Billionaire, who is also the President of the United States Democratic Party, Michael Bloomberg, said his campaign accidentally used prisoners to make phone calls on his behalf.
Bloomberg, who was elected Democratic presidential candidate last month to challenge President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election, said the campaign has ended his relationship with a company that uses prison inmates to make phone calls.
“We do not endorse this practice, and we will ensure that our designated vendors will better choose their subcontractors”, Bloomberg said.
Listed by Forbes as the eighth-richest U.S. citizen, he spends more time advertising the campaign in recent weeks than any other Democratic Party colleague.
So far he has failed to reach the top of the polls.
