The Republican congressional primary race in Florida’s 21st district continues to be one of the most bizarre and colorful races in the state, if not the entire country,
Because President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago residence is within the district, this race has already received national attention. Couple that with Conservative Journalist Laura Loomer also running in the race to replace Rep. Lois Frankel (D), there is no question that this race is being closely watched by The White House and the Joe Biden for President Campaign.
Loomer is largely considered the frontrunner in the race due to the unprecedented social media and grassroots support she has garnered over the years.
But while Loomer may have a path to victory in this race, she is not the only one running.
Reba Sherrill, a Palm Beach island resident (renter), recently told The Floridian that she “gave up her license” to practice medicine and “used to perform bone marrow transplants” but “walked away from that 30 years ago.”
In a recent story about the four Republican candidates in congressional district 22, the Palm Beach Post reported on our interview with Sherrill, concluding that they could not find any record of Sherrill ever being a doctor in Florida. The post was referencing an alleged retweet by Jessica Melton that acknowledge Sherrill as a medical doctor.
In a separate incident, she posted a quote that said, among other things, that face masks can lead to death. The quote was ascribed to a doctor who turned out to be Reba Sherrill, a Republican presently running for U.S. House District 21, a seat now held by Democratic U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel of West Palm Beach.
Sherrill told the Floridian Press in a recent interview that she is an oncologist who retired around the age of 26, but was unable to recall which medical school she attended. The Florida Department of Health shows no record of Sherrill ever holding a medical license. The post, Melton said, was retweeted from a source she trusted.
The retweet Melton spoke about was actually a stretch. Melton Did not retweet anyone, she actually put out the original tweet, which she has since deleted. Melton posted the deleted tweet on her Facebook page.
Now we have uncovered that Sherrill may have actually been a licensed registered nurse, and not a doctor as she claimed.
Here is the public record search we performed.
We reached out to Sherrill via text and asked her where she studied to be a registered nurse but did not hear back from her.
Sherrill, who has been pushing the attacks against Loomer that have come from disgraced activist Annie Marie Delgado, has also been very active on social media, posting attacks against Loomer that question her sexuality.
Here is the Q & A we had with Sherrill during the aforementioned interview we had with her:
Q: Where did you go to school?
Sherrill: Tennessee and I went to school in Florida.
Q: I’m sorry which college did you go to?
Sherrill: I don’t know, they changed the name I don’t even know what it’s called anymore.
Q: Where you did you work in the medical office in the medical field, were you an oncologist or were you just working in an office?
Sherrill: I am nationally certified in Oncology. I used to perform bone marrow transplants, but I walked away from that 30 years ago. I gave up my license and uh, I don’t practice medicine anymore. Wellness is a complete can of worms.
Q: I know a lot of doctors, that’s tough to walk away from a practice like they’re going all the schooling?
Sherrill: You know, here’s the thing, once I got into doing the bone marrow transplants after a couple of years I found out that I was actually killing people not healing people. I went into the medical field to bring healing not to destroy their lives and send him to an early grave, so I stopped doing it, and I chose a different path.
Q: OK well what do you what have you been doing in the past 30 years?
Sherrill: I practice the Wellness industry and a lot of other different things. Journalism, I’ve don’t a lot of different businesses. I’ve done construction, a lot of things.
The other Republicans in the race are Aaron Scanlon, Michael Vilardi, Elizabeth Felton, and Christian Acosta.
