Update 4/13 – I spoke with Dan Hughes on the phone who assured me he had the permission of his local Catholic Bishop to cut and paste the email and re-send it. Fair enough. Feinstein certainly would not be truthful about this or even care.
On the heels of the most insane polling data from Richard Ramirez showing that even a penniless candidate can manufacture 15% support – we have a campaign email from Dan Hughes, A warrior with Bold Solutions for California.
Look at his website – he will tell you so. Dan Hughes who looks about 22 years old has bold solutions for California. He even has the endorsement of the information minister – former Assembly Politician Chuck DeVore who skipped out on California. (more on skipping out of California later)
Your intrepid blogger would like to extend a helping hand to Mr. Hughes.
Plagiarism is a sin. I’d like to suggest that Mr. Hughes attend confession before heading out to the San Diego religious freedom rally.
Mr. Hughes sent out a campaign email announcing his attendance at the March 23rd Religious Freedom Rally in San Diego while plagiarizing the content of a March 14th news release from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
You can read Mr. Hughes Bold, new email from today as well if you like.
If you wasted 15 minutes of your life that you will never get back you will realize that Mr. Hughes, bold new solutions for California involve using Microsoft Notepad to cut and paste content from one website to your own without attribution. That is called plagiarism.
I, too believe in Religious freedom – including redemption – unfortunately for Mr. Hughes, tomorrow is not the Day of Atonement. Therefore, I’d like to refer Mr. Hughes to the local diocese for confession before heading out to the rally so he can be congruent.
Now that’s a bold new solution for California.
Hat Tip – Chris Emami and the OC political blog for being the first to point this out.
