Sen. Rand Paul has moved his opinion column to Breitbart.com, just a day after being dropped by The Washington Times amid allegations of plagiarism.

Breitbart ran a lead story on its homepage Wednesday night announcing its coup.

"We are pleased to add Sen. Paul to our lineup of fearless, original thought leaders," said Breitbart News CEO Larry Solov.

"Most of all, we think the fighting spirit he has become known for is a perfect fit for Breitbart News Network and reflects that of our founder, Andrew Breitbart."

Breitbart took a few digs at The Times while it was at it, stating that it has surpassed the Times in web traffic, and including a quote from Paul's senior aide that the senator "looks forward to the new, wider audience for his columns."

As for The Times, in its announcement of the Kentucky senator's exit Tuesday, its editor John Solomon wrote, "We expect our columnists to submit original work and to properly attribute material, and we appreciate that the senator and his staff have taken responsibility for an oversight in one column."
