Louis DeJoy Pull Postal Cops Off The Streets, Two Weeks Before The Election 22.10.2020 Crooks Liars
A strange order by the U.S. Postal Service to pull its uniformed police officers meant to protect the security of the mail off the streets, sparking a lawsuit. Via MarketWatch: The agency’s unilateral order ended daily patrols meant to prevent robberies of blue collection boxes and mail vehicles, and has left letter carriers without escorts on unsafe routes in some of the nation’s biggest cities, according to interviews with police officers and union representatives opposed to the change and a copy of the directive, titled “Postal Police Utilization,” reviewed by the Wall Street Journal. Mail thieves, in the past, often targeted mail for credit cards and checks. Now, the postal police officers said the fear is that thieves also will get ballots, which could be ditched.

Disclosure: C&L and Blue America PAC have used ActBlue for many years as our online fundraising tool. Now that Lindsey Graham has been completely overwhelmed by Democratic challenger Jamie Harrison's fundraising prowess in the South Carolina US Senate race, Graham claims the left-wing internet fundraising tool ActBlue needs to be reviewed by Congress. If Graham had any pride in himself he'd be embarrassed, but he does not. And it's so typical of Republicans to hold sham investigations to hold on to power. After begging for campaign donation scraps on Fox News , and illegally in the halls of Congress, in the final stretch Graham is whining and moaning like a wounded animal. “Where’s all this money coming from ActBlue coming from? How easy would it be to just have a bunch of pre-paid credit cards?” he asked The Hill. It's coming from small donors and donations, Senator Graham. And you know this. But maybe a fake investigation will turn things around for you. An ActBlue representative responded to ...
