissertation for her Columbia University Ph.D., a CNN KFile review has found.

On Monday, Politico reported that it found more than a dozen examples of plagiarism in Crowley's Ph.D. dissertation. CNN's KFile has found nearly 40 lengthy instances of Crowley lifting paragraphs from numerous sources, including several scholarly texts, the Associated Press, and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

The revelation comes on the heels of another CNN KFile investigation, which found more than 50 instances of plagiarism in Crowley's 2012 book, "What The (Bleep) Just Happened." On Tuesday, the book's publisher, HarperCollins, announced that it would stop selling the book until "the author has the opportunity to source and revise the material."
OK, this qualifies as a big deal, particularly since Columbia looks to have cause to rescind her doctorate.

Don't worry though, she'll be fine. She's the Republican equivalent of a "Made Man", so she will be taken care of.
