The billionaire claims not to have been informed. The campaign team of the former New York mayor
Michael Bloomberg, however, used prisoners to make calls promoting his candidacy
in the presidential election of 2020.
According to the site The Intercept, which reveals the case, it was through one of its suppliers that the team called on a subcontractor, a company managing call centers, two of which are located in prisons in the State of
Oklahoma. Imprisoned men made phone calls for money on behalf of the candidate in at least one of the two prisons, a women's facility, says The Intercept.
The article is correct, recognizes the Democrat
One of the richest men in the world, Michael Bloomberg formalized his candidacy last month. He admitted that the article was correct and announced that he had immediately cut off his relations with the company in question. "We only learned about this when the reporter called us, but as soon as we found out which supplier's subcontractor had done this, we immediately ended our relationship with the company and the people who hired it. ", He said in a statement. "We do not agree with this practice and we will ensure that our suppliers closely examine their subcontractors in the future," he added.
Michael Bloomberg, a centrist, remains far behind the leading trio of Democratic candidates for the time being to do battle with President Donald Trump next November. Former Vice President
Joe Biden and the senators
Bernie Sanders and
Elizabeth Warren still dominates the race for the Democratic nomination.
