Even as the U.S. Postal Service began sliding into the worst financial crisis in its history, some postal executives in recent years found a way to earn more money by resigning from their jobs and returning as highly paid contractors while doing essentially the same work.
The executive in charge of the U.S. Postal Service's $13 billion supply-management operation has acknowledged "cracks in the system," saying more than 30 percent of the agency's contracting-officer positions remained unfilled.
Records show that the U.S. postmaster general and his top officials gave investigators varying accounts about the decision to allow a top executive to retain his six-figure outside corporate jobs while working full time, earning more than $230,000 as president of shipping and mailing, for the U.S. Postal Service.
