Postal Service police block Florida congresswoman from touring USPS plants

U.S. Postal Service police officers barred a Florida congresswoman from scheduled tours at two mail-processing complexes Friday, blocking entry to the facilities and threatening to escort her from the property if she refused to leave.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) had arrived at the Royal Palm Processing and Distribution Center in Opa-Locka, Fla., for a 4 a.m. tour to find the parking lot entry roped off with caution tape and a U.S. Postal Inspection Service cruiser blocking the gate. Local Postal Service officials informed her and union leaders waiting to accompany her into the building that national USPS leadership had directed them to bar the group from the building.

At 6:30 a.m., Wasserman Schultz was denied entry at the Miami Processing and Distribution Center 10 miles away by a local Postal Service official as two armed Postal Inspection Service officers stood in front of turnstiles in the lobby.

Wasserman Schultz is everything that is wrong with the United States these days.

Whether or not you like her is immaterial. As a member of a congressional oversight committee, she is entitled to tour the facility. To have USPS leadership to order tgem to not allow the congresswoman to inspect the facility is a violation.

Wow big men to swell up in front of a Congresswoman! Really makes one wonder what the USPS was hiding.

The veterans used to tell stories of an old station manager chasing off Maxine Waters who was trying to see if any of her bulk business rate political ads were deferred

What’s the matter? Afraid to let the lady see all the mail piled up everywhere?

She isn’t a lady. She’s a communist pos

If she wants to get up early start daycares for poor residents organize tutoring rides for kids who can’t get tutoring help because their parents have to work etc etc why be concerned now we needed her twenty years ago work on getting rid of the bonus system and look how they just give bonuses to their friends check form fifties see what’s going on managers at some offices help other employees get extra money by giving them passwords etc etc just check and see what’s being done

“reports from postal employees of considerable amounts of undelivered mail there.”

Debbie has just been punked by a postal employee and is too stupid to realize it….All mail at a processing and distribution center is undelivered mail………LOL!

She would be disrupting mail processing operations if DeJoy would have let her and her entourage tour the postal facility…. this congresswoman is an idiot.

Quick hide the illegal management activity we got a visitor….
