Prior to receiving the job as Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy had contributed nearly $700,000 to the 2020 Republican National Convention, according to new documents obtained by CNN.
“The new filings Friday at the Federal Election Commission from the Charlotte Host Committee show four donations from DeJoy between late December 2018 and late March 2020, totaling $685,230,” reported Fredreka Schouten.
“DeJoy, a North Carolina businessman and Republican mega-donor, was the lead fundraiser for the convention before he was tapped to lead the USPS,” continued the report. “DeJoy’s relationship with President Donald Trump, along with the President’s repeated false claims that mail-in voting is rife with fraud, has sparked allegations that the administration is using the nation’s mail system to sway the election. DeJoy has denied the allegations.”
