Elizabeth McCarthy, an LGBTQP Democrat and former candidate for the Florida House of Representatives, is now being charged by the Florida Department of Health for pretending to be a cardiologist, which is a felony in the third degree that carries with it a penalty of $1,000, plus costs, for a first-time offense.
According to reports, McCarthy was recently served with a cease-and-desist order for her crime, which prohibits her from telling anyone else that she's a medical doctor. She's also the subject of a formal investigation into her wrongdoing that was launched on June 15, which aims to prosecute her to the full extent of the law.
In the immediate aftermath of the shooting incident, McCarthy told the media that it was "an honor to be in the medical field," even though she's never been in the medical field. "I love what I do," she further stated, adding that "I love helping people and giving better options to people – that's the best way I can say it."
When asked about what she supposedly did to help following the event, McCarthy claimed that she had "personally removed 77 bullets from 32 victims," adding that "it was like an assembly line." She further contended that it was "probably one of the hardest things of my career to work through" – though we now know that it was all a fabrication.
"I lied," McCarthy has since admitted in a sworn affidavit provided to Department of Health Medical Quality Assurance Investigator Rafael B. Aponte. "It is a false statement. I just made it up."
"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," McCarthy is further quoted as saying.
Directly pertaining to McCarthy's confession, Florida state law clearly explains that it is "a felony of the third degree ... to practice, attempt to practice, or offer to practice a health care profession without an active, valid Florida license to practice that profession" – which is exactly what McCarthy did!
"Holding oneself out, regardless of the means of communication, as able to practice a health care profession or as able to provide services that require a health care license shall be deemed to be an attempt or offer to practice such profession without a license," that same law further states.
After it was revealed that McCarthy had lied about her involvement in providing medical care following the Pulse Nightclub incident, McCarthy withdrew from the race for Florida's House District 28, since she had absolutely no chance of winning anyway.
Despite having once been a registered nurse in the state of Florida, we also now know that McCarthy never actually worked at Orlando Regional Medical Center like she claimed – and certainly wasn't employed there in the aftermath of the Pulse Nightclub shooting.
In total, McCarthy, who lives in Sanford, faces a total fine of around $3,094, according to reports.
"I'm surprised she didn't go on about equal pay for women in trauma units," joked one commenter at The Federalist Papers. "She went the rest of the way. Certifiable nut case. Liar, lesbian, loser."
