    It would be nice to use that, but really it doesn’t look like *too* much harm came to the plagiarists with the exception of Michael Bolton. While resignation and such can be harmful to a career, it doesn’t necessarily end a career. I don’t think I would use this to show students the harm that can come to a student for plagiarism. After all, look at VP Biden…

    Most of the people there did receive some light consequences; however, indirectly many lost prestige and that affected their overall popularity (and sales).
