“With more than three times the national average. Think we had a problem here?” Said Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger.

Maryland representatives were among those requesting the OIG report. Inspectors found a variety of specific problems across multiple post offices in June.

At Clifton East, letters, postmarked in March were undelivered. They also found mail sitting in the Essex branch for more than four weeks that hadn’t even been sorted and a letter postmarked in December was still at the Dundalk location, six months later.

“We’ve been calling for Dejoy’s resignation for a long time,” said Sen. Chris Van Hollen.
