The Neenah mail carrier who dumped hundreds of GOP political mailers in an apartment complex Dumpster wasnt politically motivated; the postal worker just didnt feel like delivering the stacks of campaign advertisements, according to preliminary findings from the U.S. Postal Service Office of the Inspector General.
Based upon our investigation, this was nothing done toward a specific candidate or party. It looks like it was a decision made by the carrier, and it was not a good decision, to not deliver the campaign advertisements, Robert Rukes, special agent with the inspector generals office in Chicago, told Wisconsin Reporter Monday.
A lot of times, what happened in this situation, you have a carrier who felt overwhelmed with the volume of mail so they decided to discard some of the mail without delivering, Rukes added.
Due to the ongoing investigation, Rukes declined to identify the mail carrier, who, according to the special agent, dumped 879 pieces of political mail Thursday.
As Wisconsin Reporter first reported Sunday, the political mailings were from the campaigns of Mike Rohrkaste, Republican candidate for Wisconsins 55th Assembly District, and Glenn Grothman, a Republican state senator running for the open 6th Congressional District seat, as well as political messages from a special interest group in support of former state Rep. Roger Roth, a Republican who is running for Wisconsin 19th Senate District seat.
Rukes confirmed that Neenah postal officials responded to the apartment complex and verified the mailers had been unloaded in the Dumpster. A resident had witnessed the mail carrier dump the campaign literature, according to Rukes.
There were no reports that campaign mailers from Democratic Party candidates have been similarly mishandled.

We’re supposed to believe that?
Did he dump any DNC material?
did he dump anything else?
Just add it to the list of guberment agency’s we can no longer trust to do their job impartially: IRS, DOJ, WH, USPS...and the hits just keep on coming...
Have you ever heard of a mail carrier dumping the regular junk mail we all get? I didn’t think so.
he didn’t dump grocery store circulars I bet
Oddly .. I believe that. What a loser.
No because interfering with Political campaigns probably carries a stiffer fine and sentence than just scofflaw’ing it off.
So it isn’t a Federal crime to tamper with the mail if you’re “just lazy?”

” and it was not a good decision”
Two hours of advanced decision making seminar and back to work.
“There were no reports that campaign mailers from Democratic Party candidates have been similarly mishandled.”
Odd how laziness can hit you sporadically like that.
Well, whatever the Ministry of Truth tells us.
“A lot of times, what happened in this situation....”
Really...a lot of times?
Just your run of the mill mail destruction. Nothing to see here...
Yeah, not politically motivated... right.../s
Sounds like mail tampering to me. Throw the book at the bum and deny him a pension. Send a message!
If the carriers stopped delivering flyers where I live they wouldn’t have anything to do. I get pounds of it every day and have to short through it to make sure a real letter didn’t get hidden.
Easy to prove - were ‘rat mailers dumped too?
So strange that he was only dumping Republican campaign literature.
