A candidate for Congress is being accused of plagiarism. Democrat Ann Callis is running for office in Illinois' 13th Congressional District against Congressman Rodney Davis, but Republicans say she's not being quite honest when it comes to the issues. In fact, they say much of the text on the "Issues" page on her website is identical to that of an Iowa politician.
Republicans are accusing Callis' team of swiping the information and pasting it onto their own site. Callis denies that claim and says they had their site up well before the Iowa politician. The Illinois Republican Party disagrees with that. Chairman Jack Dorgan said the Iowa website was created at least two weeks before Callis's was.
