US Postal Service Postmaster General Louis DeJoy never “knowingly” violated political campaign contribution laws, said a spokesman for the postal official on Thursday, amid a current Department of Justice probe.
Last year, two former employees of DeJoy’s former business, New Breed Logistics, told The Washington Post that DeJoy said they would be given large bonuses as reimbursement for a request to issue checks and attend political fundraisers at his mansion. Five previous employees said that they were pushed by DeJoy or his aides to do so.
“Mr. DeJoy has learned that the Department of Justice is investigating campaign contributions made by employees who worked for him when he was in the private sector. He has always been scrupulous in his adherence to the campaign contribution laws and has never knowingly violated them,” DeJoy’s spokesman, Mark Corallo, told the Associated Press.
