Unbelievable: Postal Employees Broke The Law For Hillary Clinton

The recent presidential election had its fair share of controversy.

The Democratic Party was out to get blood with Hillary Clinton leading the ravenous pack. In fact the lengths of which liberals were willing to go to get their leader elected are still unfolding – even months after Trump was dubbed the reigning champ.

The United States Postal Service is now involved in the latest Democratic scandal after giving its employees union-paid leave to carry out Clinton’s bidding during the election.

The USPS is a federal agency and is supposed to be intrinsically bipartisan. Any affiliation with or favoritism towards a political party is not only illegal, but a breach of trust with the American people who believe the USPS to be unbiased ground.

Fox News unveiled this story:

“The United States Postal Service violated federal law by letting employees do union-funded work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and other Democratic candidates while on leave from the agency, according to an Office of Special Counsel report obtained by Fox News.”

The specific offense the OSC is investigating into is the USPS’s violation of the Hatch Act. The OSC describes the Hatch Act as:

​​“…a federal law passed in 1939, limits certain political activities of federal employees, as well as some state, D.C., and local government employees who work in connection with federally funded programs. ​The law’s purposes are to ensure that federal programs are administered in a nonpartisan fashion, to protect federal employees from political coercion in the workplace, and to ensure that federal employees are advanced based on merit and not based on political affiliation.​​​​”

Federal employees have a spectrum within they can do political work on their own time. However, the OSC report says the Postal Service showed “bias” towards a particular campaign.

Fox News reported:

“The investigation was launched months ago after Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., brought constituent complaints to the OSC in October.”

The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) coordinated with the USPS after approximately 97 NALC members requested “union official” leave – with pay – to participate in Hillary’s campaign, according to reports by Fox News.

It would be one thing if USPS federal employees acted on their own volition to engage in these illegal activities, but the OSC reports say that “managers instructed local supervisors to let the workers participate.” The obvious offense of the USPS is clear, and at the cohesion of superiors.

Fox News reported:

“USPS Postmaster General Megan Brennan said that “senior postal leadership did not in any way guide union leadership in selecting the candidates for whom NALC employees could campaign” and that 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.””

Brennan contends that since USPS leadership didn’t actually recommend which employees the union should allow to help in Clinton’s campaign, that they are not liable for persuading employees or for allowing it to all take place.

Additionally, Postmaster Brennan claimed all offenses against the Hatch Act were “unintentional”.

Unfortunately for Brennan, and many other legal offenders, accidentally breaking the law is still breaking the law!

  1. No wonder the USPS is always needing more money to operate!!

  2. I will start off first by telling those that read this that I am not a U S Postal worker. I do have friends that work for the U S Postal Service and want to enlighten those looking in from the outside. The United States Postal Service is connected to the federal government but is more of a contractor of sorts. The USPS is governed by huge federal regulations which mandate a great deal of expenditures that the average private sector organization isn’t burdened with. One is a forced Union acceptance, another is a forced pre-funded retirement / healthcare package that isn’t negotiable. Hiring practices are also a contentious issue with strenuous requirements that often promote social issues over hiring more motivated workers. Participation in the Union isn’t negotiable, nor is paying the dues for which members have little to no say on how those funds will be spent. I would love to see the average person delivere a piece of mail for 41 cents, which by the way is a price that the federal government sets not the USPS. My friends are mostly Republicans caught in a world of political crap that most USPS workers can do nothing about. Unfortunately, because of the Union, poor employees are never fired and the few good employees are over tasked, over worked and greatly under appreciated. Just like the U S auto industry, the Union drove personal interest instead of better products that people would want to buy. Remember the horrible cars produced in the 80s and 90s? This was a largely due to the federal government and the EPA.

    we know they did and that is just one more in a long line of corrupt things the left is doing and since there is a double standard for them there will never be any one getting in trouble for there miss deeds !

  4. Thank you Armyvet10 for sharing. I have read about several instances where pre-filled out voter forms were stored and ready to ship in favor of Hillary and your coworkers turned this in. Keep us the good work there are people out here that appreciate your plight including me.

    • Doris Will says:

      Are these voter forms absentee ballots? Where would they be stored? Do you remember Franken’s election in Minnesota. where they happened to find boxes of ballots in the trunk of a car? Makes me wonder how many trunks hold boxes of ballots, and how would they be slipped into the count? Were they absentee ballots or ballots from polling stations? How do ballots get from the polling stations to the judge’s office?

      • Mary A. Daniels says:

        I can’t speak for other states, but in ours, all absentee ballots are mailed to the Election Office. Ballots are sorted and brought to the polling places (Wards) which the voters would have used if they had come to vote in person. During the day, whenever it is not crowded, pairs of poll workers (of different parties) put these ballots through the counting machine, just as people do who vote “live”. They finish after the polls close if there was not enough time earlier. When all have been counted, the machine spits out tapes of the count for each candidate for each office. (We do another hour or so of paper work to be sure all is correct.) Then the Vote tapes AND the physical ballots are driven to the Court House (or other designated location) and turned over to the proper election authorities.
        YES, two or more Chief poll workers probably DO put them in the trunk for this trip, but the “count” is on the tapes. The Franken election was disputed. In that case, the physical ballots do become important. They can be recounted by a different machine or, in some cases, by hand. Here, unused ballots would be returned to the office in the box they came in; voted ballots would be in locked bags.

        • Doris Will says:

          If they wanted to better secure the actual cast ballots, they should wait for a police car, place the ballots in the trunk, have the driver and 3 other poll workers drive directly to the Elections Office with the police escort. That would ensure no delays, no tampering and leaving the delivery car unattended, to be found at a later time. Thank you.

            Your kidding, that’s like WORK!

          • Doris Will says:

            So was recounting the Florida vote, but they were standing in line to do that when Gore lost. If security is called for watch what the banks do, or the police chain of evidence.

    • Mary A. Daniels says:

      By “voter forms” do you mean voter registration forms or actual voted ballots, such as absentee ballots.

  5. Every election year, the provisions of the Hatch Act are hammered into federal employees and threatened with the loss of our jobs if we violated the law by campaigning openly in a bipartisan election. So what happened in the interim? Now employees can violate the Hatch Act? They know better and all involved must be disciplined.

  6. we need not only jail time but the loss of their retirement benefits.
    Grampa

    This is just the tip of the iceberg!! And she has the nerve to write a book!! Look at all the crap this witch did to cheat her way to try and win the Presidency!! I heard a story on the news last night where someone made a comment about the Clintons having tentacles throughout Washington, and when I read a story like this, it proves it!! Anyone who was behind something like this, should be reprimanded however the law deems fit, and it should be another strike on Hillary’s long list of charges, to make sure she doesn’t see the light of day!! This will be a Federal charge, so it should be good for a few years!!

  8. There was no accidental breach here, this was suppose to never come to light. The voter fraud machine was in play and the agencies all believed the next person in that executive seat was going to be Killary. So violating federal laws which was a regular repeat occurrence under the BO administration as demonstrated by other agencies like the DOJ, Homeland Security, IRS, etc. was part of the game plan. Fire these Aholes, take their pensions away, and prosecute and jail them all. Management is where the buck stops but the willing and able cheaters on the job need to be stripped of pensions and jobs as well. There have to be consequences when you break the law. This bunch knew fully well this was illegal, all of them! No more turning away from these law breakers. Punish them to the fullest extent of the law. Enough is enough! And consequences are consequences!

    They broke the law, fire all who were involved.
