She signed the letter with the following message of support:
“First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt said this: Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”
Fellow doctor and member Paul Tambyah had referred to the same quote of the former American first lady in his speech at the rally on 3 May, to ask the to stop attacking Dr .
Ex-Director of ISD, Mr Yoong Siew Wah, who had endorsed Dr Chee’s bid for the constituency had also asked Dr Lee to consider supporting Dr Chee in the by-election.
“She will  forever be remembered as a national heroine” if she did, he said.

“But if the power that be wants to establish a dynasty, LKY’s daughter will not allow LKY’s name to be sullied by a dishonorable son.”

These were the words of Dr Lee Wei Ling, the daughter of Singapore’s first Prime Minister , and she had said them in an email to a local newspaper.
Her brother and the Prime Minister of Singapore, Mr Lee Hsien Loong, was quick to denounce Dr Lee’s accusations. He said her allegations were “completely untrue”.
But when an international publication, the Wall Street Journal, called Dr Lee to get her side of the story for their article yesterday (11 Apr), she would only tell them that the dispute “is a Singaporean matter” and that she “always try to stick by the truth”.

Update: Dr Lee has denied signing the petition to stop the character assassination of Dr Chee. Read her response in full here: http://bit.ly/1UAzlra.
