PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Let. This. Be. True.
Biden replaces Ron Bloom, USPS board chair and key DeJoy ally, on postal board (Talking Points Memo)
President Biden on Friday announced plans to nominate two former federal officials to the U.S. Postal Service’s governing board, replacing two key allies of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, including its Democratic chairman.
The move casts doubt on DeJoy’s future at the agency, according to three people with knowledge of the matter, and potentially gives liberals on the panel two crucial votes to oust the postal chief, who can be removed only by the board of governors.
The people spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak freely about private discussions.
The White House on Friday, confirming a Washington Post report on the decision, announced it would nominate Daniel Tangherlini, the former administrator of the General Services Administration in the Obama administration, to replace Bloom. Derek Kan, a Republican and the former deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, would replace Republican John M. Barger.
(De)Joy to the World!
I put this up briefly just moments before the Rittenhouse verdict was announced. So I pulled the post. The first 4 comments are from the original posting.
