Channel 2 Action News has been reporting for months on the problems for Georgia families and businesses waiting weeks for their mail and packages to get delivered.

Postal employees even sent us this video showing the matrix regional sorter, or MARS machine malfunctioning, sending mail and packages off the conveyor belt onto the floor.

It’s video like that, along with complaints from people all over north Georgia, that has lawmakers upset with USPS Postmaster General Louis DeJoy.

“Postmaster General DeJoy’s refusal to cooperate with basic Senate oversight is baffling and disturbing. It suggests that in addition to being incompetent at delivering the mail on time, he doesn’t care about the Georgians in distress as a result of his incompetence,” Ossoff said in a statement to Channel 2 Action News earlier this month.
