Former Florida House Candidate Admits to Lying About Treating Mass Shooting Victims

A former Florida Democratic House candidate has admitted to lying about treating people from the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida.

Catherine Elizabeth McCarthy admitted to a state investigator that she lied about being a doctor, including when she said she was one of the doctors who treated victims of the June 2016 massacre, according to documents released by the Florida Department of Health.

“That night of Pulse, I personally removed 77 bullets from 32 people,” McCarthy stated at an event hosted back in March by Florida Rep. Darren Soto, according to a recording of the event from WESH-TV in Orlando.

McCarthy “informed this Investigator she never treated any patients the night of the Pulse night club tragedy” and “admitted that she had lied about her education and has never attended medical school,” according to a cease and desist notice from the Florida Department of Health.
