Uh oh…check out the following from the Democratic Party of Virginia:
Virginia GOP took money from corrupt Trump fundraiser Louis DeJoy
Richmond, VA — A bombshell new report from the Washington Post yesterday revealed that Donald Trump’s Postmaster General Louis DeJoy operated a corrupt straw-donor scheme in which he reimbursed his employees for political donations to Republican candidates using company funds when he was CEO of New Breed Logistics. According to the Post, “DeJoy would instruct that bonus payments to staffers be boosted to help defray the cost of their contributions, an arrangement that would be unlawful.”
DeJoy used his employees to magnify his status as a Republican fundraiser, and financial disclosure records show the Republican Party of Virginia benefited from DeJoy’s money. During the 2016 election cycle, DeJoy made six separate donations totaling over $8,000 to the Virginia GOP.
Apart from his potentially illegal donation scheme, DeJoy has been at the center of the Trump administration’s attempts to sabotage the Postal Service in order to disrupt the election. After assuming the role of Postmaster General earlier this year, DeJoy implemented cost-cutting measures that created dangerous backlogs in mail delivery, threatening the delivery of absentee ballots, medications, and more.
“It might be difficult to top Scott Pruitt and Ben Carson using their offices for personal gain, but after trying to disrupt the Postal Service to satisfy Donald Trump and running a donation scheme to elect his Republican friends, Louis DeJoy has proven himself to be one of the most corrupt appointees of this administration. The Virginia GOP should reject this blatant corruption by returning his money. And Nick Freitas, Scott Taylor, Bob Good, Daniel Gade, and every other Republican candidate should refuse the state party’s help until they do,” said DPVA Communications Director Grant Fox.
