And now it can be told:
US Postal Service workers likely delivered more than 99.9% of the nation’s mail ballots in-time to be counted this year, despite record participation and unprecedented pandemic-related challenges. However, it also appears the USPS disenfranchised tens of thousands of voters – who mailed legally-cast ballots the week before the election – through substandard performance.
New postmaster general Louis DeJoy faced months of accusations from critics who claimed dozens of cost-cutting moves he instituted at the USPS this summer were designed to slow down the mail ahead of the election and help the man who appointed him, President Trump. There was a precipitous drop in first-class letter performance following DeJoy’s takeover, and despite a series of lawsuits that forced the USPS to rollback the reforms ahead of the election, the agency’s performance never fully recovered by Election Day. That meant millions of mail ballots took longer than normal to get to elections offices.
The article goes on to say that the disenfranchised voters were all over the country, so no election was likely impacted, but I’m sure that there must be some cliffhangers somewhere who might have grounds for a lawsuit. But I would mosdef add this to the indictment to forcibly remove
this tick Louis DeJoy from office and install him in prison where he belongs.
I hope President-elect Handsome Joe Biden has a plan for saving the USPS. With the exception of the crook DeJoy, they’ve been absolute A+ heroes. They earned and deserve some love from all of us.
