USPS Investigating Mail Carrier Dumping GOP Literature


Neenah, WI Postmaster Brian Smoot has launched an investigation after one of the mail carriers was observed dumping hundreds of pieces of Republican literature into a recycling dumpster.

Mike Rohrkaste is running for Wisconsin’s 55th Assembly District.  He was contacted by a Neenah resident last Thursday after seeing a mail carrier dump his literature.  After the mail carrier left the scene, the witness went to investigate what had been thrown out. The witness found Rohrkaste’s and other Republican literature. No Democratic literature was found in the dumpster.

Rohrkaste immediately called the United States Postal Service.  Within half an hour, a supervisor was on the scene taking photographs of the incident. All the mail that was found has since been delivered.

“I’m glad the postal service here took it seriously, and I’m glad we got the pieces mailed,” Rorhkaste said. “If that wasn’t brought to my attention, I never would have known.”

“What I was upset about is, I don’t want this to happen to anybody,” the candidate added. “This is a First Amendment right. It’s one of our nation’s cherished principles.”

Do you believe the mail carrier was attempting to suppress Republican voters?
