A disabled, Wisconsin dairy farmer with two prosthetic legs, Adam Faust is suing the Biden administration over a COVID-19 loan forgiveness program. Faust alleges it is racist because whites aren’t eligible. Faust’s a white resident of Chilton, Wisc., filed a lawsuit stating: “Were plaintiffs eligible for the loan forgiveness benefit, they would have the opportunity to make additional investments in their property, expand their farms, purchase equipment and supplies, and otherwise support their families and local communities,” the lawsuit states. “Because plaintiffs are ineligible to even apply for the program solely due to their race, they have been denied the equal protection of the law and therefore suffered harm.” A June temporary restraining order by Wisconsin’s federal Eastern District halted payments for the program.
