A month ago I did a full copy and paste from a post out Of Arms & The Law where we met Elizabeth McCarthy who was running for a state house seat on a Liberal platform which included Gun Control. She claimed she had treated victims of the Pulse shooting and that she even kept some of the bullets as tragic mementos of her experience.
And then she was found to be lying and quit the race.
She finally fessed up, but only after she was investigated:
Former Democratic state House candidate Elizabeth McCarthy confessed to a state investigator that she lied about being a medical doctor and about treating victims of the 2016 Pulse massacre in Orlando.
That’s according to documents released by the Florida Department of Health on Wednesday.
The department is charging McCarthy with violating state law by lying about being a doctor, under the state’s unlicensed activity statutes.
“I lied,” the charging affidavit quotes McCarthy as explaining, when Aponte asked her why she could not provide evidence of being a doctor.
“I wanted to be somebody in the community, and I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I gave any impersonation. I knew it was wrong and I should have stopped — by no means did I ever mean to put anybody in jeopardy,” the affidavit says.
Pretending to be a doctor is a felony in Florida, even if you have not treated a single patient and the Department of Health says it is going ahead with the full Monty. But I believe that once the story enters the memory hole file, she will be slapped in the wrist an sent home without supper. I mean, she Did It For The Children! ®
If your cause is righteous, why lie?
With Liberals is because they can get away with it. We can’t.
