According to the Washington Post, Richard Hopkins, the USPS worker who sounded the alarm on vote tampering with the postal service has admitted to lying and was paid $130K by Republicans donors to carry it out.

Hopkins alerted federal officials of voting irregularities prompting U.S. Attorney General William Barr to launch an investigation into the matter.

On Monday, Hopkins told the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General that his claims were false and signed an official affidavit recanting his accusations.

Hopkins works out of the post office in Erie, PA.
