Stop Cronyism and Dangerous Disinformation From Crippling COVID-19 Response

Target: Henry Kerner, Special Counsel of the United States Office of Special Counsel

Goal: Investigate allegations of politics-fueled mismanagement in COVID-19 response.

Explosive allegations of gross mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic—mismanagement that may have ultimately ended lives—have been leveled by a top official forced out of his job at the Department of Health and Human Services.  Dr. Rick Bright, former Director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, alleged in a whistleblower complaint that he faced constant “pressure from HHS leadership to ignore scientific merit and expert recommendations and instead to award lucrative contracts based on political connections and cronyism.”  This complaint follows similar concerns expressed by a whistleblower who exposed the complete lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) utilized by workers dealing with evacuees in the early days of the outbreak and another whistleblower who called out the widespread inexperience and incompetence of Jared Kushner’s PPE task force.

The 80-page report filed by Dr. Bright accuses his bosses of pushing ineffective and potentially dangerous drugs (like the infamous hydroxychloroquine regularly touted by President Trump) because they could be profitable for higher-ups in the administration. Meanwhile, an offer by a U.S. manufacturer to make mass quantities of vital protective masks was apparently disregarded. The complaint also claims that despite President Trump’s repeated battering of the World Health Organization, during a January teleconference this group alerted the administration that the novel coronavirus “was a big problem” that would likely only worsen. At the same time, the president was assuring the public that the outbreak would “disappear” and “go away” in a short period of time.

Dr. Bright is asking for reinstatement of his job and for a full investigation into the deeply troubling federal response to this global emergency. Sign the petition below to join this scientific leader in his calls for accountability and meaningful reform that could save millions of lives.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Kerner,

The quiet disbandment of the pandemic federal response office a couple of years ago should have been a signal. The individuals that should have held those responsible for this decision accountable did not heed the warning signs, however. Please do not follow their lead. Several whistleblower complaints—including one by a former volunteer for the Jared Kushner PPE task force and the most recent by the ousted Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority director—have been filed in recent months.

The complaint lodged by Dr. Rick Bright is especially troubling because it highlights apparent incompetence and mismanagement on several fronts, from a gravely delayed oversight in taking this threat seriously to drug and PPE supportive measures driven not by public health but by “political connections and cronyism.” Dr. Bright claims he lost his job because he pushed back against these deadly errors. Please honor his request to give these crucial allegations full merit, consideration, and investigation.

Do not ignore the warning signs this time. The consequences could be fatal.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    What is as bad is a petition full of disinformation and lies. A “top doctor” was sacked for his lies. Hydroxychloroquine has been shown to work in many scientific tests and by individual doctors yet this moron says that it doesn’t. What Tiffany should be squawking about is that the Hydroxychloroquine has been manufactured as well as given to the government and that it is being stockpiled.

    If you are going to print a petition then it behoves the author to write the truth and not the manufactured garbage coming from the Dems. And, no, I don’t give a damn about Trump, I just care about the truth.

    Tiffany White get your story straight and stop listening to the lies you get from the liberal compulsive lairs.

  3. When you support our LUNATIC-IN-CHARGE, you tell the world more about yourself, than you do about a sociopath, Mr. Trump.
