2. Hilarious (maybe) in light of what Trump's Postbastard General is doing.

Same article:

Under the leadership of the new postmaster general, Trump loyalist Louis DeJoy, USPS is seeing a slowing of mail delivery in some places. The agency has recently implemented new efforts that workers blame for delivery delays of at least two days across the country -- prompting fears that many ballots may not reach election offices in time if the problems aren't corrected by November.

In a letter to Congress released Monday, an attorney for USPS argued that an internal memo obtained by CNN advising postal workers of an end to late trips and extra trips did not originate from postal service headquarters and should "not be treated as official statements of Postal Service policy."

But the letter -- dated July 22 and sent in response to a congressional inquiry about service changes at the USPS -- does confirm the USPS is taking "immediate steps to increase operational efficiency by re-emphasizing existing operational plans." It also makes the case that these efforts are "clearly within the legal authority of the Postmaster General" and do not require approval from Congress of the USPS Board of Governors, every member of which is now a Trump appointee.
