FBI Investigating Postmaster General Louis DeJoy for Campaign Finance Law Violations

HeadlineJun 04, 2021

The FBI is investigating whether Postmaster General Louis DeJoy violated federal campaign finance laws during his tenure as the top executive at New Breed Logistics. That’s according to The Washington Post, which previously reported DeJoy pressured former employees at the company into donating to Republican candidates, before paying them back with large bonuses.

DeJoy is a Republican megadonor with no prior Postal Service experience. In 2020, he imposed sweeping operational changes at the U.S. Postal Service that dramatically slowed down mail delivery ahead of the presidential election, when a record number of voters were relying on mail-in ballots due to the pandemic.
