Postal Worker Challenges Washington Post Story: I Never Recanted My Statements, Take Down Your Article

Headlines Politics U.S.

Richard Hopkins, the postal worker from Eerie, PA, who blew the whistle on alleged ballot tampering is challenging The Washington Post’s story that he recanted his statements to federal prosecutors.

Hopkins made his statements in a video posted to Twitter.

“I did not recant my statements, that did not happen,” Hopkins says. “And I would like that The Washington Post recant their wonderful little article…they decided to throw out there.”

It was revealed yesterday that federal officials from the USPS Inspector General’s office tried to coerce Hopkins into changing his story about the tampering.

Hopkins, a Marine vet who served in Afghanistan, says that he has been placed on leave from his job without pay after making his allegations.
