Postmaster general says he’s pausing changes ‘until after the election’

The postmaster general on Tuesday said he would pause changes to the operations of the Postal Service until after the election amid bipartisan outcry, a sharp reversal after President Trump spent days defending the agency’s actions.

“To avoid even the appearance of any impact on election mail, I am suspending these initiatives until after the election is concluded,” Louis DeJoy said in a statement.

The postmaster general said retail hours at post offices will remain unchanged, mail processing equipment and collection boxes will not be removed and no mail processing facilities will be closed.

On top of that, DeJoy said the agency will employ “stand-by resources,” beginning Oct. 1, “to satisfy any unforeseen demand” surrounding the elections.

What’s a matter, Louie. Afraid your going to get grilled this week and have to tell of all the millions you made from the PO from your XPO Logistics company or about all the Amazon stock options you own. Might say a conflict of interest!!

JUST REMOVE THE IDIOT!

congratulations DeJoy on a decision well made. No closing sorting facilities or taking away mail boxes.
