A new U.S. Postal Service (USPS) employee came forward asserting mail carriers were instructed to deliver mail only for Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and mark the remainder “undeliverable” after November 9.
In a video shared on Twitter by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, the whistleblower from Elkins Park, Pa., told O’Keefe that the instructions meant other political mail was “garbage.”
“You [mail carriers] were told that the only political mail that will be delivered from now on will be that of the ‘winner,’ in this case, Joe Biden,” the whistleblower told O’Keefe. “And that other political mail from other sources and senders would be put into the undeliverable bulk business mail bin or UVM.”
“All political mail for Biden was to be continued to be treated as first-class and delivered the day it was received,” the whistleblower added.
When asked what happens to undeliverable bulk business mail, the whistleblower said, “I believe it goes back to the plant, but undeliverable bulk business mail is essentially a step away from the garbage.”
“Told that the only mail that will be delivered from now(Nov 9) on will be for that of the winner…this case @JoeBiden”

This isn’t the first report of whistleblowers coming forward revealing voter fraud or suppression in Pennsylvania during 2020 elections. In another case, a mail carrier from Pennsylvania said in a sworn affidavit that supervisors ordered him to collect and submit late ballots, which supervisors then backdated to appear as though they were mailed in time for Election Day.
Richard Hopkins from Erie, Pa., said he overheard a supervisor discussing a plan to backdate ballots, advising letter carriers to pick up ballots through Friday. Pennsylvania’s current rules require ballots to have been mailed by Election Day, but they could still be delivered to officials and counted through the following Friday, The Washington Times reported.
Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican and Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, released the affidavit provided to the Trump campaign, vowing to thoroughly investigate any credible claims of voting irregularities and misconduct in order to ensure the integrity of the 2020 elections, adding that he wouldn’t allow them to be “swept under the rug.”
“Mr. Hopkins is entitled to all whistleblower protections, and I will ensure they extend to other postal workers who may come forward with claims of irregulates, misconduct, fraud, etc.,” Graham said in a statement.
Disruptions in vote counts leading to widespread Election Day confusion propelled the Trump campaign to file multiple lawsuits in key swing states alleging voter fraud and suppression.
