    Paul’s office did not immediately return a request for comment on this instance but said Tuesday that “there have also been occasions where quotations or typesetting indentations have been left out through errors in our approval process.”
    But if you look at the comparison of the original quote and Paul's rip-off, you see that a couple of sentences and rephrasings were added in Paul's book to the original.  

    That's tell-tale sign of the plagiarizer, making small changes to pretend that it's original. If the quotes were exactly the same, then the "missing quotations" might be, barely, plausible.  But they're not.
