This owner of the company is a major Trump and Repub donor. That's why the company kept getting awarded huge contracts even though they kept fucking up.

Even though he's gone, Trump's incompetence is still hurting the country.

A pharmaceutical contractor under scrutiny for its ties to former government officials could be one of the bottlenecks holding up the production of millions of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. The apparent challenges come amid increased scrutiny of the firm’s Washington connections, including to top Trump pandemic response official Robert Kadlec, and its outsize influence on the Strategic National Stockpile.

The delay also raises questions about Operation Warp Speed, the Trump administration initiative to invest billions in vaccine manufacturing in order to ensure millions of doses were ready to ship immediately upon an FDA green light.

Operation Warp Speed awarded Emergent $628 million in June 2020 to scale up.

Emergent’s ties to former Trump administration officials came under scrutiny when a whistleblower complaint by former Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority Director Rick Bright raised concerns about cronyism impacting multi-million dollar government contracts.

Kadlec, the assistant secretary for preparedness and response in the Trump administration, served as a consultant to Emergent Biosolutions until 2015. From the time Kadlec was confirmed to his federal post in 2017 to the 2020 deal to manufacture COVID-19 vaccines, the biodefense company received more than $1.2 billion from the division Kadlec oversaw.
Purchases of Emergent’s anthrax vaccine comprised more than 40 percent of the stockpile’s budget from 2010 to 2018, The New York Times reported. That left fewer resources for pandemic supplies like N95 masks.

Since 1990, drug companies’ political committees have largely donated to Republican presidential campaigns. But that trend has noticeably reversed come the 2020 election cycle, according to a new report from the Center for Responsive Politics which shows that approximately 51% of total contributions in 2020 from biopharma organizations are being funneled toward Democrats.

Donors affiliated with biopharma companies have contributed $975,685 to the Biden-Harris campaign, according to the report. This is a stark contrast to only $360,548 for President Trump.
Pfizer leads the pact of contributors at $1,128,933 in donations to the Democratic cause in the years 2019 and 2020, whereas a total of $857,781 of donations from Pfizer affiliates have gone to support Republicans. Amgen, which comes second in the lead with a total of $1,288,936 to political causes, has donated $709,809 to Republicans versus $567,275 to Democrats.
AbbVie has also given more money to Democrats compared to Republicans, including funding to a tune of $652,941 compared with $555,567, respectively. AstraZeneca, which is currently in the lead of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccine race, has given a total of $559,696 to political organizations between 2019 and 2020. Approximately $301,480 of this has gone to Democrats and $256,151 has been gifted to Republicans.

And a good thing, too.

If Trump were still in office the whole scandal would have been swept under the rug, and the tainted vaccines would have been distributed anyway.

We need to ramp up quality production of vaccines.  We need to funnel them more money actually to bring them up to speed.  If there's another global pandemic, perhaps worse we need double warp speed, you dumb fuques.
