DeJoy defends actions: Postmaster grilled by Democratic-led panel

Appearing before politicians, US Postmaster General Louis DeJoy defended his decision to introduce cost-saving measures to the USPS ahead of November’s poll.

The US postmaster general has assured Congress the operational changes to the postal service will not affect mail-in voting for this year’s presidential election.

Louis DeJoy was back before Congress on Monday, this time before a House panel investigating recent delays in deliveries.
