Republican US Senate candidate Mark Pukita from Ohio boasted last week that he had not received the COVID-19 vaccine and is now making money from vaccine companies, according to a new disclosure made by the US Senate.

Pukita, an IT executive, holds up to $50,000 in Johnson & Johnson stock, making up to $1,000 in dividends in the past year, according to a financial disclosure viewed by Insider.

This disclosure also shows that he has up to $15,000 worth of Pfizer stock and has received up to $1,000 in dividends over the past year.

Pukita can also make personal stock investments in Thermo Fisher Scientific or Abbott Laboratories of up to $15,000 each. Both companies produce COVID-19 test.

Pukita said that he was not the only candidate who had not received the vaccine during a candidate forum held last week in Columbus.

Pukita stated, “It’s one to talk, but it’s quite another to act.” He claimed he was protesting against vaccine mandates. “I’m also here… who’s not vaccinated.”

He also challenged Josh Mandel, a US Senate candidate, to tell him if he has been vaccinated. Mandel, who is the frontrunner in this race, declined to answer.

Pukita’s campaign ad about Mandel, which he released previously, was widely criticized as antisemitic. Pukita denied that the ad was anti Jewish.

His campaign website states that he is not anti-vax, but absolutely anti-force and that Pukita the only Ohio senator candidate who has not been vaxxed.

The website calls for an “all-out assault on the SWAMP and deep state” and an end the “unholy alliance between the Deep State and Big-Tech”. However, Pukita’s Senate financial disclosure shows that he has stock in many tech giants, including up $50,000 each in Apple and Amazon, Comcast, Facebook (now Meta) and Alphabet, Google, as well as up $100,000 in Microsoft.

Insider asked Pukita for comment but he did not respond immediately.

JD Vance, a candidate for the GOP Senate primary seat in Ohio, also participated in the race. He missed filing federally mandated financial disclosure forms by the deadline and still hasn’t done so.
