Current issues relate to the plagiarism of Buisseret and Kupfer.

See "Invalidating the Jacques Marquette Map" in which, in addition to many other things, I spell out the plagiarism in much more detail than in the affidavit below. Respecting "Validating the 1673 Marquette Map," by Buisseret and Kupfer, several times I sent proof of plagiarism to the advisory board of the Journal of Illinois History. They are responsible for dealing with plagiarism, according to Jennifer Hogan, Director of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, as related to my Illinois State Assemblywoman, Linda Chapa LaVia. Not one of the advisory board members responded. I sent this plagiarism information to other agencies, including the Office of Executive Inspector General. As Rep. Chapa LaVia's office characterized it, I am getting the "runaround." In my opinion, nobody wants to tell the emporers about their new clothes, but in this instance, the emporers are in on the swindle.

I also, in "Invalidating," give numerous examples of the easily refuted "scholardhip" of Buisseret and Kupfer present. Many things are not correct. I also shake my head in disbelief that the Journal of Illinois History let this travesty of research slip through.

See a summary of the three points in the plagiarism.
