NEW YORK, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Investment bank Goldman Sachs banned its high-ranking executives from contributing to the Trump-Pence election campaign, among other races.
The directive, sent September 1 to about 450 of the firm's partners from its government compliance department, forbids donations to "any federal candidate who is a sitting state or local official." It specifically mentions that the rule applies to any "governor running for president or vice president, such as the Trump/Pence ticket." Mike Pence, Donald Trump's vice presidential running mate on the Republican ticket, is the governor of Indiana. Donations to Trump and Pence's PACs and Super PACs supporting them are also banned.
