WASHINGTON, D.C. – Democratic Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer today said she is “disappointed” after Republican opponent Ashley Hinson was caught plagiarizing “so many others — including me”.

Abby Finkenauer, Iowa’s Dirict 1 Congresswoman up for re-election in November, said today, “I’m deeply disappointed to hear my opponent has plagiarized the work of so many others — including me.” Her opponent, Ashley Hinson, was outed in a New Yorks Times expose for plagiarism of numerous lines from numerous sources, even Finkenauer herself.

According to the New York Times, Hinson “lifted verbatim sentences on her campaign website and in published op-eds.” The Times gave a detailed accounting of her numerous plagiarism episodes. She is a former TV news anchor and is now a state representative for Iowa House District 67.

Hinson has called the plagiarism a partisan attack.

    I’m “disappointed” Ms. Hinson, didn’t get the finer points on plagiarizing from Joe Biden. He could teach a master class on the subject.

    Ok Abby. Where’s the mask. Your the leader right. Set an example. You should be displaying a mask at all times in public. If the Mayor of MC walks out the front door he should have a mask too. If your receiving tax dollars you should be wearing a mask. Protecting the public. Those states that aren’t showing signs of the pandemic are not testing. Like Iowa did with that dopey testing company out of Utah. Sounds like you don’t open schools then you get no money from the stimulus. They should pass this BS today for more money. Either $1200, $800, or $800×3, $2400, $2500, and finally, last but not least, $2800. This is what they are going to be sending out. Coronie Checks!
