Protest held in front of Louis DeJoy's Greensboro mansion

Enemies of democracy will find no sanctuary:

Protesters gathered for about two hours Sunday along the streets below Louis DeJoy's gated property, which overlooks the Greensboro Country Club golf course. They chanted and held signs that read: “Sabotage of the USPS is un-American” and “Save USPS," among other messages, news outlets said.

DeJoy, a Republican fundraiser and major political donor named to lead the Postal Service in May, has sparked a nationwide outcry over postal delays and cutbacks just as millions of Americans prepare to vote by mail to avoid polling places during the coronavirus pandemic.

Methinks Aldona's next dinner party might be a tad uncomfortable. It's fine to punish the peasantry, but don't bring them into the neighborhood. The same thing happened on a larger scale at his DC residence:

The protest gathered at Kalorama Park in Adams Morgan on the corner of Kalorama Road and 19th Street before 9am Saturday before walking to his home where they stayed to demonstrate.

According to WUSA9, some protesters were seen stuffing fake absentee ballots into the Postmaster General's apartment lobby door.

'DeJoy has fired or reassigned much of the existing USPS leadership and ordered the removal of mail sorting machines that are fundamental to the functioning of the postal service. Meanwhile, mail delivery is slowing down under other decisions made by DeJoy, such as eliminating overtime for postal workers,' the group said in a statement.

DeJoy has denied all the allegations that he is acting to aid Trump by slowing down the postal service. 'Despite any assertions to the contrary, we are not slowing down Election Mail or any other mail,' he said last week.

Tell that to Congress, pal. They're waiting.

And DeJoy's denials amount to nothing when his boss says stuff like this:

During an interview on Fox News, Trump said that if USPS does not receive the additional $25 billion funding request that Democrats included in the ongoing stimulus negotiations, then he believes the Post Office won't be able to handle the influx of mail-in ballots in the upcoming election.
"They want three and a half billion dollars for something that'll turn out to be fraudulent, that's election money basically. They want three and a half billion dollars for the mail-in votes. Universal mail-in ballots. They want $25 billion, billion, for the Post Office. Now 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 said, repeating his false claims that mail-in voting would be "fraudulent."

"But if they don't get those two items that means you can't have universal mail-in voting because you they're not equipped to have it," Trump added.

But of course it's not enough to withhold needed funding, you gotta go in there and break stuff.
