Is Rand Paul a real doctor?

Libertarian Rand Paul, the eye doctor turned Republican Senate candidate in Kentucky, may not be a “board-certified” ophthalmologist, as he reportedly claimed. Paul’s certification comes from a board he incorporated and heads, but he hasn’t been certified by an organization recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties for five years. When reporters asked Paul to explain, he said, “What does this have to do with our election?” He subsequently released a statement saying he had a certification from the main medical board until 2005, but let it lapse to protest a decision to make doctors get recertified every 10 years.
