Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer met with Lord Damp Nut’s new henchman Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and put in writing his confirmation (Fair Warning! PDF) that he had instituted “reductions of overtime availability, restrictions on extra mail transportation trips, testing of new sorting and delivery policies at hundreds of Post Offices, and the reduction of the number and use of processing equipment at mail processing plants.”
The result of which “now threaten the timely delivery of mail — including medicines for seniors, paychecks for workers, and absentee ballots for voters.”
As Scissorhead MDavis says, deliberately slowing down the mail is illegal, but I would not hold my breath that AG Bill Barr is going to take action against a co-conspirator in the overthrow of (allegedly) our gubmint.
But can this crook (his portfolio is stuffed with conflicts of interest) hide behind plausible deniability? He’s a business guy trying to run the USPS (a service) like a business:
“Postmaster General Louis DeJoy unveiled a sweeping overhaul of the nation’s mail service, displacing the two top executives overseeing day-to-day operations, according to a reorganization memo released Friday. The shake-up came as congressional Democrats called for an investigation of DeJoy and the cost-cutting measures that have slowed mail delivery and ensnared ballots in recent primary elections.
“Twenty-three postal executives were reassigned or displaced, the new organizational chart shows. Analysts say the structure centralizes power around DeJoy, a former logistics executive and major ally of President Trump, and de-emphasizes decades of institutional postal knowledge. All told, 33 staffers included in the old postal hierarchy either kept their jobs or were reassigned in the restructuring, with five more staffers joining the leadership from other roles.
“The reshuffling threatens to heighten tensions between postal officials and lawmakers, who are troubled by delivery delays — the Postal Service banned employees from working overtime and making extra trips to deliver mail — and wary of the Trump administration’s influence on the Postal Service as the coronavirus pandemic rages and November’s election draws near.”
It’s happening out in the open, people. They are stealing the election before it is even held.
