Physicians Call on Justice Department to Launch Investigation into Gov. Bill Lee’s Reckless Misconduct and Abuse of Office in the COVID-19 Public Health Crisis


Add your name to the open letter calling for an independent counsel to investigate the Governor’s reckless misconduct, including: undermining of medical experts, suppression of life-saving public health guidance, spread of misinformation, and the political firing of the state's vaccine official for doing her job to help keep children safe.

Dear Justice Department:

No matter where we live,  the color of our skin, or our politics, we have seen over the last year how the health of one person affects the health of the person next to them and the person next to that person.

Instead of going all-in for all of us so that we could get through COVID together, Governor Lee has continued to reject, undermine, and suppress the advice of health experts, prolonging the COVID-19 crisis and leading to entirely avoidable school and business closures, and entirely avoidable hospitalizations and deaths.

Governor Bill Lee should be investigated by an independent counsel for his reckless misconduct and mismanagement of Tennessee’s response to COVID-19.

Now, as most of the country successfully increases vaccinations, aiding their own economic recovery while protecting the most vulnerable, Bill Lee is further politicizing the health crisis and endangering children in school, our state's recovery and everyone's access to health care as Tennessee hospitals reach capacity.

This extremist partisan attack on public health and safety must be investigated.
