“I Lied”: Anti-gun Democrat Ex-Candidate Elizabeth McCarthy’s Problems Grow…

Recently I wrote about the rabidly anti-gun Elizabeth McCarthy who claimed that she removed 77 bullets from 32 victims of the Pulse Nightclub massacre. Nevermind that the Pulse shooting was a Muslim terror attack, she tried to use her claim as part of her campaign for a Florida state house seat and to call for more restrictions on America’s law-abiding law-abiding gun owners.

McCarthy had launched a primary challenge in a Florida House District.  She served in positions with both the Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus as well as the national Democratic Women’s Caucus.  Clearly, she was a serious Democrat.

Soon after though, her wild claims quickly came under scrutiny.  In fact, they were utterly false and days later, she quit her campaign for the Democrat nomination for a Florida House race.

Her problems didn’t end there though. Now, the State of Florida has investigated and stands poised to assess her a fine, costs and a cease-and-desist order.

From Florida Politics:

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.

It’s seeking to fine her $1,000, plus costs. The department also is serving her with a cease-and-desist order, prohibiting her from telling anyone else that she is a medical doctor, according to documents provided to Florida Politics following a public records request…

With costs, she is being assessed a total penalty of $3,094.95. She has 30 days to dispute the investigation’s findings and seek a hearing, if she decides to do so.

Why the fine and costs? Well, she represented herself as a medical doctor when she is not.

“I lied,” the charging affidavit quotes McCarthy as explaining, when Aponte asked her why she could not provide evidence of being a doctor.

As to her claim, recited at Soto’s events and to Florida Politics, that she had removed 77 bullets from 32 Pulse victims while working in the Orlando Regional Medical Center on June 12, 2016, she told Aponte: “It is a false statement. I just made it up.”

Telling the truth apparently comes difficult for the would-be politician.

She also represented in earlier statements to Florida Politics claiming that she earned a medical degree from the University of Central Florida. She also claimed she played college basketball for the University of Florida Gators as well as Florida State University’s Seminoles.

However, her humiliation has gone way beyond the Sunshine State. Her story has made headlines internationally.  Including in the UK Daily Mail.

Ouch. That’s going to leave a mark.

    “I lied,” the charging affidavit quotes McCarthy,what else has she or would be willing to lie about.

    It would appear from the photo that she also has very low self esteem as to the company she keeps,of all the low life scum to associate with,none other than the Harpy Hag

      ‘Democrat’. What else does anyone see to know?

      1. avatar Kep says:

        The proper term is Communist. The Democratic Party is now the new Amerikan Communist Party. They are no longer Americans and should be rooted out and deported or jailed as terrorists.

    So a typical ‘Florida Woman’ then?

  4. avatar Am I Right says:

    She looks like a non-gender, pansexual alien of color post op.

    1. avatar Jericho says:

      No need to candy coat it. The only thing worse than the amount of lies she throws around is how horrid he/she/it looks. Ten bucks on it being a man.

  5. avatar Bigus Dickus says:

    She reminds me of the hologram Schwarzenegger wore in Total Recall while going through customs on Mars.

      “TWO WEEKS!!!”

      OMG!!! I thought she looked familiar!

      Sir, you win the Internetz for today.

        Wait…so my comment above required moderator scrutiny and delayed posting? I guess ice cream is too off-topic…

    “77 bullets from 32 victims” Sounds like the title of an 80’s punk rock song.

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go commit some crimes. Like ordering sushi and not paying.

    “I lied.”

    Well, yea, you’re a democrat.

    1. avatar Neil R Glenn says:

      For some Democrats, they can make themselves believe ANYTHING they say to be the “truth”, at least at that moment! For instance, we’re STILL waiting for the “proof” Nadler said they had on Pres. Trump’s ‘collusion’ and conspiracy charges! Any day, now!

  8. avatar MLee says:

    Tell me she doesn’t remind you of this lady!

    1. avatar Ginder12 says:

      Dickus: or private bone spurs.

      1. avatar Ranger Rick says:

        Family members of yours?

    2. avatar Enuf says:

      “TWO WEEKS!!!”

      And yes, it reminds of Private Bone Spurs too, before the Cheeto Dust Facials and Grecian Formula For Men.

  9. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

    Well yeah, but she did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night…

  11. avatar KenW says:

    I imagine other states have things happening. But our sunshine laws and open records means our dirty laundry gets aired. Here is a local republican doing similar

    At least ours was good looking

    1. avatar dph says:

      Well, better looking. Good looking might be kind of a stretch.

  12. avatar Quaid says:

    “How long do you plan to stay on mars?”

    “Two weeks.”

    “Have you brought any fruits or vegetables onto the planet?”

    “Two weeks.”

    “Excuse me?”

    “Two weekss..twwoooo weeeeeeksks.eeeghghghhhh”

  13. avatar Bigus Dickus says:

    Take a very close look at the pic at the top of this page…….Hitlery Clinton looks very much like a cardboard cutout. Was she really there for that pic?

    1. avatar Enuf says:

      Would it matter?

      Well, come to think about it, the cardboard cutout would be much easier on the hearing.

  14. avatar Hal_Greaves says:

    As if the truth ever mattered to anybody in the a ti-gun crowd.

  15. avatar Ralph says:

    So she identifies as a doctor. You got a problem with that?

  16. avatar Enuf says:

    Yes, politicians lie. They lie a bunch. None ever more frequently and outrageously than Trump. BIGGEST LIAR EVER!

    However, that aside, yes she’s a really poor liar. Also an ex-politician, which is a good thing.

    1. avatar David says:

      Well said.

    2. avatar B.D. says:

      I don’t even bother comparing. They all lie equally in my book. I hate equally.

    3. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

      Speaking as someone who was a never-Trumper, Thedonald has actually been one of the most honest politicians I can ever remember. If you want to criticize him, criticize him for being completely incapable of keeping his mouth shut about just about anything. As far as lying, well, he might change his mind 30 minutes later, but he says what he means and he means what he says (for now).

      1. avatar GluteusMaximus says:

        He has been kind of what you see is what you get

      2. avatar Enuf says:

        “Thedonald has actually been one of the most honest politicians I can ever remember”

        An unbelievable statement. Trump lies by the thousands each year. There are online lists of these lies that can hardly keep up. The man is repugnant and incompetent with his only skill being self promotion.

    ““I Lied”: Anti-gun Democrat Ex-Candidate Elizabeth McCarthy’s Problems Grow…”

    No shit…

  18. avatar Ralph says:

    Politicians lie when they say “hello.”

      Not really, no matter which one you elect, you’re guaranteed to get some ‘hell’ with that ‘hello’… 😉

    I’m impressed that they’re going after her for it.

      It’s just a glitch in the matrix. Someone inadvertently put an ‘R’ after its name. We’ll get that fixed ASAP.

    How many lies are the anti-freedom politicians telling that we don’t catch?
