DAGA Co-Chairs Statement on DeJoy Campaign Contribution Scheme Allegations
September 6, 2020
WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) Co-Chairs Massachusetts AG Maura Healey and Oregon AG Ellen Rosenblum released the following statement in response to the Washington Post investigation alleging that U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy pressured employees at his former business, New Breed Logistics, into political contributions and later reimbursed them.
Statement from Massachusetts AG Maura Healey and Oregon AG Ellen Rosenblum, Co-Chairs of the Democratic Attorneys General Association:
“The allegations that Postmaster DeJoy engaged in an extensive scheme to violate federal and state campaign finance laws are profoundly troubling. If true, they call into question DeJoy’s leadership and compliance with the law yet again, this time revealing a pattern of potentially criminal misconduct. This matter will require time to resolve—time that DeJoy does not have with the election just 60 days away. Postmaster DeJoy should immediately step aside, pending an independent investigation.”
