Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday he will donate an amount of money that’s equivalent to the contributions accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein made to his campaign in the 1990s.
“While these campaign accounts closed about 20 years ago, and even then the campaign never controlled the two political action committees (PACs), Sen. Schumer is donating an equal sum to anti-sex trafficking and anti-violence against women groups,” Schumer spokesperson Justin Goodman said in a statement to The Hill
The article goes on to state the following:
Federal Election Commission filings compiled by OpenSecrets.org show that Schumer received seven $1,000 donations from Epstein between 1992 and 1997 through several PACs supporting his run for Senate.
Epstein has donated to the campaigns of both major political parties.
