Maclver Institute: [Madison, WI] As tens of thousands of public employees skipped work this week to attend protest rallies outside the Wisconsin State Capitol, many wondered if they would face any disciplinary action for unexcused absences.
On Saturday, a group of men and women in lab coats purporting to be doctors were handing out medical excuse notes, without examining the ‘patients.’
“I asked this doctor what he was doing and he told me they were handing out excuses to people who were feeling sick due to emotional, mental or financial distress,” said Christian Hartsock. “They never performed an exam–he asked me how I was feeling today and I said I’m from California and I’m not used to the cold, so he handed me a note.” [MORE]
I cannot help but wonder if this gal got herself a doctors' note? I have a strong feeling she was one of the first in line.
So much of these lefty protests are just straight up Astroturf. Even the excuses for their absence are fake. The left is already discrediting this story because they figured out that the guy who shot the video has done other sting videos. I think the left would have a stronger case if they could prove the doctors were fake rather than trying to discredit the messenger. After all the doctor's name and license number are right there on the slip.
