Pa. postal whistleblower raises $233K on crowdfunding after being suspended without pay

Pennsylvania postal worker Richard Hopkins took a financial hit after coming forward with ballot back-dating allegations, but fortunately for him, there’s crowdfunding.
Mr. Hopkins, 32, had raised as of Tuesday more than $233,000 on Give Send Go, the Christian crowdfunding site where he posted a campaign last week after being suspended without pay from his job and kicked off GoFundMe.
“Your donations are going to help me now that I have been put on unpaid leave from my job in Erie and have been ostracized by most of my coworkers,” said Mr. Hopkins on his page. “I hope to get a new start in a place I feel safe and continue supporting my children while I find out what comes next.”
