Welcome to the party, pal
With this post, I welcome fellow University of Chicago alum Dr. David Kessler, MD JD, to the ongoing University of California scandals. Dr. Kessler was recently fired as Dean of the UCSF school of medicine. According to this story, Dr. Kessler's firing was preceded by his noting, and documenting, allegations of financial improprieties on the part of the University. He also apparently alleged a coverup regarding those financial improprieties.
When he was fired, according to the linked article, "Kessler said he was surprised." Well he might have been. Though I happen to know, through this blog, of many others who've been forced out of the University of California after uncovering various "improprieties," many of those people never go public. Kessler probably didn't know in advance just what kind of organization he was dealing with. He should have read this blog.
To his credit, Kessler has now gone public with his complaints, and he's perhaps saved other naive University of California recruits from surprise similar to the one he had. So, David Kessler, I salute you. Welcome to the party, pal.
