Louis DeJoy (probably the one person right now more hated than Trump) spent his weekend taking to the stand in an effort to quell complaints of mail fraud. For those who haven’t quite been following the story just yet, let’s bring everybody up to speed.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy testifies Friday

Earlier this month, it was announced that DeJoy had secretly implemented a series of changes that eventually began resulting in the removal of community mailboxes across the U.S (the blue ones.) Those changes, per DeJoy, were allegedly part of initial cost-cutting efforts in an effort to materialise revenue from the USPS.

The problem with that is that along with that change came: cutting of overtime, reduction of mail sorting machines, and a crackdown on general employee hours and wages. Coupling them all together, at least to the conscious American eye, it appeared that DeJoy was setting the USPS up for intentional failure.

Those changes actually got the attention of House Democrats who this weekend ordered DeJoy to the Capital to testify amid the backdrop of claims he is using the USPS to essentially commit a major crime.

Here’s the latest development.

In his testimony, DeJoy denies claims that his many changes were ever part of a scheme to help the Trump Administration. However, at a time that Americans are more polarised than ever before the appearance of such at a time in which mail-in ballots are coming — didn’t sit well with the ordinary American.

“The Postal Service is fully capable and committed to delivering the nation’s election mail securely and on time,” Louis DeJoy testified at a Senate hearing.

“As we head into the election season, I want to assure this committee and the American public that the Postal Service is fully capable and committed to delivering the nation’s election mail securely and on time,” DeJoy testified in front of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. “This sacred duty is my number one priority between now and Election Day.”

“I think the American public should be able to vote by mail,” he said, and committed to delivering at least 95% of election mail in one to three days, the same rate as the 2018 election.

DeJoy maintains that he didn’t know about the collection box removals.
