TRAVERSE CITY — False claims made in a viral video targeting Barlow Post Office workers, did not diminish the success of vote-by-mail during the recent presidential election, a national union official said.
“The arrows were strong and constant that somehow this was going to be a fraudulent process, a rigged process and just the opposite is the case,” Mark Dimondstein, president of the American Postal Workers Union said during a call-in news conference Tuesday.
“Facts are facts,” he added. “What happened in Traverse City — the inspectors are involved, they’re doing their investigations, it certainly doesn’t seem to have merit.”
A video shared widely on social media earlier this month had claimed postal workers at the Barlow branch backdated absentee ballots.
