In September 2018, L Brands CEO Les Wexner and a longtime Republican donor, severed ties with the GOP. But that doesn’t mean he stopped contributing to politicians far and wide.
Still, Wexner has cut the level of his political contributions, according to data from the Federal Elections Commission.
An analysis of Wexner’s $922,300 in state and federal giving over the past three years shows a sharp decline in overall contributions in the past year, along with a broadening of recipients to include more Democrats.
For example, Wexner donated $16,200 over the course of 2019 on the federal level, according to FEC data, compared to $95,900 in 2018 and $557,700 in 2017.
