Gay Targeted

Academic reformer and investigative journalist Christopher F. Rufo presents evidence that Harvard President Claudine Gay violated academic norms in writing her dissertation, in some cases going all the way to lifting the work of others and presenting it as her own. Red State has the story.

Following unimpressive testimony before Congress, Gay has been under external pressure to resign. These accusations, if substantiated, will increase the internal pressure on her. 

On the other hand, our nation's President Joe Biden is renowned for plagiarizing various speeches. Doing so cost him the presidential nomination earlier in his career. Biden is a noted fabulist.

Honesty standards are low for politicians, most of whom lie fluently and without remorse. For university presidents, not so much. All of which increases the odds she'll be next in line to go, following the president of UPenn.
