Breitbart Is Here… 20 Doctors Disciplined For Handing Out Fake Sick Notes to Protesters & Andrew Breitbart

His legacy lives on…

Breitbart Is Here

In February 2011 a licensed Wisconsin physician offered to give Andrew Breitbart a “Doctor’s Note” so he could skip work the next week and protest Republican Governor Scott Walker.

Andrew was in Madison to speak at the February tea party rally.

Today it was reported that the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s medical school disciplined 20 doctors for writing out sick notes for radical far left protesters.
Channel 3000 reported:

Newly released records show the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s medical school disciplined 20 doctors for writing sick notes for protesters during last years’ labor demonstrations at the state Capitol.

Records obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the Wisconsin State Journal on Thursday show 11 doctors were docked pay between the amounts of $500 and $4,001 and had to attend ethics training.

Nine others were residents, or doctors-in-training. They were given written reprimands and also had to attend ethics training.

All the doctors were warned that further violations could result in termination.

    Good!!! Now, what about those teachers and others who were given the notes. With a failing education system I would love to see some teachers FIRED and get ones that want to teach for the love of teaching.

    I am sick of our hard earned money going for inapt teachers and defected doctors.

    I think they should have been fired.
    They were not thinking of their professional oaths, but their political affiliation. Enough already.

  • befuddled

    Liberalism is not an ideology, it’s a religion for these people. Those Doctors and Teachers in Wisconsin are no better than the Taliban.Every time I think there would be a rationale voice from the left, I keep getting disappointed.

    Strip them of their medical licenses. Permanent suspension. Never allowed to practice in Wisconsin again.

  • Patty

    I do wonder what exactly doctors like these are studying in. Abortions.

  • The Way, The Truth & The Life

    I say, let them continue in their practice but publish their names and affiliations to let the public know who they are so they can decide whether or not to put their trust in them. I’d like to see how well they do in their careers as a result.

  • Buffalobob

    “They were given written reprimands and also had to attend ethics training”. This is what happens when you place the union goons above the good of the public. Ethics training! if they did not know that what they were doing was not only unethical but possibly criminal they should be fired.

  • decentAmerican

    the University was very lenient on these so-called docs. Becoming a doctor requires the highest form of ethics and honesty…and here these “docs” were out there being grossly dishonest, lying, and doing it brazenly in the open. If you can’t trust them to be honest in this situation, how can you trust them for anything else?

    they need to be more than disciplined. they need to be FIRED, and licenses taken away, so that they can never touch an innocent person again with their lying hands.

    It’s strange, you work all your life to become a doctor, yet they are willing to risk all they work for all because of their unnatural manlove for the demon in the white house.

    Hey Liberal doc nutjobs…..is it really worth it? To throw it all away for a man who doesn’t give a rat’s arse about you or your family or your country?

    Is that all?

    Some punishment.

  • Valerie

    I suppose these were all either employees of the medical school or students. They can always go to California to write prescriptions for “medical marijuana.”

  • Dave-O

    Prank ’em – Breitbart and/or James O’Keefe would love this –

    find out their names and business address – print up business cards with their names and business office – stamp “Free Health Care” on them – and hand out boxes of them at Occupy Wall Street rallies and to the homeless people under the bridges. Hilarity ensues.

  • rocky

    I think andrew was such a great man . . . .while there are others who try to carry on his work there never will be a man like him. . . . So much fun to watch him in action . . .
    he will be missed . . . . .

    God Bless Andrew……He lives on in our hearts and minds

    Andrew had a special kind of love that had to share itself with the world. What a wonderful example he was.

    My personal thanks to his family for their sharing of him with us.

    I Doubt they will learn a whole lot from Ethics training. Anyone educated enough to attempt to become a Doctor, SHOULD at that point already have better Ethics then they displayed with their lies, in Madison in Feb. There is the Oath .. First do no harm!!! If these are the sort of Doctors we are turning out these days.. Heaven help the sick and defenseless people that end up being their patients. Do the majority of people have no shame or no values of right and wrong anymore?? Lord save and bless AMERICA. I fear she has lost her way.

    I smile in looking at the reactions to the leniency. I think as conservatives we could find others easier to teach if we did not want to see the opposition utterly destroyed for their mistakes and/or stupidity. Take a young doctor with $300,000 in debt and take away his liscense and you have destroyed his life. I am sure they are aware now how they stupidly put their livelihoods in danger.
    I think a new resident who has stretched his pay to buy a new house going home to tell his wife that he was just fined $500 will find an emphasis to the lesson. Even a well paid doctor will find recriminations at home when he has to explain the $4,000 loss. I will bet they put a real scare about losing their liscense.
    Let’s leave seeking total destruction to the left.

  • atticcellar

    The government worker unions will repay any amount “lost” to these “doctors”.. The national unions are spending untold millions in Wisconsin to unseat the Tea Party candidates through special recall elections.. They shipped in government workers from all over the country to march on the capitol in Madison. In the Wisconsin city I live in the teachers were caught “teaching the standardized test” to their students to make it appear that they were doing a better job than they actually were.. All they recieved for this deception was a slap on the wrist. During the protest teachers in Appleton Wisconsin marched thier students (children that they brain wash) from a local public school (during school hours) into the city in a show of support.. Using the children as pawns should have resulted in the termination of these facist.

    And this is why what passes for “The Right” keeps getting hammered repeatedly. Instead of taking the fight to leftists who are willing to do just about anything to prevail, they settle for wrist-slapping and other half-measures that do little to dissuade the opposition from resorting to unethical and sometimes illegal tactics in advancing their cause.

    In the meantime, while our liberties and freedoms are under assault from all sides by leftists, we can feel good that they didn’t suffer the full consequences of their unethical or illegal behavior…

    Exactly! Enough of the self-serving keep spoiling the already spoiled brats.
    The LEFT thinks NOTHING of RUINING people. They completely deserve what they dish out. Those doctors have a high probability of routinely covering for union employees if they were so willing to be so blatent about FRAUD. What ELSE do they do of a day … cheating insurance companies perhaps?

    Where’s RICO? A coordinated effort to FRAUD over several school districts so hundreds of union employees could protest and still be paid? The schools closed, remember? Not enough staffing? How many kids sat home not being educated? Parents had to make other arrangements, including missing work those days to take care of their kids?

    The old days, a doctor wanting to make a difference in the world went to Africa and practiced medicine in a village. Now, they stand on street corners handing out the equivalent of ‘mommy excuses’ to allow people to steal pay they didn’t earn.

    UWI has been exposed as a sleazy, duplicitous den of greedy thieves. The education collapse can’t come fast enough. They destroyed what was once a solid provider of skills, now they provide excuses to cheat… the admin, the professors, the staffs.

    i borrowed this from a commentor at fr.
    Partial transcript of 1985 video interview of KGB defector Yuri Alexander Bezmenov:
    Most of the people who (reeducated) in the sixties, drop outs or half-baked intellectuals are now occupying the positions of power in te Government, civil service, business, mass media, educational system. You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated, They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black you still cannot change the basic perception and illogical behavior. In other words, these people, the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To get rid society of these people you need another twenty or fifteen years to educate a new generation of patriotically-minded and commonsense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of the United States society.

  • squeaky

    “To get rid society of these people you need another twenty or fifteen years to educate a new generation of patriotically-minded and commonsense people who would be acting…” and oddly the left held the same thought back in the late 60′ early 70’s. being a sociology major i was told that the right couldn’t be re-educated but given time would die off.

  • Arch

    Teachers are public workers who are paid with taxpayers’ money. If they want to protest, they are free to do so, but not on the clock. At a minimum, every hour missed should be deducted from their pay. Knowingly using a false doctor’s note is fraud by both the doctor and the teacher. Had they been working on a US DoD contract, they could all go to prison.

  • joel

    What a joke. They, and the phony sick teachers, should all be fired. There is no justice.

  • John Stess

    this is a test

  • Over50

    Let me get this straight, these individuals helped others attempt to steal thousands in State funds (by getting illegally paid for a false sick day) – and all that happens is a minor fine and ethics training? (Granted ethics training can be pretty painful, but still…)

  • tj

    Can the teacher’s union be charged with a RICO violation?
    This was a coordinated conspiracy to defraud several counties in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Attorney General should consider charges and freezing their assets while the criminal activity is being investigated.

    That would be much more effective than going after individuals (doctors or teachers).

    We need to limit the illegal activities of these unions (until we can ban unions from the public sector).

  • werewife

    What’s most amusing is that Andrew Breitbart was approached and offered an excuse in the first place. Given that his wasn’t exactly a household name, except among politics chasers, there’s no reason that silly woman should have known to STAY AWAY from the big blond bison who seemed to be having a great time… but for the love of Johnny Ramone, he had a CAMERA CREW with him! Shouldn’t that ring the alarm bells in anyone who isn’t an utter imbecile? Oh, yeah…

    G-d, how I miss him. Anyone want to collaborate on some RPFF (real people fanfiction)? I’ll check back here…

  • wanumba

    11 doctors with a case of fraud would be considered an epidemic if it was disease, endemic if it was regular occurance. UWM is sick.

  • kathteach

    The Madison Teachers were out FOUR days that week – not one. The public schools were closed for four straight days. So teachers got notes for more than one sick day.

    And they were not docked one dime – because they had Doctor’s Notes for Walker-pnemonia?

  • owl

    I want their names published.

    This is our schools. It started and we allowed it to be the norm professor, then the high school teacher, then middle, and now K. Nothing less than their names in public with the punishments made public. Ethics.

    Breitbart is here.

    OT but the same should be applied to what NBC did with the Zimmerman tape. Weak apology is not enough. I need to see the NAME of who doctored that tape.

    REMEMBER BREITBART. Remember the screwed up charges they put on him about editing tape? If we want to beat Obama, we must seriously damage MSM because this is the most important tool he has. Money can not buy what he gets for FREE.

    I want Breitbart. He would have kept working until he got the names and then their faces would have made the NEWS.
