Skip to comments.Townhall Downfall: Astroturf Doctors? (Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee townhall MD is a fraud)
Posted on 08/13/2009 6:13:15 PM PDT by GVnana
You may have seen yesterdays video of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) speaking on her cell phone while a cancer survivor spoke to her about health care reform. Well now comes news that the pro-Obamacare voices in the crowd were not entirely legitimate.
A primary care physician identified as Dr. Roxana Meyer stood up and praised the Presidents health care plan for overhauling a broken system. Meyer said: I dont know what there is in the bill that creates such panic. The Congresswoman asked the crowd to give her a round of applause for being a doctor, hugged her and then asked How long have you been practicing? to which Dr. Meyer answered Four years, which was followed by more applause and a gushing grin on the face of Dr. Meyer. The problem? Roxana Meyer is not a doctor, but rather an Obama campaign delegate.

"So Patterico went to the source, e-mailing the LinkedIn Ms. Mayer. Hilarity ensued. By the time the exchange ended, "poor" Ms. Mayer was in full moonbat mode:
1) Are you the person who attended Jackson Lees town hall meeting?
2) Are you a doctor?
3) If not, why did you claim to be one?
4) Were you a Texas delegate for Obama?
5) Why did you go to the town hall meeting?
6) Who encouraged you to go?
7) Did Sheila Jackson Lees husband have anything to do with your going?
I suspect you dont need me to answer the first four
but Ill say for what its worth, I went to get a question answered for myself and two other people close to me who are doctors. Too bad she didnt answer it. I also went to lend support to the reform effort. Its easier to be against something especially since anger is such a great motivator."
"Patterico Busts TX Grad Student/Obama Delegate Posing As Doctor; Chron Doesn't Credit, Still Disclosure-Challenged
Ms. Mayer, who claimed to be a doctor when she spoke at a town hall meeting held by Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
... At first, the Houston Chronicle took Mayer's word that she is a doctor, failed to investigate her bona fides"
"Obama camp plants fake doc, Che fan at Jackson Lee forum
One supporter, Dr. Roxana Mayer, a physician who does not live in Jackson Lees district, praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system.
I dont know what there is in the bill that creates such panic, she said.
In this video, Mayer claims to be a general practitioner, eliciting applause and even a hug from Queen Sheila:
.... Roxana Mayer is, like, totally not a doctor.
... her name does not appear in the database maintained by the Texas Medical Board, which licenses all doctors in Texas.
But she is an Obama campaign volunteer."
Haven’t you heard? the video was doctored ....that woman is arrogant and stupid.
IMHO, these two miserable SOB’s should be put in jail for fraud!!!!!!!!!!
DNC Death Panel: "The "doctor" will kill you now."
Lotsa similarly qualified medical staff waiting to practise under the new healthcare bill.
In most states, it is a CRIME to claim to be a practicing physician.
Any TX Freepers want to file a complaint with state licensure board?
I forgot about Heath in the nurses outfit. That is a great still that should be used A LOT!
Maybe this is the type of doctor ObamaCare will bring after they drive off all our current ones.
College Posers Gone Wild!
.....sign up for it youself.
I was just looking online for more info on impersonating a physician in Texas. Hope she gets a fine at least. Someone go for it - is there a texas ping list?
they are so arrogant, they don’t even care when they are caught.
i wish the msm would point this out. i wonder if we will here a montage on Rush of the msm calling this woman a “plant”, manufactured support, etc. ?
Just when I think I’ve seen it all from these ‘tards, they go and surprise me again.
did a google on this chick for news articles, couldn’t find any msm articles on her lie. only found a result for FR, and a couple of blogs.
