A liar is caught

The news is out: [During her successful run last year for a seat in Missouri’s House of Representatives, 63-year-old Republican Patricia Ashton Derges pitched herself as a businesswoman who, as a doctor and the owner of a chain of healthcare clinics, understood how the medical system was failing people. If elected, Derges would work “to find solutions for the ridiculously high cost of healthcare while ensuring that the quality goes up,” as she wrote in a Facebook post from July 2020. She continued, “It has been money driven for far too long! It is time the patient comes first!!”
On Monday, federal prosecutors unsealed a twenty-count indictment against Derges that charged her with, among other serious allegations, defrauding patients whom she offered fake stem cell treatments. So much for putting patients ahead of profits!]

Patricia is not alone.
