Convention of States!


Should Congress investigate Dr. Fauci? Majority of Americans think so.

Published in Blog on January 24, 2023 by Jakob Fay

Doctor Anthony Fauci may have retired, but the American people aren’t about to let him off the hook.

New polling from Convention of States Action and The Trafalgar Group reveals that 52.2 percent of voters say that Dr. Fauci, who oversaw the nation’s botched response to the COVID-19 pandemic, should be investigated by the new Congress for his inconsistent testimony about research leading up to the pandemic, and then his actions managing the pandemic. This sentiment is most widely shared by Republicans, 80 percent of whom believe Fauci should be investigated. Fifty-six percent of Independent voters agree.

“Had the COVID-19 pandemic been well-managed, it would have been prudent for Congress to hold hearings to talk about what we learned and what could be done better in the future. And yet–despite the fact that the pandemic was horribly mismanaged and that untold millions of Americans continue to pay the price for the COVID-era policies–some that are still in effect–Congress has failed to act,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States. “This poll offers a strong and clear message to the new Congress–we want you to investigate Fauci and get to the bottom of this before the next pandemic repeats the same gross mistakes.”

Fauci’s response to COVID-19 was widely criticized from many angles. At one point, the now-former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) testified to Congress that the National Institute of Health (NIH) had never funded gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (where it is believed COVID-19 originated). Documents obtained through a FOIA lawsuit later surfaced suggesting that Fauci’s statement was dishonest.

“The documents make it clear that assertions… that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement in Wuhan are untruthful," explained Richard Ebright, the laboratory director at the Waksman Institute of Microbiology. Contrary to Fauci’s claim, the NIH "unequivocally" funded gain-of-function research in China, Ebright argued.

Fauci was also criticized for sending mixed messaging about masking in the early days of the pandemic. Initially, he told the American people that there was “no reason to be walking around with a mask.” Shortly thereafter, he abruptly changed face – masks were absolutely necessary, he said. Fauci blamed his change of heart on ever-changing science, data, and research, yet later confessed he intentionally misled the public to ensure that his colleague obtained masks first.

Despite these and countless other missteps, Fauci’s net worth reportedly skyrocketed to over $12 million during the pandemic. Additionally, it is projected that he will receive “well over $1 million” in the first few years of his retirement.

But as Fauci continues to enjoy his personal "financial blessings" of COVID-19, the American people aren’t so happy.

The voters have spoken – the most notorious doctor in American history
must be investigated.

If Congress fails to act, this will be yet more proof that our federal government is out-of-touch. Any government that empowers unelected, power-hungry bureaucrats like Dr. Fauci to upend the lives of millions of Americans needs more than an investigation – it needs to be reined in, and the only way to do that is through an Article V Convention of States.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
