Broke US Postal Service Paid $90,000 To Cover For A Major Political Activity

Even though The United States Postal Service has come under scrutiny for a plan to close thousands of post offices – a move the Postal Service said it must make to avoid bankruptcy, they still managed to pay an enormous amount of money to cover for one major political activity. Apparently, USPS paid out $90,000 to cover for paid employees who took time off to campaign for Hillary Clinton. paid employees who took time off to campaign for Hillary Clinton.

Almost 100 USPS workers took extended leaves of absence to hit the campaign trail on behalf of the postal union—the National Association of Letter Carriers. The union, which had by then endorsed Hillary Clinton, used these same postal workers to supplement their grassroots political operations in swing states, according to an Inspector General’s report.

The Inspector General now investigates whether the postal workers who took time off violated that precept. However, the investigation revealed that campaigning for Clinton cost the cash-strapped agency dearly because workers who covered for the absent, politicking employees were paid overtime to fill shifts. To make up for the 2,776 days lost, the post office shelled out more than $90,000.

Unions violate rules to help Hillary? I am not surprised at all! Has Hillary ever done anything that isn’t illegal?It’s a drop in the full bucket, but nevertheless, the union must be called to account for this illegal activity.

This is yet another example of the Obama Administration ‘weaponizing’ the federal government to target political opposition. Hatch act? Violated. Democrats are rarely held accountable for their crimes.

    I was never paid to go out and campaign for someone. I never worked for the postoffice but still in all. You have a job you get there in the morning and you do your work. You get paid vacation. That’s when you can do what you want. I like the Post Office. But whoever is in charge needs to answer for some of these decisions.

    This is terrible and Un-American, as far as I’m concerned! How dare the Postal Service pay their workers for taking time off to campaign for CROOKED Hillary Clinton!!! Obama was behind it, but nothing happened to him for WASTING the Taxpayors’ money, as she was not elected anyway! The Democrats did many unscrupulous things trying to get their candidate in Office but we, the people prevailed!! God Bless America!!!

    First of all it is illegal for postal employees to do this. Second, the post office is not broke. Check your facts. Go to the GAO of the US govt. The postal service is the ONLY entity, business or company who is FORCED to pay 5,000,000,000 per year to prefund health benefits and the retirement benefits for 75 years forward. Future employees have not even been born yet. Just like congress raided Soc.Sec they do the same thing with any money the Postal Service has now or in the future . The GAO has figured the postal Service has already overpaid 25,000,000,000 , but the money is already spent by our elected officials and we won’t get it back. So before you blame the postal service check your facts and check your senators and congressmen.
