Pat Robertson, 1993
At this time, Pat was financially tied to genocidal Liberian dictator Charles Taylor, using this friendship to open mines that were run on slave labour. He used Operation Blessing aircraft and money to ship mining equipment whilst telling viewers that he was shipping aid to Rwanda. Later on, he attacked Bush for offering a reward for the capture of Robertson's despotic Baptist bro.
Also, during this timeframe, Robertson owned a mining concern in Zaire, forming a close friendship with their dictator, Mobutu Sese Seko. Naturally, Robertson's ADC also used slave labour in these mines, and again using Operation Blessing aircraft on almost 40 occasions.
Seems like the guy should know more about the definition of wholesale abuse, considering he had a front-row seat.
