Wonkette has apparently caught Chuck Norris plagiarizing the columns he writes for the Worldnutdaily and other right wing websites. Or at least caught his ghostwriter, who also happens to be his pastor, plagiarizing.
Since your Wonkette cracked the case on Chuck Norris’ hilariously poorly veiled plagiarism in his columns, the professional kicker’s people have refused to talk to us, and his syndicate, which still feautures Norris on its website, has refused multiple requests for comment. Yes, the man whose entire public persona is based on kicking people’s faces off is afraid of some dumb political joke blog. Creators Syndicate has since edited Norris’ most recent column to at leastcredit the news sources from which whole sentences were lifted, but they have yet to take action on the new instances of plagiarism we found yesterday; those articles remain unchanged on Creators’ website. Also, this should probably come as no surprise, but Norris doesn’t even write these columns, from what we’ve found. They appear to be penned by a man who works for him, Todd DuBord, who is known as “Chuck Norris’ pastor.”
An anonymous tipster originally pointed us to DuBord yesterday, and it makes sense, because the man is listed as a “co-author” on Norris’ recent books, and because if Norris tried to type himself, the keyboard would explode from the sheer force.
