Ben Carson inundated with donations after speech

(Christian Post) Move over Dr. Oz, it looks like Dr. Benjamin Carson is America’s favorite new physician and the people are loving his political incorrectness, too.

After throwing political caution to the wind in his candid speech at the National Prayer Breakfast last Thursday, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson of John Hopkins Hospital is riding his popularity with high sales of his books and being flooded with donations to his Carson Scholars Fund celebrating “intellectual superstars” in America’s schools.

“The Prayer Breakfast speech has caused a lot of people to go to the Carson Scholars Fund website and many became excited about what we are doing. It is a gratifying response, the gist of which is still being assessed,” said Sheila Butler, expansion coordinator at the Carson Scholars Fund, in an interview with The Christian Post on Thursday.
