Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing Pfizer, claiming the company misrepresented the efficacy of their COVID-19 vaccine and attempted to silence critics, as reported by Fox News.
Paxton (R) maintains that Pfizer violated the Texas Deceptive Practices Act with “false, deceptive, and misleading acts,” as well as “unsupported claims regarding the company’s COVID-19 vaccine.”
“We are pursuing justice for the people of Texas,” Paxton declared, “many of whom were coerced by tyrannical vaccine mandates to take a defective product sold by lies.”
“The facts are clear. Pfizer did not tell the truth about their COVID-19 vaccines,” he added.
The Texas attorney general further insinuated that the Biden administration, based on Pfizer’s touted success rates, “weaponized the pandemic to force illegal public health decrees on the public and enrich pharmaceutical companies.”
The lawsuit also contends that Pfizer used social media to “intimidate” and “silence prominent truth-tellers.”
“I will use every tool I have to protect our citizens who were misled and harmed by Pfizer’s actions,” Paxton said in a statement.
