Louis DeJoy’s USPS

This story is as much a coinkydink as Rand Paul’s wife buying up Covid-19 medicine stock:

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy purchased up to $305,000 in bonds from an investment firm whose managing partner also chairs the U.S. Postal Service’s governing board, the independent body responsible for evaluating DeJoy’s performance.

Between October and April, DeJoy purchased 11 bonds from Brookfield Asset Management each worth between $1,000 and $15,000, or $15,000 and $50,000, according to DeJoy’s financial disclosure paperwork. Ron Bloom, a Brookfield senior executive who manages the firm’s private equity division, has served on the postal board since 2019 and was elected its chairman in February…

“I’m stuck on DeJoy’s purchase of bonds from the company in which his quasi-boss is a managing partner,” said Kathleen Clark, a law professor who studies government ethics at Washington University in St. Louis, “because I wonder whether it affects Bloom’s ability to protect the public interest in his assessment of DeJoy’s performance as postmaster general.”

Sort of like buying all the Girl Scout Cookies that your boss’ daughter brings into the office, innit?

  1. …while giving your trucking company the contract to carry all those cookies.

    They’re not even trying to hide their corrupt dealings. They really do think this is Gilded Age II:Electronic Money Laundering Boogaloo, don’t they?

    I dislike Dee-no-joy with the heat of a thousand suns and a super-nova to boot.

    On average the Post Office is and has been the best running business organization ever and he is Snidely Whip-lashing his way through the organization that doesn’t allow the President to fire his worthless ass. I want nothing more than to watch his worthless ass bounced down a road filled with cactus and, shall we say, rattlesnakes, scorpions and komodo dragons. Medical assistance upon request. In writing, notarized and reviewed by a panel of Post Office employee’s.

    the end.
