You might think that this is a yarn that Morgan made up, but you’d be wrong. In its highly-redacted “Closing Memorandum,” the Post Office Inspector General (OIG) does not deny that Morgan was a subcontractor truck driver who took mail from Bethpage to Harrisburg, and then to Lancaster. The OIG claims that Morgan identified the wrong trailer number, and that his estimate of ballots could be much lower.
In the document, the OIG acknowledges that a contractor in Rochester, New York printed 650,000 general election ballots that went to Pennsylvania. Of the total, 450,000 went to Philadelphia County and 200,000 went to Chester County. In explaining how the printing company delivered the ballots to the Pennsylvania counties, the OIG states:
[Redacted name of printing company] explained, but could not confirm, the ballots for both PA BOEs [Pennsylvania Boards of Elections] were most likely delivered to those respective locations by their delivery trucks, or entered in the mail stream locally in Rochester, NY (emphasis added).
So, after more than a year of investigation, the Post Office IG was still not sure if the two batches of printed ballots were shipped into Pennsylvania in trucks owned by the printing company, or were taken to Rochester-area post offices to be delivered in government trucks. Wouldn’t the Post Office know whether or not it delivered the 650,000 ballots?
You of all people should know, Headlines can be sensationalized to draw attention. I think the main takeaways are what the article mentions ^, and any vindication would be of the hit job that was done to him in the media. I didn't follow the story very closely at the time.
What jumped out at me????
During an election where mail in ballots were used by the millions, none of the postal employees interviewed claim ever seeing more than 100 in a day.
Some employees remember seeing less then approximately one hundred (100) ballots the entire election season and stated they would notify a supervisor accordingly if they did see ballots. No employee reported seeing more than 100 ballots on a single day.
