Witness for the Prosecution
During the period 2004-2005 I was a psychotherapy out-patient with the D.C. Department of Mental Health (Spring Road Clinic) under the care of Israella Bash, Ph.D. Dr. Bash is a forensic psychologist who qualifies as an expert in court proceedings. Dr. Bash is the co-author of "The Determination of Malingering," Annals of the N.Y. Academy of Sciences, 347(1): 86-99, June 1980.
It was Dr. Bash's professional opinion that I was engaged in malingering while I was her patient and that I was fully employable. Perhaps the U.S. Attorney would like to call Dr. Bash as a witness for the prosecution for the crime of defrauding the U.S. Social Security Administration -- which I appear to be engaged in.
