Plagiarism issue appears in Missouri politics

The AP reported on 16 July: The Columbia Daily Tribune reported Tuesday [July 15] that two unnamed sources, who also worked for Webster and spoke to the newspaper on the condition of anonymity, blamed [Democratic attorney general candidate Chris] Koster for the [plagiarism] controversy over the book passages [from "Reinventing Government: How the Entrepreneurial Spirit is Transforming the Public Sector."]

The "Webster" is former Missouri Attorney General Bill Webster. The article also notes: Webster lost in the 1992 general election and was later sentenced to federal prison for the political use of state resources.

Webster, a large and imposing man, spoke at the UofChicago Law School during the time of LBE's attendance.
