Dean of USC: Investigation Blows Lid Off Of Secret Double-life — Drugs, Hookers

Written by K. Walker on July 17, 2017

Carmen A. Puliafito was top of the world making $1.1M as Dean of USC’s Med School. Who would have guessed he was a Meth Head?

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

“He would say, ‘They love me around here. The medical students think I am God,’” said Sarah Warren, the woman who overdosed. — Fox

Dr. Puliafito was a multi-millionaire renowned eye surgeon and just wrapping up his time as Dean of the Keck School Of Medicine. He secured hundreds of millions in grants for the school. He landed top talent. He was a ‘golden boy’.

And then the hard partying left someone dead.

And it all came crashing down.

During his tenure as dean, Puliafito kept company with a circle of criminals and drug users who said he used methamphetamine and other drugs with them, a Los Angeles Times investigation found.

Puliafito, 66, and these much younger acquaintances captured their exploits in photos and videos. The Times reviewed dozens of the images.

Shot in 2015 and 2016, they show Puliafito and the others partying in hotel rooms, cars, apartments and the dean’s office at USC.

In one video, a tuxedo-clad Puliafito displays an orange pill on his tongue and says into the camera, “Thought I’d take an ecstasy before the ball.” Then he swallows the pill.

In another, Puliafito uses a butane torch to heat a large glass pipe outfitted for methamphetamine use. He inhales and then unleashes a thick plume of white smoke. Seated next to him on a sofa, a young woman smokes heroin from a piece of heated foil. —LA Times

So much for a quiet retirement and the respect of his peers.

It doesn’t take many dumb choices to trash all you have worked for your entire life.

Integrity matters.

Don’t crash and burn like this guy and so many others like him.

Instead, change the culture.
