The scandal surrounding Trump University is already an albatross for Donald Trumps presidential campaign. The entire enterprise has been accused of being a con job, ripping off students who trusted the developers name.

.

But as it turns out, theres a new, related controversy surrounding the Trump Institute, which is something else. The New York Times reports today that the Republican candidate lent his name, and his credibility to this seminar business, which offered Trumps wealth-creating secrets and strategies for up to $2,000.

.

The truth was something else altogether.

.

As with Trump University, the Trump Institute promised falsely that its teachers would be handpicked by Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump did little, interviews show, besides appear in an infomercial one that promised customers access to his vast accumulated knowledge. I put all of my concepts that have worked so well for me, new and old, into our seminar, he said in the 2005 video, adding, Im teaching what Ive learned.

.

Reality fell far short. In fact, the institute was run by a couple who had run afoul of regulators in dozens of states and been dogged by accusations of deceptive business practices and fraud for decades. Similar complaints soon emerged about the Trump Institute.

.

Yet there was an even more fundamental deceit to the business, unreported until now: Extensive portions of the materials that students received after forking over their seminar fees, supposedly containing Mr. Trumps special wisdom, had been plagiarized from an obscure real estate manual published a decade earlier.

.

.

Consider the revelations from recent weeks:

.

* Those who ran Trump University have faced credible allegations of stuffing their own pockets by preying on the vulnerable, selling unsuspecting students snake oil at indefensible prices and through misleading claims.

.

* Trump has boasted at great length about the millions of dollars hes given away through charitable donations though many of these donations dont appear to exist and many of the promises he made publicly went unfulfilled.

.

* A considerable chunk of Trumps campaign fundraising went to Trump corporate products and services, giving rise to a new word for the political lexicon: scampaign.

.

* And now the Trump Institute is facing allegations of being yet another fraudulent operation, complete with bogus claims, shady characters, and the theft of intellectual property at the ventures heart.
