“It is vital that the public sees where UPS, FedEx and Pitney Bowes – all with a hand in the government contracting till – are sending their corporate cash,” Dimondstein said. “We demand to know whose campaigns they are funding as they seek to weaken the public good, the public Postal Service. That will go a long way toward helping us to hold our elected representatives accountable.”
