President Joe Biden is making moves to fix the United States Postal Service, starting with ousting Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, who sabotaged the mail in a scheme to help disgraced former President Donald Trump rig the 2020 Election.

Trump installed DeJoy in May 2020, who immediately enacted measures designed to suppress mail-in ballots, including the removal of hundreds of mail collection boxes and the dismantling of mail sorting machines among many others.

DeJoy is the main reason why mail service in this country has been slower than normal, and his investments in private mail carriers is a conflict of interest that means he will likely profit the more he sabotages the Postal Service from within.

Unfortunately, Biden cannot fire DeJoy outright, but he can fill vacancies on the Board of Governors so that they will have the power to remove DeJoy and nominate a new Postmaster General.

“Only the Board of Governors of the US Postal Service has the power to replace the Postmaster General,” the White House said in a statement. “The President can, however, nominate governors to fill vacancies on the board pending Senate confirmation. President Biden’s focus is on filling these vacancies, nominating officials who reflect his commitment to the workers of the US Postal Service — who can deliver on the post office’s vital universal service obligation.”

All the Democratic majority Senate needs to do is confirm all of Biden’s nominees as soon as possible and our nation will be able to have a functioning Postal Service again with competent leadership at the helm.

Biden has been cleaning house ever since he first took office last month. Many Trump appointees have been unceremoniously canned in the name of sweeping Trumpism from our government. So far, he is succeeding. Ousting DeJoy would be a bonus.
