Remember Dr. Yolanda Huet-Vaughn??: Local Media seems to forget.

I was watching the news last night when I saw a piece about a group of local doctors being trotted out by the democrats to says they will take less money to see everyone covered. Aw...isn't that sweet? know Utopian. Here is a link to the story.

Then I noticed a strangely familiar face at the podium..........Dr. Yolanda Huet-Vaugh. The Deserter. The woman who in 1991 was court marshaled for deserting. The convicted criminal who spent 8 months of a 2 and 1/2 year sentence in the jail for refusing to report for duty, shirking hazardous duty, in the first Gulf War. The same Captain Yolanda Huet-Vaughn who took all the benefits of being a peace time Army Reserve Doctor but when her country and President called her to support those defending us and help injured soldiers she refused to go. That Dr. Yolanda Huet-Vaughn. The case was national news back in 1991 why am I the only one who remembers? Why wouldn't a socialist like Yolanda Huet-Vaughn support a government run health care system? It has been her dream. She in fact, has an absolute right to this opinion. It is still (barely) a free country. She has kept a fairly low profile since serving some time in Leavenworth, getting her medical license reinstated, paying her $5000 fine to the KS board of healing arts.........but lest we forget?

The real question is why........with her past wouldn't the local news organizations make mention of this little tidbit? Isn't her history as a war protester and political activist important to the story? Doesn't it color her credibility as someone with an agenda? Or do they just want us watching to assume that this is a group of non descript do good doctors who feel so strongly about public health care that they just had to speak up?????

The press sucks for not calling this out and they are lame.
