Paul's Book Copied Sections of Think Tank Report

An entire section of Sen. Rand Paul's (R-KY) 2013 book Government Bullies "was copied wholesale from a 2003 case study by the Heritage Foundation," BuzzFeed has learned.

"The copied section, 1,318 words, is by far the most significant instance reported so far of Paul borrowing language from other published material. The new cut-and-paste job follows reports by BuzzFeed, Politico, and MSNBC that Paul had plagiarized speeches either from Wikipedia or news reports."
