  • She LIED about receiving a DeSantis government contract and used millions in taxpayer money to buy her seat to Congress.
  • She LIED about giving $250,000 to a Republican political committee
  • She LIED living in Florida’s 20th Congressional District. She lives in DC!

Now she’s telling lies about Dale Holness!

  • She lied about the FBI raiding his office.
  • She lied about his campaign manager running a “criminal operation” in his office.

  • Dale Holness’s office was NEVER raided by the FBI.
  • NO ONE ran a “criminal operation” inside the office.

Here's more TRUTH:

  • She also contributed over $250,000 to help fund a Republican political committee.

More about Lying Sheila:

  • Rep. Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick bought her seat in congress with taxpayer money that she was given to provide COVID vaccines.
  • These vaccines were meant to be distributed to the Black community In Broward County. Due to the Congresswoman’s egregious. Due to her egregious profiteering of taxpayer dollars—Black communities.
  • Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick personally pocketed $6.2m of the $8m she was given to distribute vaccinations
  • Additionally, after receiving the large contract from Ron DeSantis, Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick’s company Trinity Health Care Services (THCS) received $1.2 million dollars in PPP loans from the Trump Admin. in 2020.
  • Despite the fact that Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick lost two primaries before the election in November 2021 the first time she filed any financial disclosures was on December 21st, 2021. Those disclosures show that out of the $8 million she got from DeSantis for vaccination work she paid herself more than $6.2 million to the two companies her and her brother incorporated in March 2021. Those payments were for “consulting and profit sharing”. So, more than 75% of the money she got for vaccination work she put in her own pocket. Not only that but she also got another PPP loan in April 2021 for almost $1.2 million.
    • TLDR: Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick used millions of our tax dollars earmarked for vaccinations to buy her seat in Congress. She did not file the financial disclosures required by law before any of her first three elections in order to hide the source of the funds she used to buy the election in November 2021.
  • From April 13th through August 23rd, 2021, Trinity Health Care Services drew down a little more than $8 million from those contracts she received from the Executive Office of Governor Ron DeSantis
    • The week that Alcee Hastings died (the first week of April 2021) THCS got a $1 million PO from the Executive Office of the Governor for vaccination efforts. The day after Alcee Hastings died, they got another PO from the same source for an additional $1.2 million.
    • A week after Alcee Hastings died THCS started drawing down on the contracts from the DeSantis Administration.
  • The first loan to her campaign was the month after she started drawing down the money for vaccination work she was getting from DeSantis. That $6.2 million is an amount greater than her entire net worth according to her financial disclosures filed in December 2021.
  • She still hasn’t filed the required disclosures for her 2018 campaign.

Key quotes from the article linked above:

  • “The recently uncovered level of corruption by Rep. Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick is unprecedented.”
  • “The money Cherfilus-McCormick used to buy her seat in Congress came from taxpayer dollars provided by DeSantis’ Office under the guise of helping to get communities vaccinated”
  • “The $6.5 million used to fund the congressional campaign amounts to more than 75% of the money Cherfilus-McCormick was given to help poor and disadvantaged people get vaccinated. No other sources of funds have been disclosed as being at Cherfilus-McCormick’s disposal to use for those loans.”
  • “Cherfilus-McCormick broke the law by concealing her finances and apparent financial improprieties to the voters that elected her.”
  • “When you consider the self-dealing and concealing of their finances from public scrutiny, Cherfilus-McCormick and Trump are like two peas in a pod of corruption when it comes to such matters.”
  • “Every last dollar she took from the Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis administrations should have gone to keeping folks alive by getting them vaccinated or maintaining payroll for struggling businesses. Instead (Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick and her family) took millions for themselves.”
