After The New York Times reported that Sen. John Walsh plagiarized at least a quarter of his master’s thesis, the Montana Democrat is telling The Associated Press that post-traumatic stress disorder may have played a role.
“I don’t want to blame my mistake on PTSD, but I do want to say it may have been a factor,” the Iraq war veteran said. “My head was not in a place very conducive to a classroom and an academic environment.”
Walsh told the AP that he was on medication at the time and was dealing with the suicide of a fellow veteran.
How about blaming it on personal greed, power lust, a complete lack of personal scruples or ethics, and an absolute disdain for the rules that non-sociopaths follow?
In other words, a perfect Democrat politician?
