GOP Senator Pushes ‘FAUCI’ Act

Dr. Anthony Fauci

( – Following a heated battle between Dr. Anthony Fauci and Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) during a hearing in the United States Senate this week, Marshall has introduced federal legislation that would force Fauci, and many other high-ranking presidential appointees, to make their finances public and easy to obtain.

During that hearing, after being asked by Marshall to disclose his financials and asserting that he has and that they are publicly available, Fauci was caught on an open microphone muttering under his breath about Marshall, saying, “What a moron! Jesus Christ!”

Marshall insists what Fauci muttered doesn’t bother him but that he wants the public to know what the financial holdings are of high-ranking federal employees.

According to the New York Post:

“Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) is hoping a hot-mic moment with Dr. Anthony Fauci earlier this week leads to a groundswell of support for his bill that would force the publication of White House officials’ financial records.

“The bill, formally titled the Financial Accountability for Uniquely Compensated Individuals (FAUCI) Act, would also require the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) to publish a list of government officials whose financial disclosures are not publicly available, according to multiple outlets…

“According to Marshall, his office attempted to track down Fauci’s financial records ‘for weeks.’ After putting in requests to both the doctor’s staff and the National Institutes of Health, the senator ultimately was unable to obtain them.” [emphasis added]
