AOC introduces Postmaster General DeJoy to concept of accountability. Apparently he’s ‘new to this’

So Ocasio-Cortez asked again. “Well according to regulations that we currently have, electronic calendars that are submitted and maintained on USPS computers are agency records,” she said, “and so can we get your commitment to hand that calendar over to this committee as a matter, of course, for investigation?”

DeJoy again responded: “I’m new to this. If that is in fact a process that counsel says I must comply with then I will do that yes.”

Ocasio-Cortez then directed her attention to Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney. “Madame chairwoman, I would say the details of this calendar are extraordinarily important to the committee’s investigations, and if we can not receive them voluntarily, I would recommend consideration of a subpoena for these details,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

She also used DeJoy’s presence before her to advocate for her district and get a wheelchair ramp installed in a majority-Hispanic community’s post office. “Now lastly and selfishly, I represent New York’s 14th congressional district. We have written the agency several times regarding accessibility for a ramp in our historic Jackson Heights post office, and I would greatly appreciate a returned correspondence to make sure that we can ensure that our disabled and elderly constituents can get access to the post office. Thank you very much. I yield my time.”
