White House Middleman Admits To Plagiarism Of Fort Wayne Newspaper

Last updated on Saturday, March 1, 2008

(WASHINGTON) - A White House official who serves as President Bush’s middleman with conservatives and Christian groups has resigned after admitting to plagiarism.

Twenty columns he wrote for an Indiana newspaper were determined to have material copied from other sources without attribution.

Timothy Goeglein has worked for Bush since 2001. He acknowledged that he lifted material from a Dartmouth College publication and presented it as his own work in a column about education for the News-Sentinel in Fort Wayne.

The White House said Goeglein has apologized for not upholding the standards expected by the President. A White House statement says the President was disappointed to learn of the matter and was saddened for Goeglein and his family.
