Hopkins Retraction

In November 2020, Project Veritas reported that election fraud had occurred in Erie, Pennsylvania during the 2020 Presidential Election. This story was based on Richard Hopkins’s claim that he had overheard Robert Weisenbach, the Erie Postmaster, direct another USPS supervisor to illegally backdate mail-in ballots.

Mr. Hopkins has since come to learn that he was wrong – neither Mr. Weisenbach nor any other USPS employee in Erie, Pennsylvania engaged in election fraud or any other wrongdoing related to mail-in ballots. With this update, Project Veritas is aware of no evidence or other allegation that election fraud occurred in the Erie Post Office during the 2020 Presidential Election.
