    Submitting the same article more than once, or even on more than one site, is very bad.
    Google does not like duplicate content.

    Original content is how to find success with Google.

    It shouldn't penalize you, but I think there is little to gain from having the same article on a bunch of sites.  That is similar to posting a press release.  However, if the article you release is really important, people will naturally link to it and that will help you. 

    If you are going the article approach to building links, write unique high quality articles and submit one per site.  This is quite a bit of work, but has value.
