A jaw-dropping investigative report from the Washington Post has exposed Senator Thom Tillis as “one of the biggest beneficiaries” of an alleged “straw-donor scheme” led by the current USPS Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, who Tillis has refused to hold accountable for delays in veterans’ prescriptions and other mail delivery service interruptions.
Tillis has banked “nearly $300,000” from a corrupt fundraising maneuver that appears to have violated state and federal campaign finance laws and been orchestrated by DeJoy, the Republican mega-donor and former corporate executive who’s currently mismanaging the Postal Service. Despite the service reductions that have delayed the mail delivery of veterans’ prescriptions and other essentials to North Carolinians, Tillis has refused to hold his major donor accountable.
The same goes for Senators Lindsey Graham and Martha McSally and failed politician John James, who have all taken thousands of dollars in political contributions from DeJoy but refuse to take action on the alarming USPS changes that are causing widespread delays in delivery of critical mail for their constituents and threaten to disenfranchise millions of Americans in the November election.
“Senator Tillis is at the center of a corrupt straw-donor scheme, and under the influence of those campaign dollars, he refuses to demand answers or action from the Postmaster General in the face of severe mail delivery disruptions to North Carolinians,” said DSCC spokesperson Stewart Boss. “This is exactly why voters do not trust Senator Tillis, have given him low marks on doing his job, and will vote him out in November.”
