Warren Rips USPS Board For 'Acting As Accomplices to DeJoy' As He Sabotages Mail Delivery, Election

'Warren Rips USPS Board Members for 'Acting as Accomplices to DeJoy' as He Sabotages Mail Delivery- & the Election. Common Dreams, Oct. 28, 2020.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday blasted members of the U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors for "acting as accomplices" to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy while he sabotages the mail—and, as a result, the election—after the panel rejected her request for financial disclosure filings and refused to commit to reversing DeJoy's destructive policy changes. "The USPS Board of Governors has refused to release information about their own financial ties and has doubled down on their support of Louis DeJoy," the Mass. Democrat said in a statement.

"Once again, I call on the board members to release their financial disclosure forms, remove DeJoy, and do their jobs by reversing DeJoy's actions."

In August, as Common Dreams reported, Warren sent a letter demanding that the 6 members of the Board of Governors—all of whom were appointed by President Donald Trump—release their federal financial disclosure documents so lawmakers and the public could determine whether they "have investments or outside responsibilities that potentially pose conflicts of interest." But in a letter (pdf) to Warren dated last week, USPS Board of Governors Chairman Robert Duncan—who previously served as chairman of the Republican National Committee—said the board

"respectfully declines to publicly release the financial disclosures of its individual members," citing ethics regulations that exempt so-called Special Government Employees from financial disclosure requirements.

In a separate letter (pdf) released by Warren's office Wednesday, Duncan made clear that the board has no intention of removing DeJoy—a Republican megadonor to Trump—or working to reverse his operational changes that caused major and persistent mail delays across the country, intensifying concerns about mass disqualification of ballots that arrive late due to no fault of the voter.

Tweet, Sen. Warren Aug. 24. Board's “full support” of Louis DeJoy’s efforts to delay and degrade mail service raises serious questions about its members' motivations. DeJoy has stock in Amazon & USPS competitors – we should know if the USPS Board has conflicts affecting their actions too...

2. From everything I've read, the main reason the PO is still failing is because the highspeed

sorting machines DeJoy had removed must be reinstalled for them to get there. Some may have been damaged & must be fixed or replaced before reinstall. The REAL person to "rip apart" is DJT! It was his idea to damage the PO to enable HIM to win reelection!

4. Those machines

are huge. They cost many tens of thousands of dollars and can take many days to set up and get them up and running—working out computer system problems on them that may occur. Yes this is all on trump. It was his idea to throw out millions of dollars worth of machines that process our mail. I also blame dejoy for implementing this plan.

5. Question: Can Biden fire the entire board and DeJoy on Day 1? Anyone know for sure?
