@#1 ... Why isn't Dejoy in DePrison yet? ...

Postmaster DeJoy is appointed by the Postal Regulatory Commission.

The commission currently is a 3-2 majority of Trump appointees. Appointees have six year terms.

In October 2022, Pres Biden will be able to appoint two commissioners to replace Trump appointees, with Senate approval.

Until then, it looks like Postmaster DeJoy will continue his [conflict of interest] reign of destruction upon the Postal Service.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy didn't mince words when asked during a congressional hearing six months ago how long he planned to keep his job.

"A long time. Get used to me," he said. "As far as my commitment to see our plan through, I'm here until I can see it tangibly produce the results we intended to."

...

Bloom is a Democrat but has repeatedly said he supports DeJoy. Bloom is also a veteran financier and a managing partner at Brookfield Asset Management. DeJoy, according to financial disclosures, has invested in a relatively modest portfolio of Brookfield bonds.

DeJoy isn't going anywhere.

Democrats are just as corruptible as Republicans.

"Democrats are just as corruptible as Republicans."

That is simply not true. Not even close to true.

There is no Democrat that rivals the corruption of Moscow Mitch. There has been no President as corrupt as Trump ever.

People by nature are susceptible to corruption.

Just because Republicans hang "for sale" signs around their necks.

Doesn't means Democrats are pure as snow.

Looks like the plan is for the USPS to stop delivering mail entirely before the next election.

Part of the problem is the pathetic contract the USPS made with Amazon which is overwhelming the postal system.

When I mentioned "conflict of interest" in #3, I was thinking more along the lines of...

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy Should Resign Over Obvious Financial Conflicts Of Interest,' Experts Testify (Sept 2020)
www.forbes.com

...Postmaster General Louis DeJoy's financial holdings in former employer XPO Logistics and other private sector firms are an "enormous" financial conflict of interest that should result in his resignation or firing, experts testified to a House Oversight subcommittee Monday, as scrutiny has intensified into possible campaign finance violations before DeJoy arrived at the U.S. Postal Service and how his ties to the private sector and GOP might affect his work as postmaster general....

The article goes on to detail some of the conflicts of interest, conflicts of interest that may show why he wants to cripple the US Postal Service, a possible competitor of his investments.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy Should Resign Over Obvious Financial Conflicts Of Interest,' Experts Testify

These conflicts of interest were known prior to his nomination.

He was seated as post master general in order to destroy the USPS.

Much like everyone else in Trump's cabinet.

Head of Exxon in charge of the EPA.

DeVos in charge of education for the poor.

Putin gave Trump one task, destroy America.

Trump got him half way. 2024 will seal the deal.
