Scott avoided answering questions about exactly how much of the article he wrote, but insists that a research assistant selected the plagiarized content.
TPJ: So besides a plagiarist, Scott McInnis is also a coward by throwing his research assistant under the bus for the plagiarism but the assistant isn't going quietly. "A researcher whom Colorado Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis blamed for plagiarism allegations said Wednesday he won't sign a letter from the campaign owning up to what happened because he claims McInnis is lying." TPJ: If we can't trust this guy to write his own speeches, how can we trust him to tells us the truth on more important matters that come up in Congress? Integrity is a big deal for me and especially in these times of so many crooked politicians. And apparently this might not be the only case of plagiarism from McInnis, which is creating talk that he'll drop out:
Former Congressman Tom Tancredo told 9News's Adam Schrager on Thursday that he has heard Scott McInnis will drop out of the Governor's race. Meanwhile, the Denver Post reports that Tancredo, former candidate Josh Penry and CU President Bruce Benson are all being looked at as potential replacement candidates.
TPJ: I hope that if they kick out McInnis that the Republicans pick Tancredo to replace him because he'd be the be the easiest challenger to my candidate, businessman and Mayor of Denver John Hickenlooper. "Hick" knows how to run a business and deal with employment issues. He's a common sense kind of guy and even though he's been mayor of Denver it feels like he's just one of us. As the video below shows. He hasn't lost that touch with the people. Plus, how can you go wrong with a guy who has a greats sense of humor? His knowledge of business helped revitalize downtown Denver with his successful restaurants and bars. His laid back but driven attitude says, "Colorado" all the way. He also got his masters in geology, which fits Colorado and our big mountains even more!! We need Hick to return Colorado to our coveted spot on the map of America. His business sense will help revitalize Colorado as he did downtown Denver. PICK HICK!!
