In a signed affidavit, an Erie, Pennsylvania USPS worker Richard Hopkins alleges that he heard one of his supervisors having a conversation about back-dating the postmark date on mail-in ballots to November 3rd “to make it appear as though the ballots had instead been collected on November 3, 2020” instead of on November 4. 

The postal worker also alleged in the affidavit that the supervisor “ordered my co-workers and I to continue picking up ballots after November 3 despite the requirement that ballots be mailed by them.”

Continuing that his supervisor “directed that ballots be picked up through Friday, November 6, 2020.”

In Senator Graham’s statement, he says “It is imperative that all credible allegations of voting irregularities and misconduct be investigated to ensure the integrity of the 2020 elections.”

Continuing that he “will not allow credible allegations of voting irregularities or misconduct to be swept under the rug.”

“I will be calling on the Department of Justice to investigate these claims. I’ll also be in contact with the Postmaster General, requesting he to look into these allegations, ones that may follow, and help secure testimony of Mr. Hopkins.”

“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.”
