Internal Docs Show USPS Knew Decline Was Worsening

The Washington Post reports:

House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) released internal U.S. Postal Service documents that show steeper declines in on-time deliveries than lawmakers had previously been told.

The drop in service standards since early July is across all categories of mail, including priority mail, periodicals, marketing and first class, the documents show.

“After being confronted on Friday with firsthand reports of delays across the country, the Postmaster General finally acknowledged a ‘dip’ in service, but he has never publicly disclosed the full extent of the alarming nationwide delays caused by his actions and described in these new documents,” Maloney said in a statement.
