(Washington, DC) — Congresswoman Shelley Berkley says she should have fully disclosed her husband’s ties to a kidney care program at University Medical Center. Last week, the “New York Times” reported UMC sought help from Berkley to keep the kidney unit open. Berkley’s husband’s medical practice had a contract for kidney services at the hospital. Berkley tells the “Review-Journal” she should have made sure the link was made “crystal clear” to the public.
