The CEO of Expensify, a software company that developed an expense management system for businesses, made headlines last week for sending his 10 million customers an unsolicited email claiming they are voting against democracy if they support President Donald Trump.
"That's right," Barrett continued, "I'm saying a vote for Trump, a vote for a third-party candidate, or simply not voting at all — they're all the same, and they all mean: 'I care more about my favorite issue than democracy. I believe Trump winning is more important than democracy. I am comfortable standing aside and allowing democracy to be methodically dismantled, in plain sight.'"
The mass email generated significant controversy, and now it appears Expensify is losing customers over Barrett's anti-Trump plea.
"I do have to give my sincere thanks to @dbarrett. He and his company @expensify's misuse of my personal data to send me a pro-Biden spam email prompted me to do some thinking. Turns out we have the capacity to add users to our QuickBooks and dump his product thus saving money," one now-former Expensify user said on Twitter.
"Deleting @expensify and never using them again after their founder/CEO blasted this e mail out to customers this morning," another person said.
