Congressional Democrats are calling on Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to protect the country's mail from future delivery delays and raising questions about his leadership, urging President Joe Biden to fill vacancies on the US Postal Service's Board of Governors so that the board can "seriously consider" whether the Trump administration appointee "is suitable to continue in his role."
