A Michigan postal worker has claimed late ballots are being stamped with a November third postmark in order to be counted in the election.
On Thursday, the claims were posted in a video by ‘Project Veritas‘ and cited the anonymous postal worker at the Traverse City Post Office.
The worker claimed a directive was issued Wednesday to collect and separate any ballots received that day so they could be hand stamped with Tuesday’s date.
What is happening in Michigan is beyond corrupt.
A whistleblower within the @USPS says he was ORDERED by his supervisor to ILLEGALLY BACK-DATE newly found ballots to November 3rd, 2020.

The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled ballots have to be received before 8 p.m. November third and the move appeared to be an attempt to get around Michigan law.
“That’s sketchy…It screams corruption,” said Project Veritas founder James OKeefe. “Also, knowing the post office’s leanings politically, it didn’t seem quite right.”

When the branch supervisor was contacted by Project Veritas about the separation of ballots, he hung up.
On Wednesday, the Trump campaign said it filed a lawsuit in Michigan to stop counting ballots. They cited a need for increased access to watch the counting process.
