Trump’s tame postmaster may not know how much trouble he’s in for “losing” ballots

Drama is building between U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia Emmet Sullivan and Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. The United States Postal Service (USPS) on Tuesday afternoon failed to comply with Judge Sullivan’s order requiring the agency to perform “sweeps” of mail certain processing facilities to verify that all mail-in ballots have been processed. The USPS claimed that it was unable to comply with the order due to a lack of time and personnel to abide by the required terms.

After the USPS filed their response with the court at 4:30 p.m. to report on the matter, Judge Sullivan issued another order. The judge said USPS should be prepared on Wednesday to discuss its “apparent lack of compliance” with the order [emphasis ours]…

Read the article — especially for knowledgable outrage from folks commenting on this screwup by DeJoy. There are 3 possible outcomes suggested by the author and 2 of them include the word “contempt”. 🙂

Post Office Pimp backs down. Think dozens of states cranking up lawsuits helped?

Embattled Postmaster General Louis DeJoy reversed course Tuesday, saying that all changes being made to the Postal Service would be suspended until after the November 3 election, just as 20 Democratic states announced plans to file federal lawsuits.

DeJoy said that some of the deferred decisions mean that retail hours at post offices will not change, mail processing equipment and blue collection boxes will remain in place and no mail processing facilities will be closed.

Apparently, he is neither as stupid nor as arrogant as his boss. That is rather a guarded analysis since the thug-in-chief is just as likely to override this decision as honor it. Trump doesn’t do honorable!

Trump’s postal pimp removes letter sorting machines

U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has reportedly started to remove mail sorting machines from Post Offices across the country.

The process of removing those machines has stoked fears that President Donald Trump and his allies in the executive branch are intentionally sabotaging mail operations in order to diminish the capability of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to sort and deliver mail-in ballots in a timely fashion for the 2020 general election.

Tampering with the mail and federal elections are crimes no matter who does it,” federal criminal defense attorney Tor Ekeland told Law&Crime. “Just because you run the bank doesn’t mean you get to steal the money. This reeks of mail and election fraud–the scheme to defraud using the removal of mail sorting machines without reason as a means to inhibit mail in voting. These are felonies and should be investigated and prosecuted appropriately.”

Trump and his postal pimp should be thrown in jail, right now, for interfering with the accurate and timely distribution of the US Mail. It is a criminal offense. Just because you think you’re the emperor doesn’t make you one.
