Ohio MAGA candidate for Senate J.D. “Hillbilly Effigy” Vance has a burnt monkey testicle problem, according to Rolling Stone.

The opportunistic, Trump-endorsed Vance might spew all the MAGA propaganda — anti-vax, anti-higher education, anti-Big Tech — but Vance is first and foremost a greedy venture capitalist.

His VC firm, Narya, is an investor in Hallow, a “prayer app” that’s been under fire for allegedly seeking to profit off the “intimate religious data” of its users. Narya is also a backer of Rumble, the far-right “free speech” video service that competes with YouTube by platforming noxious miscreant creators who’ve been kicked out of more respectable corners of the internet.

In addition to Narya’s holdings, Vance declared his VC firm owns as much as $100,000 in a multimillion biotech startup called AmplifyBio, a drug-testing firm that has been portrayed in the Ohio press as part of the state’s transition from rust-belt decay to high-tech rebirth. The firm touts its mission as: “Advancing Science for Humankind.” Suuuure it is.

Rolling Stone reports that behind its fancy exterior, AmplifyBio operates a disturbing enterprise testing experimental drugs developed by other companies on live animals, including monkeys and dogs. Many of these animals die in the course of toxic testing exposures. Other animals are destroyed at the conclusion of testing.

There are also dreadful mistakes: A lab monkey recently died after getting wedged in faulty lab equipment, and a technician error left other monkeys with burns on their genitals.

JD Vance is responsible for torturing animals while also advocating for a federal abortion ban. Like all MAGA Republicans, he has a death jones with a direct line to his bank account.

So far, the Hillbilly Effigy’s campaign hasn’t responded to Rolling Stone, because he’s a spineless coward. Any response will be weak and full of MAGA propaganda anyway, so please encourage your friends to donate to Tim Ryan.
