A public affairs officer at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is out of a day job after a report found he was moonlighting pseudonymously as an editor for a conservative website, where he regularly trashed his agency and its director, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The RedState managing editor known as “streiff” is actually William Crews, The Daily Beast reported yesterday. Crews was, until this week, a public affairs specialist at NIAID, which is one of the 27 institutes and centers that comprise the National Institute of Health.

As streiff, Crews “derided his own colleagues as part of a left-wing anti-Trump conspiracy and vehemently criticized the man who leads his agency,” according to The Daily Beast. Additionally, he described his boss as “attention-grubbing and media-whoring Anthony Fauci” and “a mask nazi.”
