FL: Phony gun controller

Via Dave Hardy at Of Arms and the Law:

Soto Talks Gun Control at Town Hall
[U.S representative Darren ]Soto [D], a supporter of a ban on assault weapons, high capacity magazines, and bump stocks, led the Town Hall along with ... and Elizabeth McCarthy, a physician from Orlando Health, who treated victims from the Pulse massacre.

McCarthy, who is also a gun owner,[I'd like to see this verified] …
...” The physician also praised “the way the state has moved to protect civilians and the efforts representatives are doing.”


“That day [The night of the Pulse massacre] I removed 77 bullets from 32 people,” McCarthy said as she showed to the public bullets extracted from bodies. “That night was extremely hard because I am gay and those were my people.” The physician also spoke on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that affects not only survivors but also nurses and first responders.
HD 28 Democratic candidate Elizabeth McCarthy’s credentials don’t check out

Democratic House District 28 candidate Elizabeth McCarthy‘s stories about her career, credentials, and college backgrounds are not checking out.
She stated by text late Friday that she would be “pulling her campaign” after having been approached by Florida Politics about her credentials.

McCarthy, 50, garnered some respect and influence for telling people that she is a cardiologist at Orlando Regional Medical Center and on June 12, 2016, pulled bullets out of Pulse victims.


However, the Florida Department of Health has no record of her being licensed as a doctor.

Orlando Health, the parent company of Orlando Regional Medical Center, said there is no record of any doctor working there by her name, which (in full) is Catherine Elizabeth McCarthy.

McCarthy said she received her medical degree from the University of Central Florida, class of 2014, allowing her to transition from registered nurse to a doctor.

Nevertheless, UCF officials say they can’t find any record of any degree for her.

She said she has a bachelor’s degree from Florida State, but that school could not find a degree in her name either.

The Florida Department of Health confirmed that she was a licensed registered nurse until 2005 when her license expired. She then started a company called Medical Conceierge Inc., which state records show was in business from 2009 through 2014.


“It does not look like she was ever a licensed doctor, but she does have a background in health care,” said Department of Health spokesman Brad Dalton.

She also serves the Florida Democratic Party as the legislative director of the Democrats’ LGBTA Caucus.
