Yost To Trump: Stop Messing With The Postal Service

Associated Press

Republican Ohio Attorney General David Yost has joined the chorus of people calling on President Trump to end his attempts to starve the U.S. Postal Service of money ahead of the November election. 

Yost has sent a letter to Trump pleading with him to postpone any needed changes to the service until after Election Day, warning that the "radical changes" would "place the solvency of the Post Office above the legitimacy of the Government itself." The letter comes after Trump acknowledged he's starving the service of money in order to make it harder to process an expected surge of mail-in ballots, which he worries could cost him the election. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is a Trump ally and major GOP donor.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
