(ReliableNews.org) – The United States Postal Service (USPS) isn’t able to handle a massive influx of ballots by election day. But Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her fellow Democrats are trying to push for voting-by-mail anyway.
Pelosi sent a letter to the Postmaster General of the United States Louis DeJoy on August 6, demanding the USPS rollback changes that were instituted to make the destitute agency run better. Her letter comes as Republicans, including President Donald Trump, have warned about the dangers associated with voting by mail.
Pelosi Demands Changes To Allow Voting By Mail
In the letter to DeJoy, Pelosi said she met with the postmaster general on August 5 to discuss mail delivery delays and other issues. Then she launched into an attack accusing him of causing the problems, saying USPS “instituted operational changes” after he took over the postal service and saying those adjustments are the root of the troubles.
The Democratic lawmaker said the reforms DeJoy made during the middle of a pandemic “now threaten the timely delivery of mail.” Her letter goes on to demand the changes be reversed AFTER acknowledging the USPS has persistent financial problems and doesn’t have the processing equipment to handle the mail.
For months, Trump has been sounding the alarm about the Democratic Party’s attempts to push mail-in voting. In June, the president said the Left wants to use this alternative method to “cheat.”
Because of MAIL-IN BALLOTS, 2020 will be the most RIGGED Election in our nations history – unless this stupidity is ended. We voted during World War One & World War Two with no problem, but now they are using Covid in order to cheat by using Mail-Ins!

That sentiment was shared by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich earlier this week, as well. The longtime Republican said the Dems can’t win the election the fair way, so they’re trying to steal it.
And, they have a right to be concerned. Imagine what’s going to happen when millions of ballots flood unprepared postal processing plants. It’s going to be a nightmare.
