Read this and ponder the implications.
The chief lobbyist for the Medical Association of Georgia has filed claims alleging that she was fired because she wouldn’t go along with a cover-up of wrongdoing within the organization.
Kathy Browning, who helped lead the association’s successful civil justice reform campaign during this year’s Legislature, said the cover-up involved not disclosing to the association’s membership an alleged embezzlement of more than $135,000. Most of the money, which came from physician donations, was to be used for the group’s tort reform lobbying campaign, she said.
Now, here’s my question. The subheading says “Suit: Stolen Funds Used for Tort Campaign”. But, if you read the article, it seems to suggest (at least to me and it is early) that money that should have gone to the Tort Reform battle was misappropriated.
