Add "Plagiarist" to Russell Pearce's Titles

I'm not sure whether it makes me feel better or worse that Russell Pearce doesn't seem to have that many original ideas, directly lifting quite a bit of his writings online, including large chunks of his website, from other people:

For several years, media outlets in Arizona and at the national level have explored links between Pearce and extremist groups, and in 2006 he was caught circulating a Holocaust-denying article from a West Virginia-based white supremacist group. In issuing an apology, Pearce claimed to not have known about the National Alliance's views.

But a new examination of Pearce's website and public statements reveals that the self-proclaimed architect of Arizona's "papers please" immigration law has regularly borrowed significant portions of text from the writings of hard-line white nationalists, fringe anti-immigrant activists, and others whose views far fall outside the mainstream and presented them as his own.
