Addiction medicine specialist and board-certified physician Dr. Drew Pinsky said he feels morally obliged to run for Congress because Schiff is abdicating his responsibility as the representative of his Congressional district. Pinsky criticized the city of Los Angeles for letting the homeless epidemic continue to grow, argues that housing is not a solution and warns of the health crisis posed by people on the street.
"People have come to me for various kinds of political engagements and I was watching the impeachment hearings and I was like wait a minute. I think I live in Adam Schiff's district. I didn't even know he was my congressman," Pinsky said. "I've lived there for 20 years and we're dying out here. I am sick of the political theater and I want someone to govern. We need help. I need the IMD exclusion lifted so we can treat the mentally chronically ill. We need infrastructure. We are dying in Southern California and these guys are engaged in political theater."
