COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio’s attorney general joined the chorus of people calling on President Donald Trump to seize his attempts to starve the U.S. Postal Service of money ahead of the November election.

Attorney General Dave Yost pleaded with Trump in a letter sent Sunday to postpone any needed changes to the Postal Service until after Election Day, warning that the “radical changes” would “place the solvency of the Post Office above the legitimacy of the Government itself.”

The letter comes after Trump frankly acknowledged he’s starving the Postal Service of money in order to make it harder to process an expected surge of mail-in ballots, which he worries could cost him the election.
