DATED MATERIAL: Ron Paul supporters experience postal delays

Hammer of Truth offeeshul sources tell us that USPS deliveries of Ron Paul mailers raising awareness for an August 20th, birthday moneybomb are being inexplicably delayed until August 30th and beyond. Several North Carolina and Wisconsin supporters report signs that there’s a postal snafu of potentially epic failure proportions unfolding, with the extreme delays nullifying the effort.

Now we love a good Scooby Doo mystery so here’s two questions the Ron Paul supporters out there can help us answer:

  1. Have you experienced a August 20th Ron Paul Moneybomb mailer delay? Yes or no.
  2. Does this mean my (utilities/mortgage/bills/income/drugs from Canada) are a possible no show for pissing off the ▓▓▓▓▓ ▓▓▓▓▓▓▓? (fill in the blank)

In return: a link for free Ron Paul stickers. Bribery, it works every time.

Incidentally and not surprisingly, the campaign raised another healthy $1.82 million, and even weathered a sizable cyber attack along the way that was enough of a nuisance to keep the campaign’s twitter feed from boasting any updated reports throughout the day. Requests for comments from the Ron Paul campaign were not returned at the time of this report.

I don’t know about you guys on theories as to why there was a giant gap in postal service (ten days or more), but I do know that you can’t coat postcards in anthrax; So chalk that one off the list. And for all we know someone in the Paul campaign could have simply forgotten to take the bag to the Post Office, shit happens.

Share your mail issues or other craftily coordinated oddities and help us get to the bottom of the Mystery of the Missing Mailbags!

Update: This is a confirmed problem, with reddit’s r/Libertarian community also reporting that they are experiencing the same delay. The investigation continues…

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

      1. I received one of these late as well, there was no postage date that I could find on the envelope.  The letter itself was dated August 15th.  I’m in CA and also received mine a few days after the birthday, but can’t recall an exact date.

        1. There was no postmark date on my envelope either.  What was inside was a letter and a birthday card for Ron Paul, with a request for a campaign donation to be sent in time for his birthday.  I received it sometime between August 29th and August 31st (I check my mail about 2x a week since most of what comes in is junk and bills (a redundancy, yes).

    I live in Wichita, KS and received my letter on Tue. 8/30/11. There was no postmark, the letter was dated the 15th.

    I contacted the Paul campaign and gave them my info. I’m returning the letter, with a $20.12 donation on Tuesday. I’m sure Ron will appreciate it, late or not.
