Slate – Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke claimed earlier this week that he had been appointed as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. A few days later, CNN reported that the controversial sheriff who is fond of appearing on Fox News plagiarized significant portions of his master’s thesis about homeland security—“Making U.S. security and privacy rights compatible.” Overall, Clarke failed to properly attribute sources a whopping 47 times, according to the CNN.
