From POLITICAL HOTSHEET at CBS NEWS:
The office of Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts is blaming a technical error for the fact that comments attributed to Brown posted to his campaign website were lifted verbatim from former Sen. Elizabeth Dole.
“I was raised to believe that there are no limits to individual achievement and no excuses to justify indifference,” Brown was quoted as saying on his site in comments that were removed earlier this week. “From an early age, I was taught that success is measured not in material accumulations, but in service to others. I was encouraged to join causes larger than myself, to pursue positive change through a sense of mission, and to stand up for what I believe.”
Dole, the former North Carolina Republican senator, used those exact words in kicking off her campaign in 2002.
I wonder if Bob Dole knows about this. This is on top of Nekkid

From The Los Angeles Times:
The Republican National Committee is investigating the expenditure of nearly $2,000 in party funds at a racy West Hollywood nightclub, a party spokesman said Monday.
RNC spokesman Doug Heye acknowledged that the party had reimbursed Erik Brown, president of a Southern California firm that has provided direct mail services to political campaigns, for a Jan. 31 outing at Voyeur West Hollywood.
The club, inspired by the film “Eyes Wide Shut,” is intended to be “risque and provocative” and “a combination of intimidation and sexuality,” one of its partners, David Koral, told The Times in October.
