Investigate Louis DeJoy's Illegal Campaign Donations

Investigate Louis DeJoy's Illegal Campaign Donations

We, residents of North Carolina and of the rest of the country, many of us current and former USPS employees, urgently request that you immediately commence an official investigation of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy for identified and attested violations of state campaign finance law.

Why is this important?

We are concerned about this issue because of the well-publicized damage DeJoy has done to the United States Postal Service and its employees since assuming the position of Postmaster General. His appointment was evidently a reward for his fundraising efforts, both legal and illegal, on behalf of the Republican Party.

We know that such an investigation will take time, as will preferring charges against him. The sooner, the better, though. PMG DeJoy has already declared his intention to double down on his “Pivot” plan to degrade the capacity of the Postal Service and eliminate union jobs as soon as the election is over. Already, DeJoy’s directives have led to major delays in sorting the people’s mail and made it more difficult for postal workers to carry out their duties. We won't sit idly by as a man who appears to have purchased his title as Postmaster General undermines an essential public service, and the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of American workers in the process.

Maximum pressure, from you, from Congress, from the media, and most of all from all Americans who love the USPS, may well force him from office before that. At the very least, it promises to limit his capacity to continue damaging the People’s Service now--and beyond Election Day.


Reasons for signing

  • to ensure the future of our incredible nationalized mail system and its workers.
  • I rely on the postal service for regularly sending and receiving mail
  • The Post Office is in the US Constitution, Article 1, Section 8. We the people depend on the Postal Service for prescriptions, pay checks, communication with our loved ones, for our ballots in time of pandemic. The postal service is a SERVICE and should be protected, not dismantled for political reasons or for private profit.
