V.I. Delegate to Congress Stacey Plaskett says she no longer feels comfortable accepting contributions from financier Jeffrey Epstein, who has been a registered sex offender since 2008.

“In light of new information and allegations that have been made against Jeffrey Epstein, I have decided to make contributions to Virgin Islands organizations that work with women and children in the amount of his previous contributions,” Plaskett said in a statement.
