The one named permanent A list celebrity is backing her long time protégé/money maker in his bid for political office. Both agree there is money to be made.
The fact that the permanent A++ lister has not said anything about her two celebrity employees and their comments is essentially a show of support for what they said.
After bailing him out of what should have been a firing offense five years ago, this university said enough is enough and said they would fire this celebrity doctor. If that happened, whatever credibility he had, would be gone.
