Post Office Employees Were Given Paid Leave to Campaign for Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton pulled out all the stops to defeat Trump, except campaign.

Clinton had so many people doing her dirty work, it’s shocking that Trump won.

Take the postal employees for example. They could have kept Trump campaign mailers from reaching their destination. After all, the post office is one of the biggest employers of blacks, ergo Democrats in the country.

And why wouldn’t they not deliver Trump’s mailers, given their other support of crooked Hillary Clinton in the way of campaigning.

According to Heat Street, the USPS covered time off for employees who wanted to go campaign for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Who wouldn’t want to get out of that job?’

Anybody think the USPS would have granted paid leave for people wanting to campaign for Donald Trump?

Hello…hello?

Further, the employees were campaigning on behalf of the postal workers union, a union that endorsed Hillary. And as for how they got that precious time off, the union pressured supervisors to approve the time off for employees. The grand total for the non-monetary campaign contribution to the Clinton campaign: $90,000.

According to an Inspector General’s report, 100 postal workers took extended leaves of absence to hit the campaign trail on behalf of the postal union—the National Association of Letter Carriers. The union, which had by then endorsed Hillary Clinton, used these same postal workers to supplement their grassroots political operations in swing states. Sadly, even with this help, Clinton lost.

Technically, postal workers are allowed to take unpaid holidays in order to help the union. Nor are government employees supposed to actively campaign for a candidate. The Inspector General is currently investigating whether the postal workers who took time off violated that precept. However, before you jump to judgment, understand that technically the USPS is not a government agency.

The real issue is unrelated to government versus non-government.

The USPS acts much like a federal agency, thus receives taxpayer funding. Union or not, they shouldn’t endorse a candidate. Moreover, they shouldn’t be allowed to contribute in any official way.

Then there is that fact that the USPS is broke. Not “dead broke” Clinton style, but dead broke poor people style. How could they possibly afford to give away $90,000? I’d like the American taxpayers to sue the people who authorized this, so we stop this from happening again.

I wrote of the USPS a while back:

The post office lost $15.9B last year. I can’t find when the post office EVER made a profit, and I looked hard. This article is titled, “Post Office is still losing money, but not quite as much,” and I am NOT joking.

On the other hand, Fed-Ex’s profits were up 7 percent in the last quarter. And in the same year the post office lost almost $16B, Fed-Ex showed profits every quarter, and their stock has risen from ~$84 in Jan of 2012 to $114 as of last week.

Fed-Ex is focused. If I were the government, I would try an experiment where the management team of Fed-Ex was brought in to run the post office for a week. There is no incentive for post office personnel to improve the process. And that is why we have the most inefficient government on earth.

Hillary won’t get another shot. Thankfully.

I used leave, and got paid for it doing things to help elect Republicans. If the employee had the leave, they can do anything they want with the time off. My office ended up paying overtime to my coworkers so I could work for my congresswoman, and our current president. This is a nothing burger.

Oh, I agree if you have the time you can use it how you like. My only beef is that we still give the USPS 18 Billion a year in taxpayer money so they can make their budget. I got great time off too. I've just come to realize that the Unions promised us the world and now things are pretty bad and the taxpayers, us included, pay for it. Same with my state. The unions promise us everything and now with the explosion of HC, Gov Christie is trying to take over BC/BS. Can't wait to see what's going to happen with that! 

American taxpayers give an $18 billion gift to the post office every year
