When I went to college, one of the candidates for class president turned out to have copied his platform from a candidate a few years earlier. These things were mostly boilerplate (“I’ll improve the career fair, have more social events and do a better job in communicating with the university administration.”) so he probably figured no one would notice.
But the best part is that his apology copied lines from Clinton’s famous Lewinsky apology!
I think the line was something like
” [what I did]… was not appropriate. In fact, it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgment and a personal failure on my part for which I am solely and completely responsible.”
