Little Tony Fauci: Follow the money

Anthony "Little Tony" Fauci, who assumes the authority to tell you how to live your life, lives his fairly well.

He earns $434,312 a year, and is the highest paid bureaucrat, earning more than the President. His wife earns another $176,000 as an employee of the National Institutes of Health, where her husband works. Together, they are worth at least $10 million.

We know all this only because Roger Marshall, M.D., a Republican senator who grilled Fauci over his financial disclosures -- leading a frustrated Fauci to call him under his breath a 'moron' -- published the public health expert's financial records. 'Dr. Fauci was completely dishonest about his disclosures being readily accessible to the public which is why I am releasing them now,' Marshall tweeted.

Now we're learning that Fauci received at least 23 royalty payments from pharmaceutical and other compnies. Undisclosed royalty payments estimated at $350 million to Fauci and hundreds of NIH scientists do present “an appearance of a conflict of interest,” according to the agency’s acting director.

Ya think?

“Of course it’s a direct conflict of interest for scientists like Anthony Fauci to rake in $350 million in royalties from third-parties who benefit from federal taxpayer-funded grants," said Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.). "Anthony Fauci is a millionaire that has gotten rich off taxpayer dollars. He is a prime example of the bloated federal bureaucracy. This royalty system should be examined to ensure it isn’t making matters worse.”

I think I'll send Tony some socks for Father's Day.
