USPS Showdown Boils Over as DeJoy Called to Testify | Vanity Fair

“There’s no way they’re going to get it accurately,” he said, claiming the “number one” problem with mail-in voting is that “you’re never going to know when the election’s over” and predicting that it could take “months” or “years” to know election results.

The consequences of the disruptive policy changes include eliminating overtime and slowing some mail delivery, cutbacks that Democrats say are intended to undermine the USPS’ ability to deliver election ballots in time this fall. As CNN reported, DeJoy is now being scrutinized by the Postal Service Inspector General, who opened an investigation into his policy changes as well his compliance with federal ethics rules. According to Politico, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is mulling whether to bring the House back early to address the USPS crisis, not to provide additional funding but to address organizational issues at the agency ahead of the election.
