Pro-Trump Super PAC in the news again - Randy Perkins

Randy Perkins is the founder of AshBritt Environmental, a prominent Department of Defense contractor. He donated $500k to America First Action, a pro-Trump super PAC, a day after his company won federal money as part of a large contract.

The same PAC was dubbed “Committee 1” in a federal indictment alleging illegal donations from two Rudy Giuliani associates. Federal contractors are not allowed to donate to political entities. Asked about the donation, Perkins said he had meant to make a personal donation to express his support for specific Trump policies: “I actually think this administration cares deeply about children and mental health issues.”
Perkins has been a regular donor to Republicans for the past 15 years.

He ran unsuccessfully for Congress as a Democrat in 2016.
