Trump Donor Takes Over As USPS Postmaster General

The Washington Post reports:

The Senate’s top Democrat late Sunday asked the U.S. Postal Service’s governing board to turn over communication with the White House about the appointment of new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a sign that Democrats plan to press the Trump administration on its plans to consolidate control of the nation’s mail service.

Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) wrote to Postal Service board of governors chairman Robert M. Duncan questioning whether DeJoy, a seasoned businessman and top fundraiser for President Trump who took office Monday, was “selected for reasons of politics or patronage” and how he’ll distance himself from the GOP and his vast financial portfolio.

DeJoy spokesman Monty Hagler declined to comment on Schumer’s letter, but told The Post that DeJoy resigned his position with the RNC effective Friday and “will comply with any financial divestitures that are required.”

In addition to his work at a Trump fundraiser, DeJoy has personally donated $2 million to Trump’s campaign.
