- Brian Ross, "Are Honors for Physicians the New Political Diploma Mill? Doctor Named 'Physician of the Year' .. For a Fee," ABC News, April 5, 2005: "But to receive the award in person at a special two-day workshop in Washington last month, [Dr. Rudolph] Mueller found out that he would have to make a $1,250 contribution to the National Republican Congressional Committee. It was a disturbing discovery, he said. ... To see what the award process was all about, Mueller sent in his $1,250 contribution and ABC News paid for his travel to Washington for the scheduled events March 14-15, which included a tax-reform workshop as well as appearances by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, and President Bush. ... Mueller soon found he was not the only winner. There were hundreds of Physicians of the Year present, many of whom found the criteria for being selected equally as opaque."
