In recent weeks, John Fetterman, the Democrat running for Senate in Pennsylvania, has been dogged by questions about his health.
Fetterman had a stroke in the spring and still has trouble communicating directly with people.
He did an interview with NBC News last week that was a disaster because it really highlighted his problem for people for the first time.
Now he has released a noted from his doctor saying that his health is fine and that he is OK to serve in the Senate.
The problem is that the good doctor is also one of Fetterman’s donors.
There’s a Slight Problem With the Doctor Who ‘Cleared’ Fetterman’s Health
On Tuesday evening, John Fetterman’s campaign released a doctor’s letter vouching for the Democrat nominee’s fitness to serve in the United States Senate. According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, “John Fetterman’s primary care physician said he continues to recover well from his stroke after an examination Friday, saying the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate “has no work restrictions and can work full duty in public office.”
Fetterman’s doctor, Clifford Chen, also stated in his letter that Fetterman “spoke intelligently without cognitive deficits” and “his communication is significantly improved compared to his first visit, assisted by speech therapy, which he has attended on a regular basis since the stroke.”
There’s just one problem: Dr. Clifford Chen, the medical expert seeking to dispel swirling discussions about Fetterman’s stroke recovery not progressing far or fast enough to enable him to serve a six-year term has — in fact — donated to Fetterman’s U.S. Senate campaign in addition to a slew of other Democrat candidates.
Isn’t this a conflict of interests?
Today, John Fetterman released a doctor’s note claiming he “can work full duty in public office."
The doctor has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats, including Fetterman.https://t.co/g45SewCD5V

If Fetterman was a Republican, the media would make a big deal out of this.
He should release all of his medical records.
