More Headlines for PMG DeJoy
9.07.2020 - Multiple news agencies are reporting on a Washington Post article that accuses PMG DeJoy of reimbursing former employees for GOP donations.
DeJoy spokesman Monty Hagler told the Post that DeJoy consulted a former Federal Election Commission general counsel to ensure that he "complied with any and all laws" and that DeJoy was "never notified" about employees feeling pressured, and several employees told the Post on the record they didn't feel pressured and bonuses were "rigid and well-established."
