Jeff Coryell catches the Republican candidate for OH07 plagiarizing his labor day pandering message. Jeff notes that Austria is really not that into labor or workers:

State Sen. Steve Austria (R-Beavercreek) has touted his a 97% pro-business voting record and his heavily PAC-funded congressional campaign gets big support from business and nothing from labor. Overall he has a pretty poor voting record as far as labor is concerned, having voted against raising the minimum wage, against fair treatment for workers injured on the job, and for making it harder for state correctional workers to organize.

It’s pandering during a holiday that encompasses many things Steve Austria probably doesn’t support. You know. Labor organizing, minimum wage, sick days, fair treatment of injured workers. It’s an attempt by a patsy Republican who seeks to grab a seat during GOP musical chairs in a gerrymandered district.

Dave Staley at tries to carry the GOP water (he’s a good waterboy) by claiming 1. That Joe Biden once didn’t cite a source in a speech (not noting, however, that he did many times before in similar speeches) and 2. That this is not technically illegal.

Nice try, Dave. Next time, finish pasting the rest of the Wikipedia entry, my friend:

Though Biden had previously cited Kinnock as the source for the formulation many times before, he made no reference to the original source at the August 23 debate in question.

The facts here are that the GOP candidate not only got lazy, but tried to persuade voters that he gives a damn about workers on their day. Sharen Neuhardt gives a damn and she doesn’t need plagiarized columns to prove it. The Xenia Gazette should issue a correction or update noting the original source of the content.

  • You guys really want to go with plagiarism this year?


    Do some more research on Biden’s problems (it ain’t just Kinnock) before you answer.

  • I answered your Kinnock. Wanna try another? I can’t read your mind in countering your BS, you know. LOL.

    No, I’m not making plagiarism a national theme. I will call out a lazy GOP congressional for it, though. You?

  • Oh, you must mean the law school thing. Heh. You hear Obama smoked pot in college? Damn! He’s toast!

    Just admit Austria fucked up instead of using these tired distraction tactics. It’s about all you guys got this year is distraction.

  • I might also add that if you compare the signal to noise ratio just after Biden was announced to Palin there really is no comparison. I’ll rest.
