Griswold still comparing herself to Fauci amid new questions about top doc’s credibility
For Immediate Release
DENVER, CO – Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold is still calling herself the “Dr. Fauci of vote-by-mail” as the country’s top doctor seemingly faces new questions about his credibility by the day.
Griswold has previously fundraised off of the association with Dr. Anthony Fauci, which allegedly originated with her supporters last year.
Her campaign began doing so online again this June telling her supporters, like Fauci, Griswold is supposedly “smart, fair, and an expert at what she does!”
The association isn’t as flattering as Griswold thinks.
In recent days Dr. Fauci has been accused of making misleading statements to Congress.
The dispute concerns whether Fauci knew in June of 2020 why the Trump administration directed the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to cancel a grant connected to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
According to a new book by two Washington Post reporters, Fauci knew precisely why the administration wanted the grant cancelled.
After downplaying the possibility for much of last year Fauci has adjusted his rhetoric on the origin of COVID-19 in recent months, stating he still is open to the possibility it may have originated in a Wuhan laboratory.
For her part Griswold has also taken an increasingly partisan posture recently with her support for legislation that would undermine confidence in Colorado elections and directly benefit her political allies.

“Calling yourself the ‘Dr. Fauci’ of anything right now doesn’t exactly inspire much confidence in one’s honesty or transparency,” said Compass Colorado Executive Director Kyle Kohli.
