I thought they were planning to prosecute him for intentionally delaying the mail and/or conflicts of interest over his shares in rival orgs

Even if they lost the case, they could 'suspend' him pending resolution of the case(s) and put someone else in charge

I sure hope no one nails that bellend into a crate and tries to mail him somewhere. That would be awful.

/awful hilarious

Why is he allowed to still be there? Isn't he being investigated? If not, why not? Why is this happening?
 
2021-03-04 2:41:14 PM  
Are we stuck with him? Why is he still there?

I get that Biden can't outright fire him, but at least make him personally greet every visitor to the post office in Gnome, Alaska until that day comes.

Still no idea why he's not been removed yet.

It's always been about the grift.

Hurting the post office will generate revenue for him down the road.

They have to vote him out, and there are three vacancies on the panel. Right now, it's all Republicans left, I believe. So... it'll take time to get the new people in, and vote this chode out.

At least it's not the PTT (Post, Telephone, Telegraph) kind of internet provider lots of other countries have. Yet.  Throw in the power grid and one man (appointed for life) has the ability to f*ck an entire country just to amuse his friends.

For a similar reason that he can't fire you. He does not have the authority to do so. what he CAN do is nominate people to a group of people who choose the post master. He's made the nominations and now they're just waiting to get everyone approved. Once that's done, DeJoy will be voted out by the board of governors or whatever.
 
2021-03-04 2:49:03 PM  
Oh great. So my relatives in PA will get Christmas cards on Valentine's Day instead of New Year's then?

I think the position was designed so the president couldnt easily remove a person in order to avoid politicizing the position. LOL oops!

"WHY HASN'T HE BEEN FIRED YET??!!"

-Biden can't directly fire him, only the Postal Board can.
-Right now the board is packed with Trump stooges that will not fire him.
-Getting rid of current board members is a slow and complicated process.
-Biden has nominated 3 new members of the board, but nominees require Senate approval.

There you go.

How st5upid are we?

So stupid that of course anyone that proclaims they do not belvei in god,. and thinks the church just fooks up people's lives or all its interfering, is not going to get a job working for a church/religious based business.
Duh and Duh we know and accept this as reasonable.

And yet an jack rag drip that openly declares they do not believe in govt and that govt just fooks up people's lives for interfering....why do they get to get govt jobs? Why are they not assumed to not be able to get a job in govt.?

Because Post Mastere General isn't a Cabinet position.  The President can't just fire him at will.  The Post Office has been this weird fusion of private business and government agency since the 70s.  As such, the PMG is not appointed by the President.  The President appoints members to a board - and then they appoint a PMG.  POTUS also can't just fire him for the raw funsies.  The PMG can be removed for being a bad boy - but you have to show he's a bad boy, not just declare it by fiat.

Jesus fark, you people are psychotic.  The Republicans go to break government - and then you rush in and want to finish the job.  Because you have no farking self-control - just a gaping maw of unfillable immediate need. But, hey, you are so pure and rape-righteous that when everything burns, you got to jack yourself raw - and that's all that matters to you.  Farking children.

William Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!
Sir Thomas More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
William Roper: Yes, I'd cut down every law in England to do that!
Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!

Can he not remove him for malfeasance or just cause, or is it unilateral?

Does his head not roll?

Looks round enough.
 
2021-03-04 2:56:23 PM  
He can't fire DeJoy, but he can fire the BOG for cause, and I would say the Post Office's recent performance constitutes cause. If I were Joe, I'd call the BOG and tell them either they or DeJoy will be unemployed as of tomorrow ...and it's entirely up to them who will be reading the Help Wanted ads this weekend.

I see zero people in here asking why he hasn't been fired.

I see a number of people asking why he's allowed to continue acting in his role given that he should be under investigation and removed from his role until the investigation is over.

"Does it make a difference if it's an extra day to get a letter?" he said.
Yes it does, you farking idiot. It's the difference between medication currently taking 1-2 days and 2-4 weeks. THAT is your intent, destroying this so that it can be sold off in private. Christ, you cannot be fired quick enough.

I really f*cking hate that we still have this Trumpanzee bomb-thrower inexplicably still in charge of the post office, giggling and setting fires all day. 

Gutting this chubby little b*tch should be a top priority.

Ups not fedex, yes iirc he has major business interests in ups a direct competitor to the usps. Yes its an obvious conflict of interest.

Yes, I am familiar with your powers of observation.

Again, who do you think is in charge of removing DeJoy while he is under investigation?

Hey!  That's really not fair.

DeJoy gave a LOT of money to Donald Trump. The least we can do is let him royally f*ck up the USPS.

Are you saying that DeJoy cannot be relieved of his duties while he's under investigation? Because that wasn't addressed in your rundown.

Have you missed each one of the other 53 threads we've had about this asshole?

I haven't had one single package make it to me on time in 2021.  My phone shows 13 packages.  If all my PRIORITY boxes are going to cost ~ $20 a piece I want them here in less than 2 weeks.  Priority should mean something useful.

I have yet to have a single thing delivered by USPS in 2021 come on time. This farkhead is directly to blame for that. Forcing empty trucks to drive between locations, removing fast sorting equipment to make room for more package sorting, then not putting anyone to sort packages. Brilliant stuff.
