According to a Postal Service inspector general audit released on Monday, election boards mailed more than 1 million ballots out to voters late in this year's primary election season -- within seven days of an election -- putting "these ballots at high risk by not allowing sufficient time for delivery" and their return.
At last week's hearing, DeJoy sought to assure Americans that delays caused by cost-cutting efforts would not cause ballots to go uncounted in November's election, when up to half of U.S. voters could cast ballots by mail.
DeJoy, who made changes in mid-July that critics said were significantly delaying deliveries, agreed to suspend operational changes until Election Day on November 3 but did not reverse all reforms.
A spokeswoman for Maloney confirmed on Wednesday the subpoena had been served and that DeJoy must turn over documents by September 16.
WASHINGTON - U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy received a subpoena from a congressional panel on Wednesday seeking documents connected to his decision to implement changes that Democrats said threatened mail deliveries and the 2020 election.
