Whoa, Nelly! You know this is not going to go well for him.

House Democrats are launching an investigation of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and called for his immediate suspension following accusations that he reimbursed employees for campaign contributions they made to his preferred GOP politicians, an arrangement that would be unlawful.
Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) said in a statement late Monday that the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, which she chairs, would begin an investigation, saying that DeJoy may have lied to her committee under oath.
Maloney also urged the Board of Governors of the U.S. Postal Service to immediately suspend DeJoy, whom “they never should have hired in the first place,” she said.
Maloney’s announcement came a day after The Washington Post reported allegations that DeJoy and his aides urged employees at his former North Carolina-based logistics company to write checks and attend fundraisers on behalf of Republican candidates.
DeJoy then defrayed the cost of those political contributions by boosting employee bonuses, two employees told The Post.
Although it can be permissible to encourage employees to make donations, reimbursing them for those contributions is a violation of North Carolina and federal election laws.
Okay, I have to admit that the minute I saw Louis Dejoy I suspected he was into some shady shit.
That plus the fact that he is a huge Republican donor made me think that he is bending or breaking all kinds of laws.
Yes I know I am a progressive and we pride ourselves on always waiting for the facts before jumping to conclusions.
Here’s a fact for you, that guy is guilty, guilty, guilty!!!
And I have every confidence that the House Democrats are going to prove it.
