[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 examhe asked me how I was feeling today and I said Im from California and Im not used to the cold, so he handed me a note.
Another woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said they were handing out excuses like they were leaflets.
I asked if they were handing out doctors excuses and a guy said yes and asked me if I needed one, she said. When I told them I needed one for February 16 and 17th, he wondered if I wanted to come back here for the protests next week.
What happened next?
I said, sure, and I received a doctors note for the 16th through the 25th of February, without a medical exam.
The notes read

WI license number
Based on an examination of the signature and medical license number provided, one of the men handing out these notes was purporting to be James H Shropshire MD, a Clinical Associate Professor at the University Wisconsin Madison.
At this time, MacIver News Service is attempting to contact Dr. Shropshire to see if indeed he was the one handing out the notes on the Capitol Square.
This is how they get medical marijuana cards in Kalipornia
Take this fraud “doctor”’s license away. He did NOT examine these people.
Can I get a note? Just reading about this is making me sick...
That right there is fraud.
if one of their students did the same they would be busted. ponder the corruption. spiritual and financial.
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly referred to as RICO Act or RICO) is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. RICO was enacted by section 901(a) of the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970 (Pub.L. 91-452, 84 Stat. 922, enacted October 15, 1970). RICO is codified as Chapter 96 of Title 18 of the United States Code, 18 U.S.C. § 19611968. While its intended use was to prosecute the Mafia as well as others who were actively engaged in organized crime, its application has been more widespread.
It has been speculated that the name and acronym were selected in a sly reference to the movie Little Caesar, which featured a notorious gangster named Rico. The original drafter of the bill, G. Robert Blakey, refused to confirm or deny this. G. Robert Blakey remains an expert on RICO; his former student Michael Goldsmith also gained a reputation as one of the nation’s leading RICO experts.
It's not enough to take his license away. He must do time for FRAUD.
I think we’re going to see more and more “fake doctors” with ObamaCare. These union thugs are probably our first batch of “fake doctors”.
There also may be a Bernard F. Micke involved. It appears that the doctors involved my be on the Wisconsin University medical staff.
This big time fraud.
To Whom It May Concern:
Please excuse Sha’Leatha Jones from work for this week. She has developed a psychosomatic condition due to her extreme fear of actually having to pay more of her share for insurance and retirement. She also must provide cover for her missing state representative.

In 2009 this doctor paid 141.50 for his first license to practice. I honestly believe the guy is nothing but a medical student. he is handing this out with no examination. Lets say athe teachers turn these and they live a distance from Monona Wisconsin. The school superintendent will realize these are nothing but sick out medical excuse generated. Wonder which Union will be paying for the medical doctors fees. This I believe is actual violation of the state of Wisconsin. The doctor is using a generic form - and signing it out, what his signature is there and he just has them signed with no diagnosis. gee anybody can take them home or to a school and give them to students.
This will blow up in this doctors face.
Here is his email you could just ask him.
These communist quacks should be arrested for fraud, amongst other charges.

The Governor should go on the air, massively with this story and say:
IS THIS WHO WE WANT TO BE TEACHING OUR CHILDREN ?
THESE TEACHERS MUST ALL BE FIRED PERMAENTLY. FIND A NEW LINE OF WORK AS YOU TRY TO BUILD MORAL CHARACTER IN YOURSELF. BUT YOU WILL NOT WORK AS A TEACHER IN WI AGAIN.

Dear School District,
Please excuse Johnny from teaching. He was
protesting sick. My mother My doctor Dr. James Shropshire
EXCELLENT! Thanks for the pics.
Saved to my hard drive for ammunition.
I wonder what other physicians think about this black mark being placed on their profession.
This nation is reprehensibly divided. Is it the second Civil War?
And the OBGYN Dr. Dill Doe.
The rest of the media?
This bill will get passed here and the fallout is going to be very, very bad—for the libtards, I mean. Even the fence sitting “Independents” here can't help but see what those pathetic commies are up to.
what school does that patient teach at? should be easy to find via google
on the other hand though why would they take a pic of it and post it for the world to see?
LOL! You nailed it. That’s the future of healthcare in America right there. Along with these “fake doctors” passing out “sick” notes to the cowardly union thugs in Wisconsin.
I doubt that these are real doctors, but that doesn't make this any less reprehensible. The teachers obviously don't know or care. Lying seems to come naturally to these government school teachers.
Do any of the parents care? Not if free babysitting is provided.

Anyone actually doing this should have his/her license revoked.
And the “teachers” terminated . . for cause.
” These communist quacks should be arrested for fraud, amongst other charges. “
Two threads, now, about this topic, and virtually every poster/commentor agrees that the Doctors need to be prosecuted and deprived of their licenses -
But what about the *teachers* - the ones who are actually benefitting financially from the commission of fraud — when mentioned at all, the consensus here seems to be that they should be ‘dismissed’.. What makes them ‘special’ and exempt from the statutes governing fraudulent procurement of Government funds??
Dismissed, *hell*!!! Any teacher, or other government employe, who presents fraudlent documents in an attempt to qualify for ‘sick time’ or ‘sick pay’ should be immediately arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law....
Same for Barry & his fake?
Have you all noticed he lack and shortage of American flags in the “union” protest groups??? Yes, they and POTUS Obama are good little communist America haters!!! You best wake up America, POTUS Obama and labor union goons mean the nation of America no good whatsoever!!!

This dude belongs in the “Stupid Crooks” book. I almost wish it was a bit more under the radar for a while, so these dorks wouldn’t be wised up enough, and would actually be caught turning the notes in to The Man.
