There is also documented plagiarism in her fanfiction, which, when found, resulted in the forcible removal of her work from external archives.

It baffles me that someone with her past in plagiarism would ever be published. No offense to CC or anything.
Why did they do it?

Cassandra Claire -- who, yes, is the same person as Cassandra Clare -- is known widely throughout the fanfiction community for her set of stories about Draco Malfoy (from the Harry Potter series), and the Very Secret Diaries (which takes place in the Lord of the Rings 'verse). While they were wildly popular for some time, for a variety of reasons, they have all but vanished from the 'net ...

You have to be kidding, right? Poorly worded disclaimer? She stole...STOLE...entire sections from other people's novels. Are you understanding that? STOLE. Lifted WHOLE SECTIONS OF TEXT from several novels without their author's permission and then had the nerve to claim it was her own. Not to mention blatantly ripping off whole scenes pretty much verbatim. No disclaimer can excuse plagiarizing.

Because she has a built in fanbase. A lot of the people that read her fanfiction were like "OMG who cares if she plagiarized?! She's sooooo great, you're just jealous!" I think the publishers were cashing in on the fangirls that would buy anything Cassandra Cla(i)re published, plagiarized or otherwise.

Actually she did make money off of it. As mentioned above, her fanfiction's popularity is one of the main reasons that she got her current book deal. Also in 2004, her laptop was stolen and her fans donated to buy her a new one:

Actually, that's just what she said. FF.net forced her to remove them because of a plagiarism suit, and then she removed them from her personal site because she had some hate mail.
