You can read the entire report here.

This was not simply a matter of being sloppy with quotes or citations.
The Committee found that Professor Churchill’s misconduct was deliberate and not a matter of an occasional careless error. The Committee found that similar patterns recurred throughout the essays it examined.
Churchill became notorious on the basis of a long series of incendary comments he made, the most well-known being his comparing the victims in the World Trade Center 9/11 attacks to Nazi war criminal Adolph Eichmann.

Church is an archtypal — if rather extreme — example of a politically correct race hustler in academia.
