While Americans were stuck in their homes, many of whom lost their jobs, place of business, their livelihood, and were overall struggling – Dr. Fauci and his wife had a net worth increase of 5 million over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Fauci is the top-paid federal employee. While raking in money as the top-paid federal employee, Fauci is also accepting prices to the tune of $1 million from foreign non-profits. Dr. Fauci noticed only 10% of the award.
According to FOXNews.com:
The Faucis saw their net worth expand from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million at the end of 2021, watchdog group OpenTheBooks discovered and shared with Fox News Digital. The increase came from the likes of investment gains, awards, compensation and royalties.
“While Dr. Fauci has been a government bureaucrat for more than 55 years, his household net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic,” OpenTheBooks CEO Adam Andrzejewski told Fox News Digital. “Fauci’s soaring net worth was based on career-end salary spiking, lucrative cash prizes awarded by non-profit organizations around the world and an ever-larger investment portfolio.”
“Despite becoming a figure of controversy, the system has rewarded Dr. Fauci handsomely,” Andrzejewski said. “For example, he is the top-paid federal employee, his first-year golden parachute retirement pension is the largest in federal history, and he’s accepting $1 million prizes from foreign non-profits.”
The man who has a large picture of himself in his own office, Dr. Fauci, will be retiring within the next few months. Dr. Fauci is seen as something with a large ego, who absolutely loves the praise he gets for his role in the COVID-19 pandemic, loves being on t.v. to praise himself, and enjoys making political moves to aid people who comply with COVID-19 lockdowns. Going into the pandemic, many had high hopes for Dr. Fauci. However, after publicly feuding with Trump and making overt political moves during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, trust in Dr. Fauci quickly deteriorated.
