Hate Hoax: Fired Tennessee Vaccine Director Purchased Dog Muzzle That She Claimed Was Sent by Someone to Intimidate Her
Michelle Fiscus, Tennessee’s former “vaccine chief,” has claimed that someone sent her a dog muzzle to intimidate her into silence.
Turns out it’s all a hoax.
According to Axios, a state investigation discovered that Fiscus indeed purchased the dog muzzle that was delivered to her house. The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security subpoenaed the muzzle and traced it to a credit card in Fiscus’ name.
The Axios report further says that when investigators asked for her Amazon account information, she provided them with an account under her name that was different from the one she ostensibly used to purchase the muzzle.
“The results of this investigation [show] that purchases from both Amazon accounts were charged to the same American Express credit card in the name of Dr. Michelle D. Fiscus,” the findings conclude.
Fiscus, however, still maintains her innocence. She claims that someone from out of state created the second Amazon account.
“Regarding the muzzle: I ASKED Homeland Security to investigate the origin. Just provided a redacted HS report by Axios Nashville. Report says a second account was made under my name from a phone in WA? Waiting on unredacted report. Hold tight. No, I didn’t send it to myself,” she tweeted Monday afternoon.
Then in two follow-up tweets she wrote that the Axios report “only concluded my credit card was charged with the incorrect billing address—my state work office—to an Amazon account I didn’t know existed.”
“That account was apparently accessed from the State of Washington, where I had never been, by a cell phone using a carrier I have never used. I have asked the state for the full unredacted report and am awaiting a response,” she added.
Fiscus has not yet explained why someone would hack her credit card information to send her a muzzle and make it appear as if she sent it to herself. She had previously been fired from her role as Tennessee’s vaccine director for “poor interpersonal communication skills, ineffective management and attempting to steer state money to a nonprofit she founded,” though she claims she was driven out for purely political reasons.
Prior to her firing she had also been facing a barrage of criticism from Tennessee Republicans after she wrote a memo explaining how some teenagers could get vaccinated against COVID-19 without parental approval.
