Former employees of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said they felt pressured to make political contributions to GOP candidates while working for his former business, The Washington Post reported.
Several people who worked under or were familiar with DeJoy at his former business New Breed Logistics, a supply chain company, told the Post that DeJoy asked employees to donate to GOP fundraisers in return for bonus payments to make up for the costs.
