1. Michael Badnarik Has Heart Attack I regret to inform you that my personal friend, arch patriot, Constitution scholar, 2004 Presidential candidate and most recently President of the 2009 Continental Congress had a heart attack on Tuesday, December 22. Michael was unconscious and his condition was diagnosed as serious.
At the time of the heart attack, Michael was in Madison, Wisconsin attending a hearing regarding a raw milk case. After the hearing he got in a car to go to lunch with friends, He then slumped over. His friends attempted CPR and contacted the paramedics. They attempted to revive him 3 times with no success. Upon the 4th attempt his heart was revived yet with erratic behavior. He was then taken by helicopter to Gunderson Lutheran Hospital CCU in Lacrosse, WI and fitted with a temporary pacemaker and a balloon pump to ease stress on his heart.
As of yesterday, Monday, December 28, Michael's Mother, Elaine said that his condition seems to have "backslid".
