Again German politician plagiarism scandal

Silvana Koch-Mehrin, interviewed by the BBC

After German Defence war minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg of the conservative CSU party, part of the governing coalition, had to resign in a plagiarism scandal … now it is the turn of the “free market” FDP, another coalition party.

Ms Silvana Koch-Mehrin chairs the FDP party caucus in the European parliament. She is also deputy chair of that whole parliament.

Now, German scholars have started studying her PhD thesis. According to the Süddeutsche Zeitung, so far they have found that at least 10% of the text is plagiarism.
