Dennis Mansfield, spokesman for 1st District GOP congressional candidate Raul Labrador’s campaign, had this comment on the revelation that half of the position statements posted for at least the past five months on rival Vaughn Ward’s website matched statements on other candidates’ and congressmen’s websites (Ward took the statements down this afternoon): “We’re disappointed that Vaughn Ward’s campaign would plagiarize other websites. He’s a very creative man, and it doesn’t seem to fit his character to do this. I suppose it does make me wonder if his overall candidacy is a cut-and-paste of other people’s philosophies.”
