Michael Bloomberg Confirms He Used Prison Labor To Make 2020 Campaign Calls
(because undocumented labor is not cheap enough for a billionaire)
After a report revealed his campaign exploited prison laborers to make calls on his behalf, Bloomberg said he’s no longer working with the company that hired them.
(Oh noes someone turned on the lights …scurry scurry scurry)
The Bloomberg campaign contracted a call center company named ProCom through a third-party vendor to conduct the calls, according to the report. ProCom operates call centers in New Jersey and Oklahoma, and two of its Oklahoma centers operate out of prisons.
<snip>“The people were required to end their calls by disclosing that the calls were paid for by the Bloomberg campaign,” reporter John Washington wrote. “They did not disclose, however, that they were calling from behind bars.”
(they had to increase the commissary stock too)

Why would anyone be surprised. Bloomberg exploits labor, whether incarcerated or not, at every turn. This is a man used to buying anything he wants since money is never an impediment. He is Trump on steroids and is clearly acting in self-preservation mode as part of the 2020 election cycle. Walking evil.
