U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids of Kansas is among the Democrats in Washington calling for the removal of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, as a national controversy over the U.S. Postal Service continues to mount. 

Davids, a first-term Democrat, also says she supports House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s move to call the House back to session early to attempt to block the Trump administration’s overhauls of the USPS. 

“I will not stand by while this President and his cronies try to tear apart this constitutionally-mandated and extremely popular institution piece by piece in order to serve their political agenda,” Davids said in statement late last week. “The American people have lost all faith in DeJoy’s ability to lead the Postal service, and he must be removed immediately.”
