It’s been a rocky few months for the U.S. Postal Service.
Numerous lawsuits were filed over the post office’s handling of mail-in ballots during November’s elections. Then came the holiday season, and customers became frustrated by backlogs that meant their Christmas cards and packages weren’t delivered until January.
Among those frustrated is Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., who says cards his office sent to constituents on Dec. 1 are still arriving at homes in his district.
Pascrell says enough is enough.
“It would seem to me that if we shrink the trust of the post office any more, there won’t be any post office left to trust,” he says. “So we need to do something that’s strong. It’s time to clean the house. And that’s what I’m recommending.”
