The Office of Special Counsel issued a report in July finding that management of the U.S. Postal Service violated the federal Hatch Act by coordinating with the National Association of Letter Carriers to allow postal workers time off without pay to campaign on behalf of the Clinton for President Campaign and other Democratic Party candidates. The workers were then paid by the NALC’s political action committee. The NALC endorsed Hillary Clinton for President, and its political action committee supported her campaign financially. The Hatch Act is intended to keep federal government agencies neutral and out of politics, and generally makes it unlawful for federal government employees to participate in certain federal election campaign activities.
