House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement Wednesday that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy “frankly admitted” to her that he does not intend to fully reverse changes made to the U.S. Postal Service that have resulted in widespread mail delays and sowed fear about the election, despite the postmaster general saying Tuesday he would temporarily pause the controversial changes through the election.
===========================================

Pelosi said DeJoy told her in a conversation Wednesday that “he had no intention of replacing the sorting machines, blue mailboxes and other key mail infrastructure that have been removed” and would not re-implement “adequate overtime” for mail workers, even though overtime cuts implemented earlier this summer have reportedly exacerbated the mail delays.


The House Speaker reiterated that the House will vote Saturday on legislation aimed at reversing DeJoy’s changes and giving the USPS $25 billion in funding, and the House will also hear testimony Monday from DeJoy and USPS Board of Governors chairman Robert Duncan.

“The Postmaster General’s alleged pause is wholly insufficient and does not reverse damage already wreaked,” Pelosi said, adding that his changes “directly jeopardize the election and disproportionately threaten to disenfranchise voters in communities of color.”
