Members Of Congress Call For Resignation Of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy
Ahead of Congress’ formal investigation of U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, many members of Congress have taken to Twitter this week to call for his resignation.
These calls come after weeks of accusations that DeJoy has been meddling in the election by making postal service cuts, engaging in illegal straw donor plots and lying to Congress.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Washington) lashed out at DeJoy, saying, “it isn’t just me who wants him gone: it’s the American people.”
DeJoy intentionally sabotaged the USPS, causing delays and attacking the health, voting rights, and economic stability of people across America.

The Postal Board of Governors must suspend Louis DeJoy as Postmaster General while these serious campaign finance allegations are under investigation.

The swamp in action:
DeJoy pressures his employees to make political contributions, and allegedly illegally reimburses them.
Trump appoints him head of USPS, where he degrades mail services that Americans need to vote.
This report demands a full, independent investigation. https://t.co/QhnVrf4glj

Postmaster General DeJoy was never qualified to run @USPS, an agency millions depend on. With new reports that Mr. DeJoy may have lied under oath to Congress, I’m proud that @OversightDems is launching an investigation to hold him accountable.https://t.co/vYcXud4i8F

First, DeJoy corruptly bought his position.
Then, he dangerously sabotaged the Postal Service for his own financial benefit and the benefit of this president—all at the expense of the American people.
Now, he needs to go.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) accused DeJoy of blocking key documents from being obtained by Congress, including a personal calendar.
If the USPS is surprised we are issuing a subpoena, it’s because they weren’t listening.
I said directly in the hearing that if DeJoy didn’t quickly hand over documents, we should issue a subpoena.
They knew the consequences of stalling. Now, where‘s his unaltered calendar? https://t.co/raNrSytmz6
