Statement From Arthur Lawrence, Former HHS Colleague of Dr. Cristina Beato
From Jeff Flake for U.S. Senate:
PHOENIX – The Flake campaign today released a statement from Arthur Lawrence, a 37-year career veteran of HHS, who served as a Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health under both Democratic and Republican administrations, regarding Dr. Cristina Beato:
On Thursday, the Flake campaign began airing an ad statewide on broadcast and cable featuring the personal testimony of Dr. Cristina Beato, who served as Acting Assistant Secretary of Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services from 2003 to 2005. Dr. Beato recounts the night that Dr. Carmona angrily slammed on her door in the middle of the night in a rage to continue an argument that he started earlier that day.
A Spanish-language version of the ad is airing on Telemundo and Univision. Click this link to view the Spanish version: http://youtu.be/asPwBdD4hxU.
Dr. Carmona has responded to Dr. Beato by attacking her, refusing to fully address questions about the incidents that Beato testified about. Carmona’s sit down interview with KPNX-TV’s Brahm Resnik on Thursday illustrates Carmona’s failure to substantively address the allegations made by Beato and other former colleagues about his confrontational behavior: http://www.azcentral.com/video/#/Carmona+on+accuser%3A+%22She+lied%22/1895144899001
