POST OFFICE POLITICS:
House Oversight and Reform Committee ChairwomanCarolyn Maloney, (D-N.Y.) fresh off a narrow primary victory where the results were delayed for weeks to count mail ballots,introduced legislation on Tuesdaythat would block the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) from implementing a series of proposed changes amid the coronavirus pandemic.
There is expected to be a surge of mail and absentee balloting in November. Democrats are worried that the Trump administration, and new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, are taking steps to slow the delivery of mail ahead of November to sow confusion and potentially delay election results.
