With a story like this, is there any wonder why more people than ever are using e-mail?
The American Postal Workers Union has extended its internal election after thousands of ballots appeared to have gotten lost . . . in the mail.
The union’s election committee was supposed to be counting those ballots this week in downtown Washington, D.C., following a tradition mail-in election. But the union announced that only about 39,000 ballots were turned in — and that “a large number of union members had not received their ballots.”
There’s no word yet on whether the postal inspector suspects foul play…or just plain old incompetence. So, all we can say for now is: Wow! Just…wow!
