Sen. John Fetterman suddenly hospitalized after ‘feeling lightheaded’ during retreat for Senate Democrats

“He left and called his staff, who picked him up and drove him to the George Washington University Hospital,” Calvello said.

Calvello explained that initial testing “did not show evidence of a new stroke,” but he added that doctors would continue to run tests and Fetterman would be held at the hospital overnight. The freshman senator is “in good spirits and talking with his staff and family,” Calvello said.

Fetterman’s health became a contentious issue last year after he suffered a stroke that nearly killed him. His campaign refused to address concerns related to his health, and Fetterman refused to provide Pennsylvanians with transparency about his health, such as releasing medical records, showing that he was fit to serve in the Senate.

Moreover, the tragic impacts of his stoke remain obvious, the Associated Press reported last November:

Fetterman still suffers from auditory processing disorder — a stroke’s common aftereffect — that could require him to use closed-captioning in hearings, meetings and debates. It also could possibly limit his ability to engage in the common practice of giving interviews to reporters in Senate corridors.

Still, Fetterman’s physician, Dr. Clifford Chen, said in a one-page letter last October that Fetterman is fit to serve.

“Overall, Lt. Gov. Fetterman is well and shows strong commitment to maintaining good fitness and health practices,” Chen said. “He has no work restrictions and can work full duty in public office.”

But it was later revealed that Dr. Chen is a donor to Democrats and even donated money to Fetterman’s campaign.
