Senior Republican warns postal reform at risk if DeJoy’s job is threatened
Alienating the lawmaker likely to chair the House oversight panel in 2023 would start a GOP majority on a rough note for the Biden administration.
A top House Republican is warning President Joe Biden that any attempt to stamp out Postmaster General Louis DeJoy risks blowing up bipartisan efforts to reform the beleaguered U.S. Postal Service.
Rep. James Comer of Kentucky, the House Oversight Committee’s top GOP member, says any fast moves to oust DeJoy from leading the USPS could peel his support away from a postal overhaul bill that’s a high priority for Democrats as soon as their party-line social spending bill clears Congress.
