Here, then, is a brief update. Note that the aide, Tim Goeglein, worked for President Bush as "a liaison to social and religious conservatives."
Tim Goeglein, special assistant to President Bush, resigned this evening after being caught — and then admitting to — plagiarizing articles that he wrote for a local paper. After blogger Nancy Nall revealed that Goeglein had plagiarized a recent Fort Wayne News-Sentinel column, an investigation by the paper found 20 of his 38 columns had parts that were copied. Goeglein had worked for Bush since 2001 as a liaison to social and religious conservatives and is a familiar figure to many evangelical Christian leaders.
Our question: How's that religious conservatism working out for you, Tim Goeglein?
UPDATE: The Fort Wayne News-Sentinel has discovered seven more instances of Tim Goeglein's plagiarism in its pages.
Asked about the plagiarism on Sunday, Goeglein was remorseful. He explained it this way: "Pride. Vanity. It's all my fault. It's inexcusable. What I did is wrong. I categorically apologize."
