Everyone’s furious after the US Postal Service broke the law, and allowed its employees to work for Hillary Clinton during her presidential campaign. Hillary wasn’t the only Democrat who enjoyed the help of those employees.
The information was confirmed in a report by the Office of Special Counsel. According to this report, the United States Postal Service “engaged in systemic violations” of the Hatch Act. This law regulates the political activities of US federal employees. These people were allowed to take part in certain political activities, but the only thing they took part in was the terrible “bias.”
The investigation was triggered by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis. The USPS employee showed humongous concern about the activities performed by Postal Service employees. The source said that the employees were released for several weeks of “union official” leave with the only purpose to boost Hillary’s campaign.
“The Labor 2016 program sought to ‘elect Hillary Clinton and pro-worker candidates across the country,” the report read. About 100 NALC members left their job positions, and became part of the entire scheme.
The report suggests that 92% of the work took place in Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
“We concluded that the USPS practice of facilitating and directing carrier releases for the union’s political activity resulted in an institutional bias in favor of NALC’s endorsed political candidates, which the Hatch Act prohibits,” said OSC Acting Special Counsel Adam Miles.

But, USPS Postmaster General Megan Brennan explained that “senior postal leadership did not in any way guide union leadership in selecting the candidates for whom NALC employees could campaign. USPS did not approve or choose candidates for the unions to support or ask the union to advocate for political candidates on behalf of the Postal Service.” Well, this is strange, and requires a thorough investigation.
What do you think about this? Will the USPS bear the consequences of its shady activities? Do you think there is a lot more behind the whole story? Will the investigation show more details about Hillary’s campaign.
