“I Did Not Recant”

A postal work­er who has made claims of alleged vot­er fraud in Penn­syl­va­nia is being ques­tioned over the verac­i­ty of those asser­tions, which have been cit­ed by Repub­li­can law­mak­ers as the basis for an investigation.

Richard Hop­kins, a mail car­ri­er from Erie, Pa., accused his boss of instruct­ing employ­ees to pick up and bring him bal­lots that were received after Elec­tion Day. Hop­kins said he over­heard his boss dis­cussing back­dat­ing post­marks to make the bal­lots appear as though they had been col­lect­ed by Nov. 3, instead of Nov. 4 or after.

In order for bal­lots to have been eli­gi­ble in the state, they need­ed to be post­marked by Elec­tion Day.

On Mon­day, Hop­kins is said to have signed an affi­davit recant­i­ng those claims, which appeared to be con­firmed in a tweet by Democ­rats on the House Over­sight Committee.

The Wash­ing­ton Post, which cit­ed three offi­cials briefed on the inves­ti­ga­tion, also said Hop­kins alleged­ly admit­ted to U.S. Postal Ser­vice inves­ti­ga­tors that claims of wide­spread vot­ing irreg­u­lar­i­ties were fabricated.

How­ev­er, Project Ver­i­tas – the far-right activist group which aired Hop­kins’ ini­tial claims – post­ed a video to its Twit­ter page on Tues­day, which appeared to show Hop­kins say­ing he did not recant his state­ments, along with the promise that more details would be released on Wednesday.
