The Washington Examiner confirmed the USPS’s Office of Inspector General is investigating the video. “We have learned of this matter and are looking into it,” USPS’s Office of the Inspector General’s spokesperson Agapi Doulaveris told the Washington Examiner. “No additional information available at this time.”
USPS spokeswoman Martha Johnson also told the Washington Examiner the Postal Service was aware of the video and was “referred to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.”
The video released by Project Veritas claims to show a USPS whistle-blower from the Traverse City Post Office in Michigan, specifically from Barlow Branch. The individual said he was instructed by a direct supervisor Jonathan Clarke to separate late ballots found in mail-boxes and “hand stamp them with the previous day’s date.” He added there was a “hamper where letter carriers were supposed to leave their ballots” and put into “express bags to go to the distribution center.” Project Veritas said they reached out to Clarke about the matter, but he declined to comment.
