Montana School Official Appears to Have Plagiarized in Another Letter to the Editor

By: Eddie Gregg | Billings Gazette

A longtime Yellowstone County official accused of plagiarizing an anti-Obama editorial in a letter to the editor he submitted to The Billings Gazette also may have plagiarized a petition to impeach the president in another letter to the editor published in June.

On Sunday, after being contacted by The Gazette, conservative writer Mychal Massie accused Max Lenington, the Yellowstone County assessor, treasurer and superintendent of schools, of plagiarizing the syndicated editorial, “Why I Do Not Like the Obamas,” and publishing it as a letter to the editor titled “Why I hate Barack and Michelle Obama.”
