Winning was all that mattered to post office

April 29, 2013 

Now the Department of Justice, in conjunction with the U.S. Postal Service, is suing cyclist Lance Armstrong because of the cheating scandal.

I say that USPS signed a contract with Armstrong and his team of cyclists and they made out with the advertisements on TV, all paid for by the American taxpayers. The USPS is saying it is broke but they enjoyed a lot of benefits before the scandal broke; now they want their cake and to eat it, too, all at the expense of the American taxpayers.

Get real, Department of Justice. The USPS could have required monthly urine tests from Armstrong and his team but they were benefiting greatly from all the winning at the time.
