Facts Don’t Support Richard Carmona’s Claim That Tensions Were Result of Reform


Jeff Flake

Carmona’s abuse of travel and staff was at heart of disagreements 

PHOENIX – In response to testimony from Dr. Cristina Beato, former Acting Assistant Secretary of Health at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Richard Carmona has lashed out and tried to discredit her.

Carmona claims: “I refused to politicize science, and that’s what the issue really is here” (KPNX, 10/11/12). But that’s not what the issue is.

On May 22, 2012 the Associated Press reported that “Emails that The Associated Press obtained through the Freedom of Information Act reinforce that there were tensions within HHS about where Carmona should go and what groups he should address. One email noted that Carmona made 19 trips in the first six months after taking office, 12 of them with stops inArizona, San Diego or both. ‘I think we have a real problem here,’ HHS employee Hal Thompson wrote.” Carmona owns homes in Arizona and San Diego.

Dr. Beato reiterated her testimony to Politico: “In the interview with POLITICO, Beato stood by her 2007 testimony. Beato said one of the issues that led to a midnight visit by Carmona involved his wish to visit the University of California, San Francisco, his alma mater, to receive an honorary degree. Beato alleged that Carmona wanted to pay for the trip using government funds, which she refused to allow.

“Not only does Richard Carmona not have the temperament to serve in the United States Senate, his refusal to be straight with voters raises serious questions about his honesty as well,” said Andrew Wilder, communications director for Flake for Senate.

On Thursday, the Flake campaign began airing an ad statewide on broadcast and cable featuring the personal testimony of Dr. Cristina Beato, who served as Acting Assistant Secretary of Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services from 2003 to 2005. Dr. Beato recounts the night that Dr. Carmona angrily slammed on herdoor in the middle of the night in a rage to continue an argument that he started earlier that day.

Background on Richard Carmona’s History of Confrontation

Dr. Cristina Beato Testified To Congress In 2007 About An Incident In Which She Felt Threatened By Richard Carmona 

During His Surgeon General Tenure, Carmona’s Boss, Cristina Beato, Alleged That He “Banged On Her Door And Yelled At Her In The Middle Of The Night.” “But behind the scenes, his former boss Cristina Beato — a onetime supporter turned bitter enemy — was painting a very different picture of Carmona for House investigators, alleging that an angry Carmona twice banged on her door and yelled at her in the middle of the night after workplace disputes.” (John Bresnahan and Manu Raju, “Richard Carmona Draws Fire From Another Former Boss,” Politico, 5/21/12)

  • With Her Two Children Inside, Beato “Refused To Open The Door Because She Was Frightened Of His Behavior.” “Beato’s most eye-opening accusation involves two incidents in which she says Carmona banged on her door at her house in the middle of the night, screaming at her over issues the two disagreed on. Beato, a single mother with two children, said she refused toopen the door because she was frightened of his behavior. The two lived in the same neighborhood on the National Institute of Health campus at the time.” (John Bresnahan and Manu Raju, “Richard Carmona Draws Fire From Another Former Boss,” Politico, 5/21/12)
  • “‘I Think Any Normal Woman, When Somebody Comes In At Midnight Demanding And Raising Their Voice, Would Feel Threatened,’ Beato Said In The Interview.” (John Bresnahan and Manu Raju, “Richard Carmona Draws Fire From Another Former Boss,” Politico, 5/21/12)

Beato Alleged Carmona Was An “Extremely Angry” Person And A “Living Nightmare” To Work With. “Beato gave her testimony in secret in 2007, saying Carmona was an ‘extremely angry’ person, a ‘living nightmare’ to work with, had trouble working for a female supervisor and abused travel privileges by improperly billing taxpayers forsome personal expenses, according to the testimony. When POLITICO contactedBeato recently, she confirmed her testimony and reiterated her accusations on the record, five years after she originally gave them to the House committee.” (John Bresnahan and Manu Raju, “Richard Carmona Draws Fire From Another Former Boss,” Politico, 5/21/12)

Carmona Declined Interviews On The Matter. “Carmona declined several interview requests for this story, but campaign aides furiously denied the allegations.” (John Bresnahan and Manu Raju, “Richard Carmona Draws Fire From Another Former Boss,” Politico, 5/21/12)

Carmona Was Also Accused Of Being “Manipulative” And A “Liar” 

Beato: “Dr. Carmona Is Not A Team Player. Dr. Carmona, Within 6 Or 8 Months, Had Burned Bridges Everywhere.” DR. CRISTINA BEATO: “The second thing is we had a very ambitious agenda, and I specifically wanted to work on the issues of disparities. Dr. Carmona is not a team player. Dr. Carmona, within 6 or 8 months, had burned bridges everywhere, and he did not have comradery within the Department or within other departments.” (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony Of Cristina Beato, 11/2/07, Page 44)

Beato: “[B]ut Never Have I Dealt With Anyone Who Was A Liar As Much As Dr. Carmona Was.” DR. CRISTINA BEATO: “I was the Chief Medical Officer in a large academic center, and I have dealt with difficult personalities — chairs of neurosurgery, chairs of surgery — but never have I dealt with anyone who was a liar as much as Dr. Carmona was. He would tell me things about a trip that turned out not to be true. He would tell me things about officers that turned out not to be true.” (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony Of Cristina Beato, 11/2/07, Page 46)

Beato: “Dr. Carmona Is Manipulative, And He’s A Liar.” DR. CRISTINA BEATO: “I had an extremely difficult time. And I have kept my mouth shut for years, because, first and foremost, I’m a physician, and I believe my professionalism will not allow that. But Dr. Carmona is manipulative, and he’s a liar.” (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony Of Cristina Beato, 11/2/07, Page 46)

Dr. Cristina Beato: “Carmona Has A Strong Personality That’s Totally Dysfunctional And Not Professional And Certainly Not Ethical.” (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony Of Cristina Beato, 11/2/07, Page 86)

Carmona Was Accused Of Having A Serious Problem With Women In The Workplace 

Dr. Cristina Beato: “Dr. Carmona Also Had A Very Difficult Time Having A Female Hispanic Supervisor. He And I, Behind Closed Doors, Clashed Frequently. I Would Never Do This In Public, But He Insulted Me. He Tried To Belittle Me.” DR. CRISTINA BEATO: “Dr. Carmona was very, very brilliant, and he worked very hard. Dr. Carmona also had a very difficult time having a female Hispanic supervisor. He and I, behind closed doors, clashed frequently. I would never do this in public, but he insulted me. He tried to belittle me.” (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony Of Cristina Beato, 11/2/07, Page 45)

  • Dr. Cristina Beato: “I Experienced Sexism From Him.” (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony Of Cristina Beato, 11/2/07, Page 45)
  • Dr. Cristina Beato: “He Was An Extremely Angry Person. And He Would Walk Out The Door And Put On A Smile. I Have Never Seen Such Dysfunctionality In My Life.” (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony Of Cristina Beato, 11/2/07, Page 45)

Beato: “He Has Problems With Women, Serious Problems With Women.” CRISTINA BEATO: “And he has problems with women, serious problems with women. And he could not stand the fact that I was going to beASH. He tried to undermine my nomination several times, both on the Hill here — because I know my Senator that sponsored me — as well as in the White House. He’d try to go in — and people would tell me this, you know. It wastotally unprofessional, totally unprofessional.” (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony Of Cristina Beato, 11/2/07, Page 48)

Beato: “It Was A Living Nightmare. It Was A Living Nightmare.” (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Testimony Of Cristina Beato, 11/2/07, Page 48)

Carmona Also Had A Confrontation With A Female Colleague When He Was Head Of The Pima County Health System 

Campoy, A County Health Commissioner, Reported To The County Attorney That A Doctor Had A Drug Abuse Problem And Was Writing False Prescriptions; Carmona “Had Already Dealt With The Doctor On The Issue Two Years Before.” “His final battle there came in a dispute in May 1999 with county health commissioner Sylvia Campoy, who had reported to the county attorney allegations that a Kino doctor with a drug abuse problem had written false prescriptions to access drugs. Carmona had already dealt with the doctor on the issue two years before, and after an internal investigation, encouraged the doctor to report himself to the Board of Medical Examiners.” (Ann-Eve Pedersen and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

“After Campoy Reported The Allegations, Carmona Became Irate, Saying She Had Violated The Accused Doctor’s Confidentiality, an opinion shared by the Kino Community hospital board and the Pima County medical society.” (Ann-Eve Pedersen and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

“‘What I Got From Dr. Carmona [After Reporting The Case] Was Antagonism And . . . Threats,’ Campoy Later Told An Investigator From The Arizona Department Of Public Safety’s Prescription Fraud Unit, according to a state Board of Medical Examiners document obtained through Arizona’s public records law. ‘I was screamed at, I was yelled at. I was told it was none of my business. I was told that I had breached peer review.’” (Ann-Eve Pedersen and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

Carmona Bullied A Female Nurse When He Was A Director At The Tucson Medical Center 

“Court And Hospital Records Show A History Of Conflicts Between Carmona And Other Doctors, Who Complained About His Lack Of Cooperation, ‘High Handedness,’ ‘Unwillingness To Communicate’ And ‘His Escalation Of Disagreements In An Effort To Prove He Was Right.’” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

“In One Case, Hospital Administrators Cited His ‘Bullying’ Of A Nurse Who Said He Failed To Diagnose A Young Boy’s Skull Fracture In 1991.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

Carmona Retaliated By Demanding Angie Calvino’s Resignation Because She Complained About Him. “Carmona demanded Angie Calvino’s resignation after she complained to colleagues about his medical judgment, rather than reporting her concerns to the hospital’s confidential peer review committee, court records show.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

“In A Mediated Agreement, Calvino Agreed To A Demotion If Carmona Did Not Report Her To The State Nursing Board For Not Following Protocol, According To Those Familiar With The Case.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

“However, Court Records Show That A Few Months Later Carmona Did Report Her, And Calvino Remained Demoted.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

Despite Troubled Past With Tucson Medical, Kino Community Hospital Brought Carmona Aboard – Where He Immediately Clashed With The Longtime Chief Of Surgery Who Proceeded To Resign Because Of Carmona’s Management Style 

“Two Years Later, Carmona Was Hired As Chief Executive Officer And Medical Director Of Kino Community Hospital In Tucson.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

“There He Clashed Repeatedly With The Hospital’s Longtime Chief Of Surgery, Eric Ramsay.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

“They Fought Over Staffing And The Residency Program.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

“Internal memos made available to The Times also show that Carmona chastised Ramsay for maintaining offices that were ‘dirty and unkempt without the slightest bit of an attempt to tidy’ them.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

“After Working Under Carmona For A Year Ramsay Resigned, Ending A 37-Year Association With The Hospital.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

Ramsay Blasted Carmona In His Letter Dated The Same Day He Quit: 

Ramsay To Carmona: “Never in my entire medical career have I seen such gross interference by a hospital administrator without the slightest attempt to reach a cooperative understanding.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

Ramsay To Carmona: “Clearly you need a lot of help and instruction in how to manage your current position for which you have had no training or previous experience.” (Ann-Eve Pederson and Megan Garvey, “Squaring Off Over Nominee,” Los Angeles Times, 7/8/02)

    …and about Dr. Cristina Beato…

    “ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A doctor who lost her bid for a high-level federal job amid allegations she padded her resume and denied medical care to immigrants, which she refutes, wants to return to work at the University of New Mexico.”

    “Dr. Cristina Beato, a former UNM School of Medicine administrator, has been on unpaid leave since 2001, when she started a stint at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.”

    http://www.stamfordadvocate.com/news/article/Doctor-requests-return-to-work-at-UNM-hospital-3804803.php

    Beato Has A History Of Ethical Problems, Including Falsifying Her Resume.

    Beato also has a history of ethical problems, proven and substantiated by independent reporting, including extensive inaccuracies in her resume that derailed her nomination as permanent Assistant Secretary for Health. The Washington Post reported that at “several institutions listed on Beato’s résumé, officials said they could find no evidence of her service,” and former colleagues “disputed assertions she made, saying at a minimum she had puffed up her role in several projects.” After her nomination died, Beato continued to live in government-subsidized housing for senior officials, even taking advantage of this perk for five months after leaving government service. She only left her subsidized housing once her presence was uncovered by the Washington Post.

    So, what has Dr. Cristina Beato been up to since she’s been out of government?

    “Beato currently serves as the chief medical officer for the firm, Ernst & Young.”

    http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/article/Doctor-requests-return-to-work-at-UNM-hospital-3804803.php

    Ernst and Young? Good people!

    “Ernst & Young Partners Convicted of Tax Fraud”

    “New York (May 11, 2009)”

    “By WebCPA Staff”

    “Two current and two former Ernst & Young partners were found guilty of tax fraud and conspiracy charges related to tax shelters.”

    http://www.accountingtoday.com/news/Ernst-Young-Partners-Convicted-Tax-Fraud-50430-1.html

    Looks like Dr. Beato found a good outfit to work for!

    “Bally Total Fitness”

    “In December 2009, Ernst & Young agreed to pay an $8.5 million fine – one of the highest settlements ever paid by an accounting firm – to the Securities and Exchange Commission for its work auditing the books of Bally Total Fitness. The firm agreed to an order that it cease and desist from violating securities laws. Six partners were also sanctioned by the commission and barred from auditing public companies.”

    Nice going, Dr. Beato! Great outfit you’re associated with! Now what was that you were saying about Richard Carmona?

  2. Conservative American says:

    Now, let’s hear from a WOMAN who knows BOTH Cristina Beato AND Dr. Carmona!

    “Jennifer Cabe, a former colleague of both Beato and Carmona at HHS, defended Carmona at a press conference today. She denied Beato’s claim that Carmona has problems with women.”

    “Cabe, the executive director of the Canyon Ranch Institute, where Carmona serves with her as a board member, called Beato’s allegations “100 percent false.”

    “Dr. Cristina Beato isn’t credible. Dr. Beato frequently tried to alter reports, remarks and speeches out of the office of the surgeon general when Dr. Carmona was the surgeon general in an effort to twist science to fit a political agenda. Her political agenda,” Cabe said. “I’ve worked with Dr. Carmona for 10 years, and in that time he has shown himself to be a true leader. He is kind. He is compassionate toward everyone in every walk of life. And he’s a pleasure to work with.”

    http://azcapitoltimes.com/news/2012/10/12/richard-carmona-denies-allegation-calls-jeff-flake-ad-deplorable/

    Oooooh! So according to another WOMAN, Jennifer Cabe, who knows both Cristina Beato AND Dr. Carmona and worked with BOTH of them at HHS, Beato’s statements are “100 percent false” and Beato has her own “political agenda”!

    This entire “Press Release” is, as Yogi Berra would say, “Deja vu all over again!” It’s the same smear tactics and character assassination which Liberals employed when they trotted out Anita Hill in an attempt to torpedo the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination! What does that tell us about how “Conservative” Jeff Flake and his gang are?

  3. Conservative American says:

    Now, let’s take a REAL CLOSE look at the credibility of Dr. Cristina V. Beato!

    “Cristina V. Beato was named last July as assistant secretary of health, one of the top policy officials at the Department of Health and Human Services, but has yet to explain several discrepancies regarding her credentials. These include claims that she served as medical attache at the U.S. Embassy in Turkey, received a master’s degree in public health from the University of Wisconsin, “established” an occupational health clinic at the University of New Mexico and published a scientific paper on inert gases.”

    “At several institutions listed on Beato’s résumé, officials said they could find no evidence of her service, while former colleagues at the University of New Mexico and an affiliated hospital in Albuquerque disputed assertions she made, saying at a minimum she had puffed up her role in several projects.”

    “Former colleagues in Albuquerque were most surprised by Beato’s assertions that she was “one of the principal leaders who revolutionized medical education in American universities by implementing the Problem Based Learning curriculum.” The curriculum was developed while Beato was in medical school.”

    “That’s an exaggeration,” said Gary Rosenberg, chairman of the neurology department at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, the university’s hospital system.”

    “In several instances, Beato’s résumé is vague. Under professional experience, she lists “medical consultant” at the Technical-Vocational Institute and Presbyterian Senior Health Spectrum in Albuquerque and a 12-year relationship with the Sheet Metal Workers in Washington. None of the organizations has any record on Beato, nor do officials at the State Department, who said they have never heard term “medical attache.”

    “Under educational experience, Beato lists: “successful candidate, occupational medicine, MPH (master’s of public health), University of Wisconsin, 1995.” A university spokeswoman said the school does not offer such a degree.”

    “Yet even Beato’s friends said it appears that she gave herself extra credit on her résumé.”

    “At the All Faiths Receiving Home in Albuquerque, Executive Director Steve Johnson praised Beato as a dedicated volunteer physician who provided basic care to the abused and neglected. But she was not the medical director, as her résumé states, he added.”

    “William Wiese, director of the Institute for Public Health at the University of New Mexico, said it was inaccurate for Beato to say she had “established” the school’s occupational health clinic. “The clinic existed before she was hired. There was another medical director before her,” he said.”

    “Similarly, he said, Beato’s description of the clinic as a “one-stop comprehensive care for 13,000 employees” is an exaggeration. But Wiese said Beato was a good administrator and teacher.”

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A29549-2004Jun9.html

    “Exaggerations”, degrees that don’t exist, postions that don’t exist, references to employers who never heard of her, claims of estabishing a clinic which existed BEFORE she was hired, her claim of being a medical director refuted by her employer!

    Is THIS what the Flake campaign thinks is going to hurt Dr. Richard Carmona?

    Guess what, Flake campaign, you just self-destructed, LOL! ;-)

    • This is unbelievabe. Great research, CA!

      • Conservative American says:

        Thanks a lot, zoo! I really did work long and hard to find THAT one!

        It’s obvious that the Flake campaign is making good use of professional search engine optimization services. Any search about Beato will immediately bring up Flake’s propaganda.

        It also appers that the internet was well scrubbed before the Flake campaign went public with the Beato ads. However, it is impossible to scrub EVERYTHING! You just have to be presistent and keep searching under an ever-widening circle of related subjects.

        I don’t think that the Flake campaign will have a lot of luck making that link dead because it is from a major newspaper. If they do, however, I have the entire article at the ready.

        Let’s see if we can get the link and/or the most pertinent “busts” circulating around! ;-)

        • Friend,

          As you may have seen on television, Congressman Jeff Flake has taken Arizona’s Senate race into the gutter.

          Multiple media outlets called Congressman Flake’s approval of a highly discredited and 100% untrue political hit job on Rich “ruthless” and “sleazy.” They’ve also noted that these personal attacks only “began as Carmona appeared to gain momentum” in this race.

          Why level such a deceitful bomb on Arizonans, you ask?

          Well, early ballots just started to hit mailboxes – and just yesterday – another public poll was released showing Rich 4-points ahead of Congressman Flake. It’s the 3rd poll in ten days that shows Rich in the lead. It also comes on the heels of polling that shows Rich winning 75% of the Latino vote in Arizona!

          So we are issuing a “Fact Check” on this “Flaked Claim” so you can see how desperate Congressman Flake and his friends in Washington have become.

          ——————————————————————————–

          FACT CHECK FLAKE

          FLAKED ISSUE: Congressman Flake’s campaign ad titled “Never, ever”

          FLAKED AD CLAIM: Congressman Flake unleashed an attack ad narrated by Dr. Cristina V. Beato, a former political appointee in the Bush administration. She was Rich’s supervisor at the time he was Surgeon General and now claims that “[Rich] has issues with anger, with ethics, and with women.”

          I’m Jeff Flake and I approve this message. “There was an angry pounding on the door, in the middle of the night. I’m a single mom. I feared for my kids and for myself. It was Richard Carmona and I was his boss. Carmona is not who he seems. He has issues with anger, with ethics and with women. I have testified to this under oath to Congress. Richard Carmona should never, ever be in the U.S. Senate.”

          FLAKED RATING: 4-flakes = Total Snow Job!

          THE TRUTH:

          These allegations are 100% false and 100% uncorroborated. These allegations were never made or reported to anyone until after Rich blew the whistle on the Bush Administration’s attempts to politicize science when he was Surgeon General. In fact, throughout his Rich’s term, members of Congressman Flake’s party tried to recruit Rich to run for office as a Republican.

          What Congressman Flake does not tell you is that throughout Rich’s term as Surgeon General, local and national Republican Party leaders – including Governor Brewer and Sen. Jon Kyl – tried to recruit Rich to run for Congress and for Governor, offering only praise and professing no concern over any so-called temperament issues.

          What Congressman Flake does not tell you is that these allegations were never made or reported until after Dr. Carmona testified to Congress about the politicization of science by Bush Administration officials in the office of the Surgeon General – which was over a year after he left Washington.

          What Congressman Flake does not tell you is the House Oversight and Investigations committee questioned Dr. Beato’s credibility. While accusing Rich of “not being a team player” while he was Surgeon General, she contradicted herself multiple times in testimony given to congressional investigators and provided absolutely no evidence to back up her claims.

          THE FACTS [Sourced]:

          Republicans Praised, Recruited Carmona to Run for Office. Then-Secretary of State Jan Brewer was among a “small contingent of Republican leaders” who urged Carmona “consider stepping down early and run as a Republican for Congress.” Sen. Jon Kyl also confirmed supporting Carmona, urging him to run for Governor, until Carmona “criticized” and later blew the whistle on the Bush Administration. [AP, 9/10/12]

          HHS Officials: “Beato Was Widely Seen Within The Department As Trying To Advance Conservative Agendas.” In the aftermath of Carmona’s testimony to House Oversight, the New York Times interviewed “more than a half-dozen former top health officials.” The Times reported that, “Dr. Beato was widely seen within the department as trying to advance conservative agendas,” according to the statements of officials they interviewed. [NY Times, 7/12/07]

          Beato Colleague: Beato Has An “Authoritarian” Decision-Making Style That Caused Friction. The Albuquerque Journal reported that some hospital officials criticized Dr. Beato: “I think she’s very polarizing,” Dr. David Bennahum an emeritus UNM physician who chaired UNM’s ethics committee from 1989 to 1996. “She holds strong conservative views in health care, and that can be divisive in a university.” [Albuquerque Journal, 8/21/12]

          Credibility Questioned by Committee Investigators. Rep. Henry Waxman, who oversaw the congressional investigation into HHS, said his committee was aware of Beato’s allegations but could not confirm them. “We interviewed other individuals who knew both of them and reviewed additional information and serious questions were raised about her credibility,” Waxman said in a statement. [Politico, 5/21/12]

          No Complaint Ever Filed, No Corroborating Evidence Ever Produced. According to Politico sources, at the time of the investigation, Beato “did not file a police report or formal complaint against [Carmona], and there was no independent way to corroborate” anything she claimed. [Politico, 5/21/12]

          https://services.myngp.com/ngponlineservices/contribution.aspx?x=zX6dkUMI+7ZSY%2fTsMQ7x9+tKQBVBE1HK6oR1VeH0y4U%3d&pf=%2fw2J6mIjcOomxLfxPKUS8aXCm7XEPbAajoHl1Kix677QhGkjNvO9MOLfY+FQrXtJ&b=838954

          • And there you have it: no police report (was no threat) no pounding on the door in the middle of the night – maybe footsteps on the sidewalk and a wacko imagination.

            And there you have it: credibility questioned aka imagination at work.

            And there you have it: a resume injected with botox aka ladder climber………..?

            Fake Check tally: 4-flakes = total snow job……….. ROTFLMAO@ snow job.

        • Conservative American says:

          A genuinely “Conservative agenda” would be fine with me, but there was nothing “Conservative” about it! George W. Bush wanted to see Flake’s STRIVE Act, or similar legislation, pass Congress! That was where congressional Republicans were much more Conservative than Bush, opposing amnesty legislation. At the same time, Conservative Republicans didn’t want to see illegals coming here and getting free health care, and other benefits, at U. S. taxpayer expense!

          It seems that Cristina Beato, however, went about attempting to curtail health care services in her own, unilateral, typically authoritarian and ill-advised manner rather than allowing Congress to set the terms. She seems to have particularly had it in for Hispanics, which is odd considering that Beato was born in Cuba and didn’t come to the U. S. until she was 14! Perhaps she feels that Cubans are a “superior” people or maybe she just brought a “Fidel Castro” attitude with her!

    • Pascoe Vale says:

      The person posting as ‘Conservative American’ is a fraud and a Democrat plant.

      • Conservative American says:

        Hi ‘ya, Pascoe! How ‘ya doin? Was starting to miss ‘ya! ;-)

        Looks like the ICE agents haven’t gotten you… yet, LOL!

        You and Horst Kraus still hanging out in the buff at Shangri La Ranch?

        Have a real nice day, Pinko! :-)

    • Conservative American says:

      Cristina Beato has had a lot to say about the temperament and character of Dr. Carmona. Let’s hear what Cristina Beato’s professional colleagues have to say about HER temperament and character!

      “I don’t think she’s a bad person, but I think she’s very polarizing,” Dr. David Bennahum said of Beato. Bennahum is an emeritus UNM physician who said he got to know Beato when he chaired UNM’s ethics committee from 1989 to 1996.”

      “Beato has an “authoritarian” decision-making style that caused friction with many faculty members, he said Friday.”

      http://www.unm.edu/news/2012/august/21doctor.html

      “Polarizing”! “Authoritarian!” “…caused FRICTION with MANY faculty members…!”

      Beato’s professional colleague, Dr. David Bennahum, states that it was Beato who CAUSED the friction! Did she CAUSE friction with Dr. Carmona as well? ‘Ya think?

  4. Patiopattie says:

    it appears that the only thing Flake can think of, to express his dismay at losing, is a little character assassination.

      Yeah! Way to go, JPD! :-)

      Man, it sure took a LOT of work and a LOT of searching to finally find the dope on Dr. Cristina Beato! They REALLY scrubbed the internet GOOD! It’s like she doesn’t exist except for Flake’s propaganda and some references to positions she has held! They’re BUSTED CLEAN now though, LOL!

      Someone’s head is going to roll at the Flake campaign for failing to catch that link to the Washington Post story! Clearly, the facts about her pattern of exaggeration and fabrication were NEVER supposed to see the light of day once that ad ran.

      Can you say, “Egg on my face”, Jeff? :-)

  6. Conservative American says:

    :-( JEFF FLAKE IS MANIPULATIVE AND A LIAR! :-(

    Manipulative:

    1 – In October 2006, the Sunlight Foundation, a Washington-based non-profit organization which advocates better transparency in government, reported that Flake’s campaign committee paid his wife $15,750 for fundraising and administrative work during 2005-2006.

    2 – In 2007, Democrat Senate Whip Dick Durbin made multiple attempts to get the DREAM Act illegal alien amnesty passed by Congress. That same year, Jeff Flake co-authored the STRIVE Act which contained, HIDDEN WITHIN IT, word for word, Dick Durbin’s DREAM Act!

    Liar:

    1 – When Jeff Flake first ran for Congres, he pledged to Arizona voters that he would serve only three terms in the House. When confronted with that pledge, upon seeking a fourth term, Flake stated, “I lied!” No one accused Flake of lying. Flake himself stated, “I lied!”

    2 – During his debate with Dr. Richard Carmona, Jeff Flake said that he would not sign the no-tax pledge from Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform. “The only pledge I’d sign is a pledge to sign no more pledges,” Flake said. But Norquist’s group says that Flake ALREADY SIGNED the pledge! Here is a link to Americans for Tax Reform’s list of signers of “The Taxpayer Protection Pledge”. You will see that Jeff Flake is listed as having signed that pledge:

      That’s like saying, “I wish my pig were a horse!” That simply isn’t who Jeff Flake is, azcowpoke! ;-)

      THAT is why so many of we registered Republicans here are very unhappy that the Republican Party is running Jeff Flake for U. S. Senate! With his STRIVE Act, which contained hidden within it the DREAM Act illegal alien amnesty legislation, Flake has shown that he isn’t even in tune with Arizona voters on the major state issue of illegal immigration! Duh! How much more of an Arizona hot button issue could there be! For years Arizona has been taking the brunt of the illegal alien invasion. Flake isn’t even clear on that one!

  8. LEO IN TSN says:

    McFlake cannot campaign on his RINO McRecord, so he puts forth media falsehoods for the gullible. This is a carbon copy of the McAmnesty primary campaign of 2010, in which the silver McSnake spent $23 million on his media attacks, ignoring his own McRecord and lying about his conservative opponent.

    Oh, yes, that’s what McFlake has just done in his McPrimary against a conservative Republican. The tactics never change with this crowd, only the McNames.

    Here is another issue to consider. The National Pro-Life Alliance sent a 10-question Candidate Survey to every candidate for federal office in the country, including AZ. Only three “R” candidates from AZ refused to respond: McFlake, McMcSally and McGosar. Hmmmmm, how ‘bout that? Maybe none of their McViews fit the GOP platform??

    God bless America.

    • I agree Leo. The Hayworth-McCain and the Cardon-Flake contests immediately come to mind. While the McMachine is a lying, vicious, racketering, festering boil on the butt of Arizona politics, you still have to blame the starched-shorts, heel clicking, goosestepping Republican voters in the state. The country club and Hoveround-jockeying mongoloids are the life support for the cancerous, dirty tactics of the McMachine.

      Flake’s media blitz continues to say “Carmona will take his orders from Obama.”

      So Flake is saying he EXPECTS Romney/Ryan to LOSE; that the entire control of Washington rides on Flake’s election. Arizona Republican voters have effectively taken illegal immigration OUT of the race for the Senate seat, and for that reason alone I would vote against THEM. And every GOP-leaning Arizona voter who feels that the PARTY has done a 180 on illegal immigration should do the very same.

      The party has pro-illegal bastards like Jerry Lewis, Bob Worsley, and now even Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, sucking the teat of a stand down, amnesty, and surrender to the plague from Mexico. ALL of this started in March 2011 when nine Republican state senators killed immigration bills at the command of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce.

      Vote AGAINST Steve Pierce in LD 1 for state senate*
      Vote AGAINST Nancy Barto in LD 15 for state senate*
      Vote AGAINST Rich Crandall in LD 16 for state senate*
      Vote AGAINST John McComish in LD 18 for state senate*
      Vote AGAINST Bob Worsley in LD 25 for state senate
      Vote AGAINST Jerry Lewis in LD 26 for state senate
      Vote AGAINST Adam Driggs in LD 28 for state senate*

      * These Republican state senators are incumbents, and in March 2011 they collapsed under direct orders from Glenn Hamer, Cindy McCain, and the Arizona Chamber of Commerce. At the COMMAND of cheap-illegal labor corporations, these senators killed 5 immigration bills without blinking an eye.

      Are YOU going to let the Arizona Chamber of Commerce run our state government? Are YOU going to let Arizona Republican party heel clickers take our state BACKWARDS in the fight against illegal immigration? Stop it NOW!

  9. Carmona and Flake: Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dummer.

  10. Conservative American says:

    The above Flake “Press Release” states:

    “Dr. Cristina Beato: “Dr. Carmona Also Had A Very Difficult Time Having A Female Hispanic Supervisor.”

    Really? Dr. Carmona himself is of Puerto Rican descent! Beato is trying to play the race card and drive Hispanic voters away from Dr. Carmona. But what is Beato’s record with regard to Hispanic people?

    “A 2004 Washington Post article about Beato’s nomination focused on a 1999 decision by UNMH to halt medical care for a 16-year-old Mexican girl who fell into a coma and delivered a baby by Caesarean section.”

    “UNMH tried to send Maribel Miramontes Loya to Mexico for care, but Mexican officials denied permission for the plane to enter Mexican air space. Loya died in an Albuquerque convalescent center in 2000.”

    “Critics at the time alleged that Beato, then-associate dean of clinical affairs at the School of Medicine, played a key role in transferring Loya out of UNMH. Loya’s family filed a lawsuit ending in a settlement that cost state taxpayers $200,000.”

    http://www.unm.edu/news/2012/august/21doctor.html

    But that isn’t the ONLY incident of this kind involving Cristina Beato!

    “In another episode, lawyer Lauro D. Silva said he took a neighbor having kidney failure to the hospital. When they arrived, Silva said, Beato came to the emergency room and told them in Spanish that Rafael Paz did not qualify for care and had to leave “or she would call the police.” After Silva threatened legal action, Beato relented, agreeing to give Paz one dialysis treatment if he signed a form promising never to return. Silva said Paz died in Mexico a few months later.”

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A29549-2004Jun9.html

    Nice work, Dr. Beato! A 16-year-old Hispanic girl is dead! Your actions resulted in a lawsuit which was settled with $200,000 of state taxpayer money! Who is it who has a problem with “Hispanic females”?

  11. Yesterday putting up write-in campaign signs (LD13) a twit announced this blog post. There were 2 comments and 17 votes resulting in a one star rating, get the hint Wilder? Those votes are not democrats rather repubs expressing their disapproval.

    Really there is no other way to say it, Jeffery Lane Flake’s Campaign Communications Director ANDREW WILDER is a complete failure who will have a hard time finding a job………

    Wilder attempting to Re-Do the October 11 blog post……… “Dr. Cristina Beato: “Richard Carmona Should Never, Ever Be in the U.S. Senate”” http://sonoranalliance.com/2012/10/11/dr-cristina-beato-richard-carmona-should-never-ever-be-in-the-u-s-senate/: trying to carry forth Dr. Cristina Beato……. (Facts Don’t Support Richard Carmona’s Claim That Tensions Were Result of Reform http://sonoranalliance.com/2012/10/13/facts-dont-support-richard-carmonas-claim-that-tensions-were-result-of-reform/) ……… just put the last nail in his bosses coffin – with Conservative American representing our dissent as the hammer.

    Flake’s (McMcCain Progressive Machine) campaign bluntly affirms that the GOP reLIES on IGNORANCE. Listen up you morons, We The People are coming after you, even as you ‘Flake’ participate in passing laws against us, to protect you and your pathetic kind from us you complicit smiley punk. You have no respect coming as its earned not bestowed.

    Learn to research people, make it fun – go down that rabbit hole into the maze, make the time commitment and when you come out….. somewhere, you have the facts to confront. Good job Conservative American. And remember, save it with screen shots and pdf copies as they, the politicians are actively sweeping the web more and more.

    This Beato thing is real simple to me: she failed as a mother to protect her children by not calling the police meaning it can be assumed that there actually was no threat. Beato also failed to exercise her right and duty to manage a subordinate, Carmona, by failing to initiate corrective and/or disciplinary measures to a “THREAT” in a timely manner, let alone doing it at all. Again, it can be assumed that there was no perceived threat.

    Everything in this blog post that is negative towards Carmona is SUBJECTIVE after the fact. Example: “• Dr. Cristina Beato: “He Was An Extremely Angry Person. And He Would Walk Out The Door And Put On A Smile. I Have Never Seen Such Dysfunctionality In My Life.”” (How did Beato know Carmona put a smile on his face when he walked out the door?) He’s an administrator, he’s supposed to have a FREAKING SMILE on his face in the face of adversity – and that would be you BEATO.

    The above statement tells all to me (taking into account all her quoted statements in this blog) Beato is deflecting her hang-ups upon Carmona: second Beato doesn’t get it, being an administrator your emotions are not in the mix – check them at the door: third Beato offered no documentation (in giving testimony) such as a journal, diary or ‘personnel records’ to support her comments, feelings, concerns that which is a dysfunctionality trait in and of itself – DO YOUR JOB rather than DOING your resume.

    Beato said…… “‘I Think Any Normal Woman, When Somebody Comes In At Midnight Demanding And Raising Their Voice, Would Feel Threatened,” With Her Two Children Inside, Beato “Refused To Open The Door Because She Was Frightened Of His Behavior.”

    Bottom line BEATO’S LACK OF ACTION AS A MOM AND ADMINISTRATOR while claiming threat, tells the true story – it’s a story by a progressive wacko pimping for a job with a deflated resume.

    BEATO is nothing more than another POLITICAL PROSTITUTE, much like (in my opinion) Bob Branch Arizona LD 13 Chair selling his soul for the House Seat Mitchell will be denied by what appears to be fraud by the AZGOP against the voters by denying them a voice. Just like what happened with Judy Burgess’ appointment against the will of the people – tell me I’m wrong AZGOP, tell We The People where I’m wrong AZGOP?

    BLOWBACK big time!

    :-( JEFF FLAKE FUELS THE NUCLEAR INTERESTS OF… IRAN! :-(

    Rep. Jeff Flake has said that his work as a Mormon missionary in Southern Africa in the early 1980s sparked his interest in foreign affairs. But what the Arizona Republican Senate candidate doesn’t often speak about is what he did after returning to the United States. Between 1990 and 1991, Flake was a registered foreign agent for Rossing Uranium, a company which operates a mine in Namibia that is among the world’s largest suppliers of nuclear fuel.

    So? Big deal! What’s the problem?

    The Rossing mine has come under scrutiny for its financial ties to Iran. While the firm Rio Tinto owns 69 percent of the mine, the Iranian Foreign Investment Co., which the Treasury Department describes as a “wholly owned” subsidiary of the Tehran regime, holds a 15 percent stake. Iran has held its share of the company since the 1970s.

    Oh! Nice, Jeff! Iran is pointing a nuclear dagger at the heart of Israel! I guess that this would be part of your expertise and experience in “foreign affairs”!

    • Congressman Jeff Flake: IMMIGRATES to Comprehensive Economic Sanctions against IRAN
      Posted by JPD on February 11, 2012 at 11:00am

      REFORM, FLIP-FLOP and/or the McCain ELECTION TIME DASH: Congressman Jeff Flake this past November 2011 did it again by sponsoring two House Resolutions that were submitted a week apart:

      H.R. 3439; To require the President to impose sanctions on foreign financial institutions that conduct transactions with the Central Bank of Iran if the President determines that the Central Bank of Iran has engaged in certain transactions relating to the proliferation of chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons or support for acts of international terrorism.

      H.R. 3508; Imposition of Economic Sanctions On Foreign Financial Institutions That Conduct Transactions With The Central Bank of Iran.

      Both Resolutions sponsored (written) by Congressman Jeff Flake impose Comprehensive Economic Sanctions on IRAN that he vehemently opposed in June 2010 by voting NAY on H.R. 2194. Take notice that Flake was ONE of TWO Republicans / ONE of EIGHT total that voted NAY on 2194 – the bill passed 408-8.

      Change of heart or ELECTION TIME FLIP-FLOP, why such a reversal, a REFORM concerning IRAN when he claims to be immovable, rock solid and principled? Flake has voted against Iran sanctions going back to 2007 and beyond. So why would Congressman Flake……………. http://phoenixteaparty.ning.com/profiles/blogs/congressman-jeff-flake-immigrates-to-comprehensive-economic

    Jeff Flake H.R. 5326 VOTES for FUNDING DOJ Lawsuits Against States Trying to Protect Their Borders
    http://patriothq.com/2012/06/02/jeff-flake-h-r-5326-votes-for-funding-doj-law-suites-against-states-trying-to-protect-their-borders

    Getting ready to blow the lid off of LD 13, tired of Republican Party Punks who have subverted my party.

    • Conservative American says:

      That’s the correct phrase, JPD, “subverted my party”!

      Jeff Flake has generally been acting in accordance with the LDS Church position on illegal aliens and illegal immigration. That is not surprising since Flake is Mormon!

      Shortly before the Pearce recall election, the LDS Church issued it’s “new” position on illegal aliens and illegal immigration. That position was articulated by Jerry Lewis who replaced Pearce. The demographic which elected Lewis was not “Republicans” but rather Mormons who happened to be registered as Republicans. Now the LDS Church wants to complete the coup by getting Flake elected to the U. S. Senate.

      Mitt Romney is Mormon and has stated that if elected he would not act to rescind the benefits bestowed on illegals by Obama’s executive order implementation of the DREAM Act. However, Romney knows that the implementation of Obama’s order is being contested in court and legal scholars are weighing in with opinions. In addition, Congress will likely have the final say. The LDS Church knows that and that is part of why they want to see Flake in the U. S. Senate!

      Mormons and the LDS Church want cheap labor for their business enterprises here and for agricultural and other enterprises in Utah. There are dollar signs and profit margins behind their claims of compassionate concerns for illegals! Some illegals have converted to Mormonism and then the LDS Church may also reap a tithe from them.

      The LDS agenda doesn’t entirely define Flake but it is certainly part of what defines him!

  15. The testimony from Beato is VERY damning. Kudos to the Flake team for pulling out the same ammo the McCain crowd often reserves for the primaries.

    NOTE TO SA
    ___________

    All the blog spam above from FAKE ‘Conservative American’ deserves to be deleted. There is something really wrong with a person that acts like this–internet or not.

    • Conservative American says:

      LOL! Do you mean my comments, Jane 001, or the comments of “Pascoe Vale” who calls me a fraud, a phony and a Democrat plant? ;-)

      Yeah, Jane 001. Of course, character assassination is alway repugnant. The only reason people go there is when they feel that they can’t win on the facts and on the issues. The problem that Flake faces is that Carmona is so superior in both character and accomplishments. Flake is seeking to take Carmona down a peg in people’s eyes. Unfortunately for the Flake campaign, they picked the wrong person to do that in Dr. Cristina Beato!

      Think about what Flake is facing in Dr. Richard Carmona!

      Dr. Carmona enlisted in the military. Jeff Flake never served.

      Dr. Carmona went to war and was in combat. Flake was busy going on Mormon missions and lobbying.

      Dr. Carmona was awarded two Bronze Stars. Flake was booted off the House Judiciary Committee by fellow Republicans for “bad behavior”.

      Dr. Carmona is an M. D. and was Surgeon General of The United States. Jeff Flake has been a career politician who broke his pledge to serve only three terms in the House.

      Dr. Carmona was a SWAT Team leader in civilian life. Jeff Flake led the effort to get the DREAM Act illegal alien amnesty passed by Congress by hiding it within his STRIVE Act.

      I mean, what can Flake come up with to compete with THIS?

      “While continuing his medical career, Rich’s call to service led him to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department in which he has served for more than 25 years as a deputy sheriff, detective, department surgeon and SWAT Team Leader. In 1992, he rappelled from a helicopter to rescue a paramedic stranded on a mountainside when their medevac helicopter crashed during a snow storm, inspiring a made-for-TV movie. In the course of his service, Rich received the National Top Cop Award and was named the National SWAT Officer of the Year.”

      Jeff Flake is simply outclassed by Dr. Richard Carmona in every way!

    • I assume you have read everything here posted by Conservative American, JPD, myself, and others. Denial – denial – denial is your reaction. The only reason you call it “spam” is because you are a McCain Machine heel clicker. You even acknowledge that Flake’s tactics are McCain’s tactics.

      I also assume you live quite comfortably-thank-you is some upscale community, free of gunfire, graffiti, blight, crime, discarded Bud Light cans and bottles, Hip-hop blasted from every open car door, and assorted piles of Hispanic feces dropped where convenient. I’m so happy for you. You are representative of GOP hacks joined at the hip with treasonous pro-illegal pro-amnesty racketeers like Jeff Flake, John McCain, Jon Kyl, Jerry Lewis, Bob Worsley, Bill Montgomery, and so on.

      You just can’t accept that Jeff Flake is going down, so you want SA to resort to censorship. When you and your ilk removed illegal immigration from the Senate seat race by spreading them for Jeff Flake, you commited suicide. So stock the end table next to your chair with designer RXs and booze for November 7th. You’re going to need them.

      • Conservative American says:

        ROFL! Don’t hold back now, zoo. Tell us how you REALLY feel, LOL! ;-)

        Brother, you can sure put some words together when you are out to take coup! :-)

        • CA, some would jump to refer to me as “colorfully racist.” But I stand behind everything I described about invaded neighborhoods above. When I see a pro-illegal immigration detractor, it is easily attributed to race, profit, political whores, family, ignorance, or sexual intercourse.

          But illegal immigration indifference always comes from those removed-from-it-all. Always. And the “I.I.I.” crowd PUT Jeff Flake in this race; and that should be his epitaph.

          My “I.I.I.” radar went off because “Jane 001″ didn’t dispute a word you said, she just wants you out of her sight. Out of sight, out of mind.

            I don’t think you’re a racist. I think you are rightfully pissed off about the situation with illegal aliens and illegal immigration. Both Republican and Democrat administrations have promoted that for decades. It’s part of the “One World”, “New World Order” agenda and there are both R’s and D’s pushing that garbage! I’m pissed off about it too but I’m not racist either.

  16. Jane 001, so you are advocating supression of free speech by demanding CA’s comments be “deleted”.

    I assume you are a female by your display name but more so by your objection that is more emotional, than objective.

    I also assume you you are voting for Flake as he also advocates, votes, submits, writes and lobbies for suppression of free speech.

    You and your kind are the reason for the pending death of the United States of America.

    • Conservative American says:

      Actually, JPD, now that an abundance of hard evidence has been presented that Cristina Beato has no credibility whatsoever, it would be disingenuous for SA to host more Flake attack ads by Beato. It’s fine to allow political pieces to be posted but not when you know that they are character assassination pieces with accusations by someone who habitually fabricates to the extent of claiming to have a degree from an educational institution which doesn’t even offer that degree!

      “Under educational experience, Beato lists: “successful candidate, occupational medicine, MPH (master’s of public health), University of Wisconsin, 1995.” A university spokeswoman said the school does not offer such a degree.”

      In academic positions, being caught misrepresenting your academic credentials usually results in immediate dismissal. In industry, such a misrepresentation on a resume would result in not being hired. That is part of why Cristina Beato, while she served as Acting Assistant Secretary for Health, was never confirmed to a permanent position as Assistant Secretary for Health! There were, quite simply, too many “exaggerations” and statements which were “factually in error” in her resume!

      Knowing the facts about Cristina Beato, SA should now refrain from further propagating accusations by someone who lacks credibility to the extent that she couldn’t get confirmed to a permanent position in government!

      It says a lot about the character of Jeff Flake that he would call upon someone who couldn’t get confirmed to a position in government, because of a “padded” resume, to help him get elected to a position in government! This amounts to calling upon the discredited to vouch for you!

      If Flake gets elected, perhaps he’ll seek to create a position in government for Cristina Beato. Reviewing resumes of applicants for government positions would be a good job for her, since she knows the ins and outs of padding resumes so well!

  17. CA, character assassination’s are ok if they are backed up with hard facts. And I don’t care if they are directed at those I support. It’s the LIER’s that need to be removed from serving We The People, where Flake qualifies as one.

    Yes academia, second and post are rabbi on credentials.

    Dr.Cristina Beato has been beat at her own game, using her rules. One good thing for her resume is she can add POLITICAL PROSTITUTE. But she may decide that PIMP is more acceptable in the only field she has left to gain employment in. Well one of two!

    The difference between R&D’s is D’s say what they are and are going to do and do it. R’s tell you what they are and what they are going to do only to be proven as liars. Now there are some good honest R’s, salt of the earth type……. ……. that’s my party!

    • Conservative American says:

      From my perspective, JPD, if statements about someone are credible then that doesn’t constitute “character assassination”. To me, it’s the fact that Cristina Beato in not credible, and that there is testimony that she herself posesses the very qualities she is attributing to Dr. Comona, which makes her statements “character assassination”.

      “I don’t think she’s a bad person, but I think she’s very polarizing,” Dr. David Bennahum said of Beato. Bennahum is an emeritus UNM physician who said he got to know Beato when he chaired UNM’s ethics committee from 1989 to 1996.”

      “Beato has an “authoritarian” decision-making style that caused friction with many faculty members, he said Friday.”

      http://www.unm.edu/news/2012/august/21doctor.html

      Those are precisely the flaws which Cristina Beato seeks to attribute to Dr. Carmona, LOL!

      The Republican Party has been infiltrated and is being attacked from within. That strategy was formulated by the Communists and lends itself well to a democracy where things are open. To counter that and to be more potent, the Republican Party needs to re-establish it’s branding. It needs to mean something specific when a candidate is running as a Republican. There needs to be discipline within the party and those who don’t get with the program need to ship out! If they don’t ship out, then the Republican Party needs to ship them out! You can’t have a potent and effective political party if each candidate and office holder is doing their own thing. That’s anarchy!

      Jeff Flake was SO at odds with where House Republicans were going that the Republican House leadership actually went so far as to kick Flake off of the Judiciary Committee! When Flake was promoting his STRIVE Act illegal alien amnesty legislation, one of the principal opponents of the STRIVE Act was Republican Congressman Brian Bilbray! Flake’s fellow Republicans saw to it that Flake’s STRIVE Act never even came up for a vote!

      Behavior like that should have resulted in Flake being disowned by Republicans and he should have had to run as an independent if he wanted to seek office. He most certainly should not be rewarded for that behavior by being “promoted” to Republican U. S. Senator from Arizona!
