Wouldnt it be interesting if Wulsin had to hire Black as her lawyer when she gets called to Columbus for the numerous ethics violations she's committed over the past few years?

Oh wait. This is the enquirer and shes a democrat, so we don't talk about that kinda stuff around here! :-x

I believe that endorsements should come after the primary. I'm glad that the Democrat Party is staying neutral at this time.

Good for her. She seems poised to take down Jean.... and Black (a former Republican) needs to stop trying to drag Wulsin's name through the mud.

What?! The Enquirer is notorious for being one of the most Republican-slanted papers in the country! You've got to be kidding me. Did you forget who the Enquirer endorsed?! Schmidt!

On November 3, 2006, the Boston-area National Council Against Health Fraud filed a complaint against Dr. Wulsin's license with the State Medical Board of Ohio. The complaint pertains to Dr. Wulsin's involvement with unethical human subject experiments being conducted on African AIDS patients by the Heimlich Institute. It appears the case is open and under investigation.

In a recent flier, Steve Black made this a campaign issue. That document and related materials are available here: http://tinyurl.com/2d6p6n

By the way, the vice president of the Heimlich Institute is Phil Heimlich.

What's the purpose of a primary if all these Dems rush ahead and support one person already? Fact is, Victoria Wulsin is a loser over and over again. She's been running since 2005 and has never won. All this fanfare, but she will lose to Jean Schmidt again in November. Wulsin is a rich dilletante who enjoys spending her husband's millions.

hey what is wrong with SB..maybe if you attended some of the debates you would learn first hand why SB changed from a Republican to a Democrat.

Personally, we accept his public reasoning of his rationale for the change.

Endorsements may sound nice, but they are soooooooooo old fashioned, huh>?

If we listened to all those blathering blow dried talking heads, we would have annointed Hillary months ago and the same for Rudy....Rudy who?

It is a crying shame that we cannot have a true same day national primary..that would be too simple, huh?

It would allow all of us to truly choose our next Prez.

SB..we admire your honesty. Way!

We can all understand why the 'black mole' would want to be a Democrat !

What we can't understand is why the 'flip-flopper" would ever want to be a wRong wingnut whacko !

PATHETIC 'family values' !

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE, for a real, DEMOCRAT 2008 !

You people are pathetic.

1) Wulsin was fired for disagreeing with the Heimlich Institute. She was fired the day after she submitted a draft. That Black is making this a campaign issue is disgusting and he should be ashamed. He may have left the Republican party behind but he brought the swift-boat tactics with him.

2) Vic doesn't have millions and neither does her husband (though her father in-law might). Either way, Vic has only spent 20K of her own money on her campaigns. Period. Every other dollar has come from people or organizations that have supported her.

Victoria Wulsin is clearly the best candidate in the 2nd district. People can post anonymous smears about her on the internet all they want, but it won't change that fact.

Dr. Wulsin was paid $10,000/month to quietly write a private fundraising prospectus for the Heimlich experiments. She was being paid via Dr. Henry Heimlich's private account at Johnson Investments. Contrary to her current story, she was planning to supervise the Africa experiments. Then word leaked out, she started getting calls from reporters, and had to get out fast. She then concocted the story that she was fired.

Protest as loudly as you wish, in bold type or regular case, but there's one hurdle Wulsin can't get over. She failed to report the illicit human experiments to oversight authorities. Mr. Weiser, if the Enquirer ever gets around to reporting the story, your reporter may wish to ask her why she chose not to do so.

Wulsin is now endorsed by the same people who have lost the congressional district over and over again for whole lot of years. That's just great.

"She then concocted the story that she was fired."

Take off the tinfoil. Wulsin is a lot of things but sly, sneaky, and conniving she is certainly not. At any rate, why would she have "concocted" a story at that time? She was not a public figure and, at that time, had no aspirations of being one. Nobody knew or cared who Victoria Wulsin was so why would she be covering her tracks?

Go outside and get some sunshine. Or better yet, get some medication for your paranoia.

Oh, and just to address this before you bring it up, the CIA was not involved with 9/11 no matter what your internet sites say.

Charles Sanders endorsed her? That's news to me.

How credible is the National Council Against Health Fraud and those who run it?

http://www.quackpotwatch.org/opinionpieces/wisconsin_legislature.htm

"Much of the attention surrounds the state’s expert witness, Dr. Robert Baratz. Baratz runs the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), a non-profit organization based near Boston, Massachusetts. However, many individuals have questioned his professional credibility. He has been accused of padding his resume as an expert in alternative medicine so that he can collect fees for testifying before licensing and review boards. To date, Baratz has received $48,806 in state funds for his services. According to Christopher Klein, DRL Executive Assistant, Baratz has dropped off an additional stack of invoices to cover his fees for this appearance. However, it is unclear as to what further payments Baratz will receive from the state.

According to the NCAHF’s 2001 tax return, the non-profit organization reported just $17,967 in contributions, including $13,000 from one individual. “No matter how big or grand it tries to appear on paper, this organization is hardly a major player in the medical field,” Albers said."

Wulsin is clean. Get over yourself.

For Black to bring this up is absolutely disgusting and says a lot about his character.

Do you want more about Baratz?

http://groups.google.com/group/sci.med.dentistry/browse_thread/thread/e0e0c84e110be73c

"To allege that there is no mercury in mercury amalgam as Dr. Baratz
has done in his sworn testimony before the Florida Dental Board is
either a reflection of ignorance, or intent to deceive."

There is much more. A quick Google search on the guy reveals a wealth of information about his credentials...including a $1.3 million lawsuit.

HE is the quack, not Wulsin.

The swiftboating has started and the candidate hasn't even got out of the gate.
Mudslinging Cincinnati style.
I would like to see the accusors put their real names out their but I guess fear of slander is a little too much for the cowards.

The complaint against Dr. Wulsin's license is now in the hands of the State Medical Board of Ohio. It will be interesting to see how that organization responds to the allegations.

Given the previous coverage of the Heimlich Institute's 25-year history of unethical human subjects experiments, perhaps the media will also be taking a closer look at Dr. Wulsin's participation.

Interested parties may wish to visit the CIRCARE bioethics website, which thoroughly documents the Heimlich history: http://tinyurl.com/2ap87w

Wacky Wulsin has mere months left in her political career before Jean Schmidt crushes her. Enjoy the Enquirer limelight until then, Vicky.
