Who knew WaPo would let democracy die in darkness?

Well, well, well. Who knew that the Washington Post would write an article saying the Erie, Pennsylvania post office worker who went on Project Veritas to whistleblow on voter fraud had recanted his story.

WaPo wrote,

“[The whistleblower] told investigators from the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General that the allegations were not true, and he signed an affidavit recanting his claims, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation. Democrats on the House Oversight Committee tweeted late Tuesday that the “whistleblower completely RECANTED.”

In this video, the same worker, Richard Hopkins, went on record saying he never did such a thing.

Interesting that the WaPo followed up by publishing a smear to discredit Hopkins with ,

The Erie postmaster, Rob Weisenbach, called the allegations “100% false” in a Facebook post and said they were made “by an employee that was recently disciplined multiple times.”

Are an employee’s internal employment records fit for public consumption? Even if he was disciplined, what exactly was his crime? Was it verbal? Written? Did he chew gum while sorting? Or did he merely refuse to participate in following orders given to him to break the law? Maybe WaPo let the wrong cat out of the bag. If Hopkins wasn’t disciplined maybe they’ll face a law suit (like Covington High student Nick Sandmann) for trying to smear him publicly with insufficient grounds?
