Anthony Bouchard, a senator running for congress from Wyoming, put a meme on his congressional campaign’s Facebook page accusing Dr. Anthony Fauci of lying and calling for Fauci to be hanged.
“Lethal injection, hanging, or the chair after conviction?” In the post, Bouchard wrote something that was accompanied by a picture of Fauci that had a noose hanging over it.
The photograph, which Bouchard claimed to have created himself, was submitted to the Federal Bureau of Investigation by the Wyoming Democratic Party.
The National Institutes of Health released a large collection of records a few weeks ago, and they revealed that the United States had supported pathogenic research in Wuhan, the Chinese province where the new coronavirus is thought to have originally appeared.
According to some, the virus was created in a lab in Wuhan and either unintentionally or on purpose introduced into the general population. The Intercept article’s publication has rekindled interest in the notion, especially among conservatives like U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a Republican.
The core of Bouchard’s political persona is his skepticism about the COVID-19 outbreak and the government’s reactions to it. He has advocated for unorthodox therapies like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin and was a significant participant in last winter’s anti-public health order demonstrations at the State Capitol.
During the legislative session of 2021, he also introduced measures to oppose vaccination requirements.
If that’s the case, only [Democrats] will be able to say it, but if someone else does something, it’s an issue, and that’s dangerous, according to Bouchard.
In response to a comment made beneath that article, Bouchard stated, in part: “I stand by my earlier remarks. Fauci is a murderer, and others in positions of authority who support him need to be punished similarly.
As of Monday, the tweet had been deleted, and campaign spokeswoman April Poley told Cowboy State Daily that she was not of the reason why.
She did, however, add that she didn’t think the senator regretted accepting the position.
She said to Cowboy, “I think he is very clear with his opinions on Fauci in that piece.
Bouchard, according to Poley, “has never been one to shirk from expressing his thoughts, whether they be controversial or not,” and he is also not the kind of guy to first ask the public for their opinion on a subject before making a statement.
He doesn’t do voter surveys before expressing his opinions, she continued.
