46 States and DC warned their votes may not arrive in times to be counted.

 

According To MAINE Secretary of State Dunlap, the post office sent him a letter on July 29, warning that ballots should be submitted before October 27 so, they might arrive In time.

 

In the real world wouldn’t this be considered tampering with elections? By the indicted t and his republican cohorts.

 

USPS warns ballots in 46 states andDC

Silly question I know considering 

toad and DOJ Barr and Louis DeJoy are in power with all of their little R disciples but, isn’t this still considered breaking laws.

 

They are impeding the flow of mail, mail-in ballots would need to go in 2weeks earlier than deadline. Basically swinging a bat at the knees of the postal service and handicapping them.

If I’m above ground think I’ll be voting in person or absentee, dropping off ballot at my town clerks office.

 

Otherwise it will have to be posted 2 weeks before election.
Hand sorting to delay every piece of mail/pkg. within the system.

 

Re: Pain inflicted they don’t care, neighbor vet 2-week delay on med’s, he’s only 99* and former Republican. *Age correction WW2 Vet.

 

FedEx from WalMart no better, dropped pkg. under his ramp.

Had to pickup for him.

VOTE THEM OUT

THEN

LOCK THEM UP!

 


tRump supporters will accept and support anything that tRump does, including interfering with the election and destroying the USPS.

Again, it is all about the choice of method used to mail something.

If (whomever) wants priority service, they have to pay for it - they cannot pay for the cheap bulk, business, marketing rates and expect 1st class or higher handling.

 

In this pandemic period that we are in, bulk / marketing mailing is way down - thus the decommissioning of some of the sorters used for this type of mailing.  If one gets destroyed in this type of mailing, there isn't any special handling by the USPS - it is just "file 13ed" - perhaps returned in bulk to the sender only so they can see how many they have that were not issued.

 

Higher class mail (at a higher price paid ) goes thru different sorter - those that affix a postmark, those that require special handling if one gets destroyed.

 

Now which type would you think an election ballot should be mailed??


Are you telling us that taking sorting machines out of Post Offices and throwing them away is ok. These machines are the quickest and cheapest way to sort mail.

The reason they are doing this is to stop mail voting. They are also removing mail boxes. Over 50% in one city.

None of what you posted has anything to do with what really happened.

I think if Trump and his lapdog Postmaster, who has no experience in running the Post Office want to " fix " the Post Office, they can do it in 2021.

The removal of these very necessary mail sorting machines around the country is an act of war against the American people's RIGHT to vote in an unobstructed, fair, and free election.  This is right in keeping with Donald Trump's determination to "slow down" the postal delivery service.  Just like he said to "slow down testing" for COVID-10 in order to get better "numbers" in the death count.  So this is his effort to slow down the mail in order to get the result he wants in this coming election which means a win for him.

 

Scandalous!  Outrageous!  Criminal!

Save the Postal Service - Mail sorting equipment stripped.

‘These Are Felonies’: Lawyers React with Horror to Reports of Post Office Removing Mail Sorting Machines

 

U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has reportedly started to remove mail sorting machines from Post Offices across the country.

 

 

The process of removing those machines has stoked fears that President Donald Trump and his allies in the executive branch are intentionally sabotaging mail operations in order to diminish the capability of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to sort and deliver mail-in ballots in a timely fashion for the 2020 general election.

 

 

“Tampering with the mail and federal elections are crimes no matter who does it,” federal criminal defense attorney Tor Ekeland told Law&Crime. “Just because you run the bank doesn’t mean you get to steal the money. This reeks of mail and election fraud–the scheme to defraud using the removal of mail sorting machines without reason as a means to inhibit mail in voting. These are felonies and should be investigated and prosecuted appropriately.”

 

 

According to Vice News‘s Aaron Gordon, union officials and postal workers say that “facilities around the country” are being stripped of mail sorting machines “without any official explanation or reason.”

 

 

The outlet claims 19 such machines have been decommissioned–or will be decommissioned in the immediate future–from at five mail processing facilities. And apparently none of the day-to-day workers or leadership have been given any clue about what’s going on.

Per that report:

 

 

Even to local union officials, USPS has not announced any policy, explained why they are doing this, what will happen to the machines and the workers who use them. Nor has management provided a rationale for dismantling and removing the machines from the facility rather than merely not operating them when they’re not needed.

“I’m not sure you’re going to find an answer for why [the machines being removed] makes sense,” said Iowa Postal Workers Union President Kimberly Karol, “because we haven’t figured that out either.”

 

With a likely unprecedented upsurge in vote-by-mail due to the still raging novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic this fall, the prospect of displacing the machines used to sort those incoming ballots without notice or explanation quickly drew condemnations and concern that DeJoy’s actions were somehow not above-board.

 

 

Who knows whether this has benign reasons,” mused Civil Rights attorney and administrative law expert Sasha Samberg-Champion. “But at this point, we can’t assume anything is on the up-and-up.

 

 

Westchester County District Attorney candidate Mimi Rocah (D), a former federal prosecutor, was similarly askance that there was any good excuse here.

 

 

“If this is being done at the direction or suggestion of the President to intentionally slow or minimize voter participation, in other words to sabotage the election, then it’s a clear abuse of Presidential power,” she said in an email. “Congress must act and the press must hold elected Republicans accountable for not stopping this.”

 

 

Many critics believe the report is clear-cut evidence of a White House plan to manufacture an enforced shortage of such machines–all in order to intentionally frustrate the USPS’s ability to accommodate the likely millions of mail-in ballots that will be cast by voters.

 

 

“If you can’t see what’s happening here, I don’t know what to tell you,” CNN legal analyst Elie Honig, a former federal and state prosecutor, told Law&Crime. “Trump has made clear that he will pull every lever of power available to him – legal, borderline, or illegal – to prevent mail-in balloting this fall.”

 

 

The 45th president has repeatedly rubbished mail-in voting and recently said he intends to resist Democratic Party demands for increased USPS funding–directly linking the intentional effort to starve the agency of money with his administration’s longstanding desire to keep fewer people from voting by mail.

 

 

“They need that money in order to make the Post Office work, so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots,” Trump told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning–in reference to congressional demands for $25 billion in additional funding for the USPS. “[T]hat means you can’t have universal mail-in voting, because they’re not equipped.”

National security attorney Bradley P. Moss urged caution.

 

 

“Although there could very well be entirely legitimate bases for taking these actions, the current political environment – and particularly the public remarks by the president – warrant serious caution and the need for a clearer explanation from the USPS,” he said in an email. “The sanctity of the voting process is paramount.”
