If I told you fake-postmaster general Louis DeJoy lied under oath about an election-fraud crime, would that surprise you?
I’m guessing not.
USPS Board of Governors turned tightrope-cartwheels to install DeJoy, despite availability of MANY other qualified candidates. Makes you wonder if his willingness to break laws was a plus in his favor .
Election fraud is like *their* thing after all
"A review of campaign finance records shows that over a dozen management-level employees at [DeJoy's company] would routinely donate to the same candidate on the same day, often writing checks for an identical amount of money"https://t.co/Yl5ebTiYvo

Setting aside how Washington Post waited until the 13th paragraph to note DeJoy’s actions are illegal, this piece is a bombshell.
He would ask employees to make contributions at the same time that he would say, ‘I’ll get it back to you down the road,’ said the former employee, who, like others interviewed for this report, spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retribution from DeJoy.
Straw-donor scheme is what sent felonious cretin Dinesh D’Souza to prison so yeah, that’s completely illegal. As mafia figures do, DeJoy offered an un-denial non-denial that’s essentially day-old word salad. But no worries, they cleared it ahead of time!
Hagler said DeJoy ‘sought and received legal advice’ from a former general counsel for the Federal Election Commission to ensure that he, New Breed Logistics and any person affiliated with New Breed fully complied with any and all laws
open-source reporting suggests @MontyHagler is "unaffiliated with USPS" which struck me as odd

WaPo doesn’t name former general counsel but I’m assuming he or she will be named soon enough. That “Hagler” chap would be Monty Hagler, whom we’re fairly certain isn’t associated with USPS, which led me to send a series of questions to him so we can clear up confusion. No reply since this morning.
What’s it all add up to?
In very real terms DeJoy has already earned his keep. He’s dismantled sorting machines and tossed others in the trash; he shit-canned USPS executives with long tenures; and even went to dramatic lengths to slow down the mail. My next avenue of inquiry is finding out why Board of Governors was so keen on this guy, when literally *any* due-diligence would’ve uncovered the straw-donor scheme.
VOTE IN PERSON. NOV 3.

I’ll stay on the story. Meantime have a look at past issues below on this same topic. The fix is in and I’d not be surprised if DeJoy ends up being the fall guy. Proving once again loyalty to Tangerine Nixon is NEVER returned.
