It seems that Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul’s rogue ophthalmology certification outfit, the National Board of Ophthalmology, is still recertifying doctors even though the group has virtually no public footprint.
Ben Smith at Politico reports on the group Dr. Paul founded to protest changes in the national American Board of Ophthalmology’s certification policies:
For all Paul’s passion, his National Board remains something like the Libertarian Party of ophthalmology. Registered in Kentucky and governed by Paul and two family members, it continues - Paul spokesman Jesse Benton said - to run a formal, confidential recertification process for ABOP dissidents that is much like that of ABO itself. The group has no website and no public presence, but it most recently recertified a doctor just two weeks ago, Benton said.
