It’s was as if the United States Postal Service handed Hillary Clinton a $90,000 campaign donation! The USPS Spent $90,000 covering the shifts for employees who left work to campaign for Hillary Clinton. The employees were essentially campaigning on behalf of the postal workers union. The Union had endorsed Hillary and pressured supervisors to approve time off for employees while other staffers were paid to cover the time lost.
All told, the money involved amounted to about $90,000.
Postal workers are allowed to take unpaid time off in order to help the union, but government employees are prohibited from actively campaigning for a candidate. The Inspector General is currently investigating whether postal workers who took time off to campaign for Hillary violated that precept.
Even if the IG doesn’t find anything illegal about it, taxpayers shouldn’t be footing the bill for folks to campaign for a candidate no matter which side of the aisle he or she is from.

Looking at this a certain way, it’s almost like the US Postal Service gave Hillary Clinton $90,000 in campaign donations. I guess getting cash from Saudi Arabia wasn’t enough for the Queen.
The USPS covered time off for employees who wanted to go campaign for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
