If confirmed by the full legislative body, the Dems will have appointed the majority of members of the USPS governing board, which in turn opens the possibility of removing current Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a Republican mega donor & appointee of former President Trump.
DeJoy has given more than $2 million in campaign donations to the Republican Party, including Trump’s 2016 POTUS campaign. Dejoy & his wife, Aldona Wos, reported tens of millions of dollars in assets from companies that are direct competitors to USPS prior to his appointment.
🤬 Even if all three of Biden’s appointments are confirmed, it’s unclear whether DeJoy’s job would actually be on the line, as two Democratic-appointed members of the board have signaled reluctance in recent weeks to fire him.
Board Chairman Ron A. Bloom, a former Obama administration official, and member Lee Moak are the only Democrats on the board of governors, but both have expressed reluctance to dismiss DeJoy.
Moak’s refusal to discuss his position on DeJoy has angered Democrats including Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.), whose office corresponded with Moak in January in what became an “acrimonious” exchange.

Tagging for later
On August 1, 2019, the U.S. Senate approved President Donald Trump’s nomination of Mr. Bloom to the USPS Board of Governors.

Bloom also sat on an Election Mail Committee to oversee the mail-in voting process during the 2020 U.S. General Elections
A January 22, 2013 article in Esquire noted that Bloom recommended 👉against weakening the network by slowing down the mail and cutting Saturday service
DeJoy and board Chairman Ron Bloom, a Democrat, last month debuted a 10-year strategy meant to save the Postal Service from a projected $160 billion loss over the next decade.

Save $$ by degrading USPS services & delivery times which would making business mail turn to UPS.

The sweeping plan would relax the current first-class letter delivery standard of 1-3 days to 1-5 days for mail going to the farthest reaches of the postal network. ⬇️
The plan also includes investments in a ⁉️👉new fleet of delivery vehicles and to consolidate underused post offices + hints at a potential postage rate increase.

Who makes delivery vehicles?
Bloom is a BIG auto union guy.
Democrats have slammed the strategy as an unacceptable degradation of service and have renewed longstanding calls for DeJoy to step down.
I ignored 1st time I read:
Detroit News & a book by Bloom's boss Steven Rattner claimed that @ the Auto Task Force's farewell dinner in July 2009, Bloom of his gov't service: "I did this all for the unions." In Congressional testimony under oath, Bloom denied making the statement
This doesn't seem good. I trust that Biden knows all of this but it makes me nervous.

#CletaMitchell deets

She & her husband are petromob. His dad went from baseball to oil. He was indicted for banking malpractice, required to leave the industry and she turned Republican. She blames regulation but that's not it. She was a staunch Democrat. Their hands are filthy.
She's also twisted evil over her first husband coming out as gay after divorcing. He went on to work in public health for HIV/AIDS research & awareness & died of AIDS.

She furthers her anti-gay rhetoric and policies.
She's a big force in the GOP party.
She's straight up Koch-Russia. Period.

So, Cleta Mitchell who pressured @GaSecofState to find more votes for Trump in a phone call now under investigation for possible RICO is also partnering w/ @GaRepublicans on their anti-democracy, Stop-the-Steal-while-we-steal 2.0 voting bill & 2nd insurrection?

😂Y'all SO busted
Gerry Hebert, who spent over two decades as a senior attorney at the Justice Department’s voting rights section, said in an interview Trump’s actions and words constituted “election interference [and] violated both state law and federal law, and he should be held accountable”.
Mitchell “reportedly interjected multiple times during the call in which she tried to support Trump’s allegations of fraud. Her role in that call may well be part of the investigation" by the GA DA.

Corporations have to use their muscle and choices to expand and protect our access to voting. 👉Many of these corporations exercise vast muscle to pass policies that benefit their bottom line. We should also be looking at the bottom line of protecting our democracy, ⬇️
expanding and protecting access to voting, and to maintain a standard of policing. The world is watching.
