Add "Plagiarist" to Russell Pearce's Titles

Posted By on Wed, Aug 3, 2011 at 5:00 PM

I'm not sure whether it makes me feel better or worse that Russell Pearce doesn't seem to have that many original ideas, directly lifting quite a bit of his writings online, including large chunks of his website, from other people:

For several years, media outlets in Arizona and at the national level have explored links between Pearce and extremist groups, and in 2006 he was caught circulating a Holocaust-denying article from a West Virginia-based white supremacist group. In issuing an apology, Pearce claimed to not have known about the National Alliance's views.

But a new examination of Pearce's website and public statements reveals that the self-proclaimed architect of Arizona's "papers please" immigration law has regularly borrowed significant portions of text from the writings of hard-line white nationalists, fringe anti-immigrant activists, and others whose views far fall outside the mainstream and presented them as his own.
