'Moron' Sen. Roger Marshall Invents Vapid Acronym For Anti-Fauci Act

The GOP lawmaker is playing his exasperating exchange with the chief medical adviser for all it's worth.

Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), who was called a moron by Dr. Anthony Fauci after the lawmaker baselessly grilled him on his financial investments, isn’t done attacking the COVID-19 expert just yet.

The GOP lawmaker plans to unveil the “FAUCI” Act, which stands for ― wait for it ― the Financial Accountability for Uniquely Compensated Individuals, a Marshall spokesperson told The Hill on Thursday.

The Fauci Act “would require the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) website to provide the financial records of administration officials like Fauci and a list of those in the government whose financial records are not public,” The Hill wrote.

Marshall badgered Fauci at a Senate hearing this week about his investments and demanded to know why they aren’t disclosed. Fauci reminded the senator that those records are public and was caught on a hot mic calling his inquisitor a “moron” for not knowing that.

Marshall’s grandstanding adds to a string of Republican attacks on Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden.

Extremist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) once introduced a bill that would reduce Fauci’s salary to $0. She called it the “Fire Fauci Act.”
