The Postal Service of the United States has apparently violated the federal law by allowing employees to work for Hillary Clintons campaign and their work was even funded by the union, a Fox News report states.
The OSC determined that the USPS engaged in systemic violations of the Hatch Act, a federal law that limits some political activities of the federal employees. While they are allowed to do some political work while on leave, the report said the Postal Service showed a bias favouring the unions 2016 campaign operation.
The investigation was initiated several months ago, after Ron Johnson, who is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, brought complaints to the OSC. The constituent, who was a USPS employee, was worried that the Postal Service incurred unnecessary overtime costs and improperly coordinated with the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) when it allowed members for several weeks of union official leave without pay to be part of Hillarys campaign.
The reported states that around 97 members of NALC sought the leave without pay so they can take part in the campaign. The NALC, which endorsed Clinton last June, compensated those USPS workers using the Letter Carrier Political Fund, the unions PAC.
According to the report, 82 percent of the work took place in the 2016 battleground states: Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Apparently, officials at multiple levels were involved.
Adam Miles, the OSC Acting Special Counsel said that the NALC provided lists of letter carriers to participate in campaign activity. According to Miles, the local officials interpreted the communications as directives.
The report said that local supervisors had concerns about how this will influence the postal workflow and had opposed this, but then there was an instruction received by the USPS

And what tangible punishments will come from this?
No surprise here. Long ago FEC records indicated that >95% of The Swamp contributed to and supported Hellery.
In Fact, several of the DOJ Prosecutors who Targeted President Trump were in Attendance at Hellery’s “election night “Victory Celebration”. This is well documented.
We will change our practice in consultation with the OSC and based upon OSCs guidance. This will ensure that we do not put our people in harms way and they do not unintentionally run afoul of the Hatch Act, (Megan) Brennan said.
I want to see charges.
I want to see suspensions/firings.
These unions are likely doing this, all across the USA.
Took 4 freakin years to discover this?
Now everyone, with a modicum of intelligence, can see why the Soro/Socialist Party wants voting by mail.
Trump has refused to bail them out.
Just confirms my low opinion of the mailfag that delivers my mail...
They will be tossing boxes of votes from Republican districts and replacing them with boxes of votes from the trunk of government cars.
> Trump has refused to bail them out.
I can hear it now. Trump refuses “necessary” bailout to his political rivals.
Floggings would be appropriate.
This along could have ended Hillary winning the popular vote.
and we’re supposed to trust mail in voting....
the thing is a lot of ex military get these postal jobs....
If any of them were in a managerial positions, they likely get a yearly bonus.
Wait, and this the same entity seeking a bailout?!
