    why is it every time i visit this website theres some corruption by some union affiliated official? i mean seriously havent you learned anything yet from previous idiotic wannabe shady characters that eventually get caught. the mob doesnt even embezzle this much. no wonder the usps is under such scrutiny for the stories that dont go nationwide.

    Yes, Charles, I agree with you. How can these people think that they won’t get caught? But with 500,000+ human beings working there, you can’t expect everyone to be angels. Getting caught is bad because not only do you go to jail, but you also lose your job and your pension. Is it really worth it?
