A federal judge in Washington, D.C., has ordered the U.S. Postal Service to restore high-speed mail sorting machines at facilities that cannot process First Class election mail efficiently amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Thursday order was intended to clarify an injunction issued late last month that prevented the Trump administration from enforcing operational changes implemented by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy in June and July that included removing high-speed sorting machines.
The Postal Service at the time had asked the judge to clarify the order, claiming that the dismantled machines couldn’t be put back together again, according to Bloomberg.
In the order, Judge Emmet Sullivan wrote that at post offices that cannot process election mail before the Nov. 3 elections, “available processing equipment will be restored to service to ensure that the Postal Service can comply with its prior policy of delivering Election Mail in accordance with First Class delivery standards.”
The Postal Service also has to provide a status report by Friday at 5 p.m. to inform “the Court of its efforts to comply with this Court’s instructions here and in the previous order.”
The states of New York, Hawaii and New Jersey, led by New York Attorney General Letitia James (D), sued the Trump administration in late August claiming that actions taken by the administration and the postmaster general were aimed to disrupt mail operations before the elections. San Francisco and New York City also joined the suit.
Reuters reported that the Postal Service claimed that they had already returned 137 mail processing machines to service since August.
So that’s good news.
I hope that when Trump leaves office that Congress investigates all of this and issues subpoenas for every motherfucker to help Trump attempt to undermine our election process.
There is literally nothing that Trump has done that has angered me as much as this.
And trust me, literally everything that he has done has angered me.
