Dr. Amy Acton resigns as Ohio Department of Health director

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Dr. Amy Acton, Ohio’s state health director who has become a household name in Ohio during the coronavirus crisis, has resigned effective immediately, Gov. Mike DeWine announced Thursday.

Acton will remain as the governor’s chief adviser on health issues, DeWine said. Lance Himes, the Ohio Department of Health’s general counsel, will become as interim director, the governor said.

The governor said he tried in vain to convince Acton to stay as director, and he praised her “wise advice and counsel” and “extraordinary bedside manner” since he appointed her last year.

Acton has drawn wide admiration in Ohio for her appearances during DeWine’s daily coronavirus briefings. Bobbleheads and cartoons have been made featuring her.

But she has also become a lightning rod of criticism from opponents of the DeWine administration’s coronavirus orders.

3. From an article in The Columbus Dispatch

“ State Rep. Nino Vitale, R-Urbana, an opponent of closing down Ohio during the pandemic, was gleeful over Acton’s departure. “I am hearing she is still on the tax payer dime but Actin’ Acton has resigned as Health Director. I say NOT good enough! 1 down, 2 to go of the Terrible Tyrannical Trio!” he wrote on his Facebook page.”

This appalling idiot is the definition of deplorable. He is the one who refused to wear a face mask because he felt that your face is “the image of God”.

The fact that HE is on the tax payer dime is the real tragedy here.

4. The Ohio legislature is filled with Neanderthals

Ol' Nino has lots of stupid company. I keep thinking that those jerks are the reason we have lost Dr. Acton. We will miss her in the days ahead.
