Rand Paul Accused Of Plagiarizing Speech From Wikipedia

Rachel Maddow accused Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) of plagiarizing four lines of a recent speech from the Wikipedia page on the 1997 film Gattaca, while others noted that Paul appeared to borrow several lines from the Wikipedia entry on the 1988 drama Stand and Deliver during a speech earlier this year.
