‘Happy Ramadan’: Postal worker threatens to destroy mail featuring Muslim holiday stamps

Published

The US Postal Service is investigating threats made online by a woman identifying herself as one of its mail carriers, Buzzfeed reported.

The woman identifying herself online as Catherine An Ray threatened to tamper with mail on Monday after sharing a post by anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller complaining about the release of a stamp commemorating the Muslim holiday of Eid.

“[As] A US Mail Carrier I can personally assure everyone here that anything with this stamp on it will be lost or destroyed in the system before is [sic] makes delivery,” Ray wrote. “Guaranteed. Happy Ramadan.”

Delaying or destroying mail constitutes a federal offense. A spokesperson for the USPS, Toni DeLancey, told Buzzfeed that it would at the very least mean termination for any employee who refused to deliver mail.

“At this time we cannot confirm if the person involved in this matter is a postal employee,” DeLancey said. “But we can assure you that the incident is being fully investigated and that the Postal Service will take whatever action is appropriate.”

Ray’s Facebook feed reveals several anti-Islam statements, as well as her support for presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has called for an immigration ban against Muslims. Screenshots from her page can be seen below.

Published

Rudy Giuliani denied claims by former national security adviser John Bolton, and kept the door open to his own possible impeachment testimony.

The former New York City mayor said he was still President Donald Trump's personal attorney, but explained why he had not been added to his impeachment trial defense team, reported CBS News.

"Well, I am, but I can't participate in what goes on in the Congress, because I'm a possible witness," Giuliani said, adding that he's ready to testify if he got White House approval.
