Yesterday a right wing web site claimed that a Wisconsin letter carrier had dumped campaign mail that had been sent by a GOP legislative candidate. The site suggested that the carrier’s motive was political, since he dumped GOP fliers, and not Democratic ones. It turns out that, while there is indeed an investigation into discarded mail, it has nothing to do with partisan politics. Why weren’t any of the Democratic candidate’s flyers found in the dumpster?
He didn’t send any!
“It does appear that obviously this mail was discarded. So far our investigation has not led to anything involved that this was targeted to any specific candidate or specific party,” USPS Special Agent Robert Rukes said.
Special Agent Rukes says no Democratic flyers were found.
Rohrkaste’s opponent in the 55th Assembly race says he may know why.
“I have not sent any mailers. I do have television commercials, airing on cable TV,” Democratic Assembly candidate Mark Westphal said.
