It’s about time: Walsh drops out of Senate race

Senator John Walsh (D- Montana) dropped out of the race for a full term today following allegations of massive plagiarism on his thesis at the prestigious U.S. Army War College. His withdrawal comes after other Democrats in Congress rallied around him, despite his grave ethical breach.

Senator John Tester (D-Montana) had argued that Walsh’s actions were a minor mistake and that voters should overlook a relatively minor mistake when weighed against his military service in Iraq and career serving his country.

As Tester put it, “He’s a soldier, not an academic.”
