Postmaster General Louis DeJoy Under Fire over Reports He Made Employees Donate to GOP Candidates

HeadlineSep 08, 2020

President Trump said Monday he is open to an investigation of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s campaign fundraising, following a recent Washington Post report that said DeJoy’s former employees at New Breed Logistics were pressured into making donations to Republican candidates and then later reimbursed through bonuses — an illegal practice. Trump said DeJoy should lose his job if he did something wrong. DeJoy, who is a Trump megadonor, has come under fire for recent changes at the Postal Service that have caused widespread delays and sparked major concerns over mail-in ballots in November’s election.
