Louis DeJoy Delivers Self To Oversight Committee Hearing Several Days Late


Anchor: Delayed delivery. This is WBS News Radio, and it’s 1:18. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy delivered himself to a House Oversight Committee hearing several days late Wednesday, arriving this morning instead of last Friday, the day he was originally scheduled to appear. DeJoy apologized for the delay.

DeJoy: I apologize to the committee. / I sent myself here Thursday afternoon, fully expecting to arrive Friday morning, as scheduled. However, I was for some reason re-routed to Poughkeepsie, New York, where I spent several days, before finally being sent out again Monday afternoon. I’m not sure what the issue was, but you can rest assured I will be investigating.

Anchor: DeJoy went on to say he had intended to present several documents to the committee.

DeJoy: However, I put them in the mail several days before my scheduled appearance here, and they have not yet arrived.

Anchor: Once the hearing began in earnest, all of DeJoy’s answers were delayed several hours in getting to the committee. This is WBS News Radio.
