Plagiarized Res Publica article posted on the It Makes Sense Blog, January 17, 2011

One of our writers, who uses the nom de plume “Le Corbeaunoir,” worked very, very hard and produced a fine article about Amy Busefink and the ACORN voter registration fraud prosecutions in Nevada. Titled “Project Vote’s Amy Busefink: A Progressive From the Neighborhood Gets Busted,” it was posted on the Res Publica Blog at 12:32 AM on January 17, 2011 and has been well-received on the internet. At some point later that day, as shown by the screen grab posted above, “Professor1” at the It Makes Sense Blog posted a large — 16 paragraphs worth — verbatim portion of that post listing himself as its author under the slightly rearranged title “Busted: Project Vote’s Amy Busefink: A Progressive From the Neighborhood.” Although Professor1 uses the exact text right down to the hyperlinks and footnotes written by Le Corbeaunoir, and one of the photographs Le Corbeaunoir obtained for the Res Publica article, Professor1 gives no attribution to Le Corbeaunoir or the Res Publica Blog, not even a linkback to the authentic article.

Good news.  RES PUBLICA now has its own Facebook page.

To expand our capability to provide detailed information and commentary about politics in Pinellas County, Tampa Bay, and Florida of the type that does not normally appear in the local media or on other blogs, and to contribute to the great debate about where our country is headed, we have joined the Facebook social networking website.  Our Facebook page will be a parallel publication featuring links to timely articles, videos, photographs and other items of interest appearing in RES PUBLICA and in a variety of other publications in a format that permits readers to post their own comments and interact with our editors and with one another.  Our goal is to be a valuable resource for those who are working against statism and the liberal agenda and for the return to constitutional democracy.

Promote Conservatism as we head toward the all-important 2010 and 2012 elections.  Join RES PUBLICA on Facebook by clicking here and hitting the “Like” button.

And please tell all of your Facebook friends about us.
