Postal police block a Democratic congresswoman from seeing unprocessed mail

Postal police blocked a Democrat om the House Oversight Committee, which is investigating Trump’s postmaster for slowing mail ahead of the election, from two Florida mail sorting facilities where employees say mail sits in bins.

The congresswoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, wanted to inspect the mail facilities after union members alerted her staff about unprocessed mail, according to NBC News (story here).

The appointee, Louis DeJoy, is a Trump donor and crony, whose company has been paid $286 million by the Postal Service since 2013, according to the New York Times (story here). DeJoy ordered mail sorting machines removed, removed mailboxes, eliminated overtime, and imposed other measures that are slowing mail delivery. Democrats believe Trump is gaming the election by trying to block voting by mail, which he has sharply criticized, even though he votes by mail.

There also have been reports from around the country of prescription orders mailed to veterans being held up (story here).

    Undemocratic way to run the country but what can we expect from the Dictator-in-Chief.

    So, this is how the election will be? “Postal” police will block Congress people from viewing the “evidence of hidden undelivered ballots”.

    What a dishonest way to run America. Trump and his followers should be ashamed of themselves, but I understand, neither trump nor his followers have any shame nor conscience. And this is how democracy fails.

    This doesn’t make America great, it makes America wronged.

    True Americans, patriots, and military personnel who have served their country deserve better than this. We all as American voters deserve better than this.

    You shouldn’t be surprised. America has a long history of dirty politics, corruption, and presidents using the office to leverage reelection. It has to be expected, given that Trump cheats at everything, even golf.

    No ballots were harmed….ohh no ballots are in the mail system yet. As long as all mail is handled the same way.

    Are you serious? It’s okay to prevent people from voting if they don’t get their prescriptions either?
