Anti-vax Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is being called out for owning stock in three vaccine companies despite claiming to be unvaccinated and spreading misinformation about Covid-19 and vaccines.
According to reports by the Chattanooga Times Free Press citing financial disclosures the congresswoman submitted on August 13.
The Republican congresswoman reportedly owns stock in Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, all of which make COVID-19 vaccines, and has made income ranging between $201-$1,000 in the stock from each company. Her Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson assets are valued between $15,001 and $50,000 each and AstraZeneca assets are valued between $1,001 and $15,000.
In the United States, both Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson manufacture two of the three main vaccines that have been approved for use across as well as in Europe.
Greene’s shares were highlighted on Twitter by her Republican primary opponent, Jennifer Strahan, who posted a poll that read: “With all of the theatrics going on in Washington, I thought we could have some fun and do a poll question. I will release the results on Friday!”
Greene has been more than vocal about her criticism of vaccine mandates since the pandemic began. She also shared that she herself is not vaccinated.
“I’m not vaccinated. And they’re going to have a hell of a time if they want to hold me down and give me a vaccine,” she said over the weekend at a far-right conference staged by Turning Point USA.
