There were at least two moments where Postmaster General Louis DeJoy was caught in lies about what he told the U.S. Senate when he testified last week.

Last week, he said that he didn’t have any contact with Trump’s people about the campaign and vote-by-mail efforts. This week, he decided he did. It’s possible that at some point between the two hearings he did have contact, but there was no time for a follow-up.

“This is the first time DeJoy acknowledged that he had some communication with people in Trump’s orbit about the continued attacks against voting-by-mail, many of which come from the President directly,” CNN reported Monday. “DeJoy testified to the Senate last week that he had no direct contact with the Trump campaign during his tenure as postmaster general.”

Last week, DeJoy was caught in the lie about overtime for Postal Workers being cut. There are thousands of postal workers who have contracted COVID-19 over the past eight months, putting a burden on those still working.

There is also a question about DeJoy giving bonuses to those he worked with whom he also asked to donate to President Donald Trump’s campaign. It was a question that DeJoy denied fervently.

There were also questions about DeJoy’s responses to Rep. Alma Adams (D-NC) about the USPS collection boxes being locked down.

No one can believe this GOP senator’s embarrassing ad is real

Published

on

Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia is in a tough race to keep her seat, and at least so far, it seems she’s not sending her best.

Her latest ad baffled many observers, prompting some to genuinely question whether the clip was real. It’s production quality and corniness are so over the top and unprofessional, it’s hard to believe it’s from a sitting senator. And the messaging itself is so hamfisted and unsubtle that it’s hard to imagine it’s an appealing ad for voters, even in Republican-leaning Georgia.

The ad starts with a couple sitting on a sofa talking about how conservative Loeffler is. OK. But then it goes off the rails when it literally says that Loeffler is “more conservative than Attila the Hun.” Yes, really. And it only gets worse.
