A Republican operative from Georgia is resigning from the Trump campaign after a scandal involving his campaign software and a plagiarized work from a bookkeeper.
Trump campaign manager Sam Clovis announced Friday that Brian L. Hildebrandt resigned his post as chief of staff and that he would step down from his position as an executive vice president in the campaign.
Hildebrandts software, ERP software, and driver update software are all linked to a book keeper who is now facing criminal charges, according to a news release from the Federal Election Commission.
The news release did not provide further details.
The case is one of several similar accusations against Hildebeests software that has been investigated by the FEC.
Hildebes lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday afternoon.
The software was purchased by the Trump presidential campaign and used for voter registration and other tasks during the 2016 presidential campaign.
It was not clear why Hildebeck had chosen to use it.
He also did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
