Tennessee state vaccine czar Michelle Fiscus reported receiving dog muzzle in mail on July 3 after advocating for vaccination of children 14+ without parental consent. Investigation showed muzzle was bought with her own credit card, and could not be considered a threat in any case. Despite evidence, Fiscus still denies buying muzzle and was fired on July 12 over her recommendation.
