Sept 7 (Reuters) - Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives have called for the immediate suspension of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy as they launch an investigation into his testimony to lawmakers, the Washington Post newspaper said wapo.st/328T3E1 on Monday.
The paper quoted Carolyn Maloney, the Democratic chairwoman of the Oversight and Reform Committee, as saying the committee will start an investigation, adding that DeJoy may have lied to it under oath.
The move follows accusations that DeJoy reimbursed former employees for campaign contributions to his preferred Republican politicians, an arrangement that would be unlawful. (Reporting by Kanishka Singh in Bengaluru; Editing by Clarence Fernandez)
