Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Postmaster General, a Trump Ally, Overhauls Leadership of USPS Ahead of Elections

HeadlineAug 10, 2020

The new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has overhauled the leadership of the U.S. Postal Service in a move that critics say will give DeJoy more power ahead of the November election, when a record number of mail-in ballots are expected to be cast. Twenty-three Postal Service executives were reassigned or displaced on Friday in what Democrats described as a “Friday night massacre.” Since taking office, DeJoy has instituted a number of cost-cutting measures that have slowed down the delivery of mail. There is now a days-long backlog of mail across the country. Prior to becoming postmaster general, DeJoy was a major donor to Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
