Miami road sign hacked to display ‘ARREST FAUCI’
A digital highway road sign in Miami was hacked to display various messages, including one calling for the arrest of Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Among the messages displayed to Miami drivers early Tuesday morning were: “ARREST DR. FAUCI,” “COVID WAS A HOAX,” and “VACCINES KILL.”
Miami-Dade Expressway Authority officials were contacted about the sign and promptly disabled it, according to WPTV.
The sign mishap comes as calls for Dr. Anthony Fauci to resign or be fired have intensified among Congressional Republicans.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) called for Fauci’s resignation earlier this month after his work emails were released following a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from BuzzFeed News.
“Anthony Fauci’s recently released emails and investigative reporting about #COVID19 origins are shocking. The time has come for Fauci to resign and for a full congressional investigation into the origins of #COVID19 – and into any and all efforts to prevent a full accounting,” Hawley tweeted June 4.
“The public deserves to know if persons within the US govt tried to stop a full investigation into #COVID origins, as recently reported. And Congress must also find out to what extent Fauci’s NIAID was involved in financing research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked earlier this month if there would be any circumstances where Fauci could be fired by President Biden. “No,” Psaki replied. “He’s been an undeniable asset in our country’s pandemic response,” Psaki said.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) called for Fauci to be fired earlier this month, saying, “I think because he’s been unwise, naive, and in all likelihood has been lying to us, he shouldn’t be in part of government.”
