“Vaccine Makes People Magnetic.”-The Cleveland Doctor Who Said this Erroneous Statement Goes Under Investigation
The state medical board is investigating allegations that a Cleveland doctor allegedly stated that the COVID-19 vaccine could connect people to 5G towers and make them magnetic.
According to the board’s formal action letter, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, an osteopathic physician in Olmsted Falls, has refused to cooperate with investigators for over a year.
In the letter, the medical board states that an investigator initially contacted Tenpenny in the weeks following her June 2021 speech at the Ohio Statehouse but does not specify the nature of the initial probe since patient privacy laws protect such details.
To the chagrin of the crowd, State Representative Beth Liston (D-Dublin) vigorously refuted each of Tenpenny’s statements.
The doctor made a conspiracy theory
The doctor testified falsely in favor of a house bill intended to protect patients’ right to refuse treatment, which ultimately failed to pass. She echoed a conspiracy idea: “I’m sure you’ve seen the photographs all over the internet of folks who’ve had these shots, and now they’re magnetic, and if they place a key on their forehead, it sticks.” “They can stab them all over with spoons and forks, and they’ll stay put because — now we assume there’s a metal piece to that.”
To the chagrin of the crowd, State Representative Beth Liston (D-Dublin) vigorously refuted each of Tenpenny’s statements. Tenpenny continued her false testimony by claiming that “there [sic] has been folks who have long suspected that there was some type of an interface, yet to be defined, in the interaction between what’s being injected in the shots and all of the 5G towers.”
Just as she had predicted, the “nurse practitioner” tried to implant a key in her neck by saying she was magnetic. That plan failed miserably. Professor of law at Case Western Reserve University Sharona Hoffman speculated that this could be the reason for her investigation. They’re only trying to find out what happened; it’s not entirely clear that she did anything wrong.
But may someone on the board be punished for distributing false information? According to Hoffman, maybe. “That’s a tough question,” she said. “It has to be on purpose to solicit patients or on purpose to collect money for such deceptive misrepresentations.” The witness physician did mention her published works, podcast, blog, and online presence during her testimony. She promotes false material about COVID-19 in her “courses” on her website.
