James O’Keefe and Project Veritas now have posted video interviews of two Postal Service workers in Pennsylvania alleging that supervisors and other management personnel in their facilities had envelopes with “mail-in” ballots backdated with hand-stamped postmarks to reflect that the ballots had been mailed on November 3, 2020, when those ballots had, in fact, been processed through their postal facilities on November 4th and 5th, 2020.
BREAKING: Pennsylvania @USPS Whistleblower Exposes Anti-Trump Postmaster's Illegal Order To Back-Date Ballots
"Ballots that are coming in today, tomorrow, yesterday, are all supposed to be postmarked the 3rd"

That video was recorded on November 5, obscuring the voice and image of the Postal Service worker.
This next video was recorded yesterday, and it appears that the worker has now identified himself as Richard Hopkins, and confirms that he has been interviewed by US Postal Inspectors about the claims he made in his first interview with O’Keefe.

Hopkins claims that the understanding within his facility was that all ballots received on the 4th, 5th, and 6th are supposed to be given to Supervisors, who then are to hand-stamp them with a postmark of November 3 before they are delivered to the County Election Board to which they are being mailed. Hopkins claims that he overheard a conversation between the Postmaster — the person in charge of the facility — and a supervisor where the Postmaster was upset that one ballot had been postmarked on the actual date it was received, November 4, rather than the date it was supposed to be stamped, November 3rd.
The worker claims he is certain that the same directive remained in effect on November 5 — that all ballots received by the facility between the 4th and the 6th were to be processed by supervisors, and were to be given postmarks showing they were processed on the 3rd.
Handling the ballots in this fashion would make them immune from any decision by the Supreme Court that finds such late-arriving ballots to be invalid under Pennsylvania law, and not valid for counting.
Project Veritas claims on its Twitter homepage that it is receiving similar reports from other parts of the country, and will continue to post information as it comes in.
Erie Pennsylvania is a closely contested county, with Joe Biden prevailing by 1500 votes — but there were 120,000 votes cast in that County.
I’ll update this story later in the date if new information becomes available.
