PA. Postal Whistleblower Richard Hopkins Placed on Leave WITHOUT PAY

The Penn­syl­va­nia postal whistle­blow­er has been tak­en off the job with­out pay after alleg­ing bal­lot-tam­per­ing at the Erie Post Office.

Mail car­ri­er Richard Hop­kins was informed that he had been placed on “off-duty/non-pay sta­tus effec­tive Novem­ber 10, 2020,” and that his actions “may have placed employ­ees and your­self as well as the rep­u­ta­tion of the US Postal Ser­vice in harm’s way,” accord­ing to a let­ter post­ed on social media by Project Veritas.

“You are to remain off work until the com­ple­tion of the OIG and inter­nal inves­ti­ga­tion,” said the Tues­day let­ter from U.S. Postal Ser­vice cus­tomer ser­vice man­ag­er Stephanie Hetrick.

Mr. Hop­kins told Project Ver­i­tas last week that he heard his super­vi­sors talk­ing about back­dat­ing bal­lots received after the Nov. 3 dead­line, and lat­er signed an affi­davit that was for­ward­ed Fri­day by the Trump cam­paign to Sen­ate Judi­cia­ry Com­mit­tee Chair­man Lind­sey Graham.

The House Over­sight Com­mit­tee said Tues­day that Mr. Hop­kins had exe­cut­ed anoth­er affi­davit recant­i­ng his alle­ga­tions, but he said after­ward he was pres­sured into sign­ing the doc­u­ment by inves­ti­ga­tors with the USPS Office of Inspec­tor General.

“They were grilling the hell out of me,” Mr. Hop­kins said in a Project Ver­i­tas video post­ed Tues­day. “I’m kind of pissed. I feel like I just got played.”

In a sec­ond video, he said, “I am here to say that I did not recant my state­ments. That did not hap­pen. That is not what happened.”
