REP. CLEMMONS ON THE FISCUS FIRING: “I’M INFURIATED”
Rep. John Ray Clemmons shared his feelings on Governor Lee firing Dr. Fiscus for doing her job and trying to keep Tennesseans safe, saying all Tennesseans should be “infuriated” at Lee for caving to the extreme science-denying right. Clemmons also expresses disappointment with TN Dept. of Health commish Dr. Lisa Piercey for not standing up for Dr. Fiscus.
WATCH: “I’m infuriated, as any Tennessean should be. This will create a chilling effect for all state employees.”
