Is Ann Coulter ’84 A Plagiarist?

MetaEzra first reported yesterday that people were accusing Ann Coulter—Cornell alum, firebrand conservative, partisan zealot, and wet dream for the male staff of the Cornell American—of plagiarism.

But now that some reports are out that actually document the claims against her, we’re not too certain of the veracity of the claims. The alleged plagiarism seems to me to be more of a prudent rewording. While we'll wait until the verdict is in, here’s one example:

Example: Souter openly proclaimed his support for the 'original intent' in interpreting the Constitution.

Alleged Source: "Souter has declared himself a believer in the strict 'original intent' view of interpreting the Constitution." (Identified by John Barrie/New York Post)

Of course, we should have faith in a fellow Cornell alum to keep things honest—it’s not like we attend a certain nameless school in the Boston region that doesn't know how to play hockey.

But yes, all cheap shots at Harvard aside, Ann Coulter is still an embarrassment to Cornell alumni everywhere.
