Virg Bernero’s progeny busted for plagiarism, sinks the ship

This was originally posted on Michigan Taxes on the 3rd of December, 2009 before the election. I have subsequently brought it over here.

As it happens to turn out, Virginia Bernero, the daughter of Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, is in my Geology 100 class.

One of the things we had to do in this class was make a poster about a national park that we were assigned.

Well, turns out a buddy of mine from another class I’m in was in her group. He had emailed her information regarding the park direct from a website and included the link. The idea was that she would take a look at the information and use it accordingly, but not by snaking the information verbatim.

Well guess what she did? Word for word, baby. The prof found out, and everyone got a zero. From when I last talked, it sounded like she was sticking with giving everyone a zero and won’t be changing it. This is despite the fact that the other members of the group weren’t responsible for the plagiarism.

It’s almost scary the analogy that would happen if Virg became governor.
