Madison, Wisconsin— Senator Tammy Baldwin ignored another whistleblower—this time one reporting on political wrongdoings inside the United States Postal Service. Just like when she failed to act when veterans were in danger at the Tomah VA, Senator Baldwin chose to protect the Washington status quo by ignoring this whistleblower’s complaints that government officials broke federal law.

Wisconsin whistleblower on political campaigning by postal workers says Sen. Baldwin never responded

MARSHFIELD — The Wisconsin man who blew the whistle on political campaigning by postal workers says U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin’s office never responded to his concerns, an accusation Baldwin’s office denies.
Timm Kopp, a letter carrier from Marshfield, grew concerned that postal workers were allowed to take time off work to campaign for their unions’ preferred Democratic Party candidates, causing staff shortages.
A federal investigation found the U.S. Postal Service had violated a federal law, and the agency has promised changes.
“I never expected it to get to this point. Basically all I did is, I wanted to raise concerns about things that were not being done correctly,” Kopp said during July 19 testimony before the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee.
In his written testimony, Kopp said he called the offices of Baldwin, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy last fall. He wrote that it took about a week before Johnson’s office responded. Duffy’s office also called back, he said.
“I got no reply at all from Senator Baldwin’s office,” Kopp said in his testimony.
Wisconsin Republicans criticized Baldwin over the issue.
“This is yet more evidence that after two decades in Washington, Senator Baldwin puts her liberal special interest allies ahead of Wisconsin,” said Alec Zimmerman, a GOP spokesman.
