Dao, who went to medical school in Vietnam in the 1970s before moving to the U.S., was working as a pulmonologist in Elizabethtown when he was arrested in 2003 and eventually convicted of drug-related offenses after an undercover investigation, according to documents filed with the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure last June. The documents allege that he was involved in fraudulent prescriptions for controlled substances and was sexually involved with a patient who used to work for his practice and assisted police in building a case against him.

Dao was convicted of multiple felony counts of obtaining drugs by fraud or deceit in November 2004 and was placed on five years of supervised probation in January 2005. He surrendered his medical license the next month.

The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure permitted Dao to resume practicing medicine in 2015 under certain conditions.

Wow, that didn’t take long to start a smear campaign against the victim of this attrocity – a currently practicing doctor who lost his license 10 years ago but had it reinstated since. This article “doxxed” the doctor, even showing a picture of his house, in an attempt to discredit the victim, to try to justify the actions of United Airlines, which wouldn’t have known about the passenger’s history from 10 years ago.

Makes you wonder why the author of this article chose to go after the victim?
