Plagiarism issue at Illinois newspaper

The Better Government Association ["BGA"] brought up possible issues of plagiarism at the Desplaines Valley News  in a post titled

Plagiarism Suspected At Newspaper Owned By Legislator

The relevant state legislator is Steve Landek and the article notes the possible involvement of Mark Hornung, who had a plagiarism issue at the Chicago Sun-Times, twenty years earlier.

Of the 1995 incident, wikipedia notes:  --On March 24, 1995, the Sun-Times published an editorial by Mark Hornung, then the Sun-Times' editorial page editor, that plagiarized a Washington Post editorial that had appeared in that paper the day before  --

Copying from the Washington Post is alleged in the 2015 incident.
