 Democrat calls on Biden to fire Trump’s Postal Service board, save the institution
NEW YORK, NEW YORK - AUGUST 05: A woman walks into a Brooklyn Post Office on August 05, 2020 in New York City. The United States Postal Service (USPS), the nation’s national mail carrier service, is under increased scrutiny from politicians who are warning that the agency is not prepared to handle the tens of millions of mail-in ballots which are expected to be sent for the November election. President Trump in recent weeks has called the Postal Service "a joke" as the agency is experiences delays in mail delivery due to the coronavirus pandemic and financial pressures.

Even though the 2020 election wasn’t ruined by sabotage and we now have President Joe Biden, we still have a deeply broke and highly politicized U.S. Postal Service (USPS). Among all the other housecleaning Biden has to do, New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell isn’t going to let him forget about it. The Democrat has written to Biden, urging him to “fire the entire Postal Board of Governors for their silence and complicity in trump and dejoy’s [sic] attempts to subvert the election and destroy the Post Office.”

“Through the devastating arson of the Trump regime, the USPS Board of Governors sat silent,” Pascrell argued in his letter. The Republican board of governors, the creation of Trump and Mitch McConnell, has to go, Pascrell argues, for their “refusal to oppose the worst destruction ever inflicted on the Postal Service” while Postmaster General Louise DeJoy was imposing his changes to cause mail delays and sabotage the service. “The continued challenges in preserving our Postal Service to survive and endure are gargantuan, and so demand bold solutions to meet them,” Pascrell wrote. “To begin that work, we must have a governing body that can be trusted to represent the public interest.”
