Earlier this week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House chief medical advisor and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said he will likely step down from his leadership positions in 2024. This is welcome news for many of us. However, as a longtime health official and architect of the nation’s COVID-19 response, Fauci hasn’t proven himself to be deserving of the job and has lost the confidence of the American people.
While we can all look forward to his departure from government, 2024 isn’t soon enough. Why? I’ll give you six reasons why Fauci needs to go right now.
Last year, Fauci was accused of violating the Hatch Act — which prohibits government employees from “us[ing] his official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election.” The complaint, filed by Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT), a non-profit organization, said Fauci violated the Hatch Act by conducting an interview with the Washington Post days before the presidential election in November 2020, in which he made political statements about the election and the two major party candidates, Trump and Biden.
“Dr. Anthony Fauci’s evaluation of the two candidates running for President during his interview with The Washington Post on October 30, 2020 demonstrated a clear intent to use his influence as one of the nation’s leading COVID-19 experts to affect the outcome of the coming national election,” the complaint read.
