TN: Fired vaccine bureaucrat received dog muzzle in mail

“Tennessee’s former top vaccination official received a dog muzzle in the mail a few days before she was fired this week in what she has said was an attempt to use her as a scapegoat to appease lawmakers, a newspaper reported. ‘Someone wanted to send a message to tell her to stop talking,’ said Brad Fiscus, the husband of Dr. Michelle Fiscus, told The Tennessean. ‘They thought it would be a threat to her.’ Michelle Fiscus had been facing harsh criticism from Republican lawmakers over the Tennessee Health Department’s outreach efforts to vaccinate teenagers against COVID-19.” [editor’s note: Might it also have been symbolic of her attempts to “mask” everyone indefinitely? – SAT] (07/15/21)
