Sen. Rand Paul just plagiarized the wikipedia article on Gattaca in a speech
Did Rand Paul plagiarize his speech from Wikipedia? It sure seems that way, as Rachel Maddow pointed out on Monday.
In a speech given in support of Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, Paul referenced the 90s science fiction movie Gattaca. The Kentucky senator used the plot of Gattaca--a dystopian world in which eugenics is widely practiced-- to attack pro-choice advocates. Even more bizarre than his choice of metaphor are the similarities between Paul's speech and the Wikipedia page for Gattaca.
As Maddow points out, Paul said:
"In the movie Gattaca, in the not-too-distant future, eugenics is common and DNA plays a primary role in determining your social class."
