PROTECT THE USPS LETTER-WRITING CAMPAIGN Beginning in June, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy manipulated the United States Postal Service for political and possible monetary gain. After his conduct was made known, public pressure forced DeJoy to suspend plans for additional changes until after the 2020 presidential election.
