University of Colorado officials investigating embattled professor Ward Churchill received documents this week purporting to show that he plagiarized another professor’s work. Officials at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia sent CU an internal 1997 report detailing allegations about an article Churchill wrote.
“The article . . . is, in the opinion of our legal counsel, plagiarism,” Dalhousie spokesman Charles Crosby said in summarizing the report’s findings.
Churchill did not return calls to his home or office Thursday seeking comment.
Dalhousie began an investigation after professor Fay G. Cohen complained that Churchill used her research and writing in an essay without her permission and without giving her credit. Although the investigation substantiated her allegations, Cohen didn’t pursue the matter because she felt threatened by Churchill, Crosby said.
Crosby said Cohen told Dalhousie officials in 1997 that Churchill had called her in the middle of the night and said, “I’ll get you for this.”
So, let’s see. He maligns innocents who died on 9/11. He seems to hate his own country. He apparently lies about being a Native American in order to get his position at CU. He appears to have stolen someone’s artwork as his own. And now he’s being credibly accused of plagiarism.
And this clown has tenure? He’s teaching young, impressionable people from a position of authority?
What a waste of skin this guy is…
If CU doesn’t dismiss this walking, talking poster-boy for birth control, they can kiss what little credibility and status they still have goodbye…
