HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Sen. John Walsh and U.S. Army War College officials aren't speaking about an investigation into plagiarism allegations against the Montana Democrat more than a month after it was launched.

War College spokeswoman Carol Kerr and Walsh spokeswoman Andrea Helling said separately on Monday the process is not complete.

The New York Times reported in July that Walsh plagiarized passages from a 2007 research paper required for his master's degree from the school. The allegations led to Walsh dropping his election campaign to keep his Senate seat.

The war college assigned an academic review board to look into the matter on Aug. 15. The board's findings were to be reviewed by the Army and Department of Defense's inspectors general.
