Postmaster General Louis DeJoy conceded on Thursday that he had failed to adequately consult with state election officials on a postcard that was sent to addresses nationwide to educate voters about mail-in ballots.
A federal judge blocked a series of actions implemented by the postmaster-general, calling them “an intentional effort on the part of the current Administration to disrupt and challenge the legitimacy of upcoming local, state, and federal elections.”
For months, the USPS has had a backlog of packages and mail due to the pandemic and cost-cutting measures implemented by Postmaster General DeJoy. For thousands of small-business owners, the damage has already been done. (via @voxdotcom )
Federal judge BLOCKS Postmaster General's 'politically-motivated' cuts
Trump put Postmaster DeJoy in charge of the postal service to dismantle the USPS & sabotage vote by mail. New procedures are causing massive delays. Trump & Repubs don’t believe in free & fair elections. They’ll lie, cheat, & steal to stay in power. We’ve got to fight back!
