A candidate for Congress is facing accusations of plagiarism.  Democrat Ann Callis is running in the 13th Congressional District against incumbent Rodney Davis, but Republicans say she's not being quite honest when it comes to the issues.  In fact, they say much of the text on the "Issues" page on her website is identical to that of an Iowa politician.  GOP members accuse Callis' team of swiping the information and pasting it onto their own site.  Callis denies that claim and says they had their site up well before the Iowa politician.  Illinois Republican Party Chairman Jack Dorgan said the Iowa website was created at least two weeks before Callis's was.
