DeJoy may have bribed his way into being Postmaster GeneralPosted by Robert Leonard / September 16, 2020
Last week (was it only a week ago?) legal experts called into question DeJoy’s fundraising practices––which made him into a powerful enough player in the GOP to get this appointment was Postmaster General––may have been incredibly illegal.
This may slow Trump and his supporters’ attempt to dismantle the post office, which is going full steam ahead. Internal documents show that the USPS is planning to remove nearly 700 high-speed sorting machines. The USPS is literally removing mailboxes in Oregon. Trump has openly admitted that he’s trying to limit mail-in voting, citing his usual unsupported claims of voter fraud. Louis DeJoy also sacked key Post Office officials and is threatening to cut spending dramatically, which would prove disastrous for the 2020 election. Postal service workers are supporting Biden.
But watchdog groups are keeping a close eye on the Post Office, and that seems to be helping. After an incredible amount of backlash following their removal of mailboxes in Oregon, the USPS has stopped removing mailboxes. So keep the pressure up if you’re concerned about the post office. Buy a book of stamps! If half of all Americans bought stamps the USPS would be in great shape.
