Giants investor Johnson seeks donation refund from Hyde-Smith campaign

Giants investor Charles B. Johnson has written a letter to the campaign of U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith asking that she return $5,400 that Johnson and his wife donated ahead of Tuesday’s runoff election in Mississippi. Johnson, the team’s largest shareholder, issued a statement through attorney Joe Cotchett on Tuesday afternoon that read: “I would like to provide important context related to my political donation to Cindy Hyde-Smith. I was not aware of the controversy surrounding Hyde-Smith when I made the donation. I strongly condemn any form of racism and I have asked for my contribution to be returned. “My political donations are my own personal donations, which have no affiliation with the Giants or any other company.
