O'Brien hasn't filed postal complaint

Although House Speaker Bill O'Brien has accused Manchester post office workers of intentionally delaying his political fliers, he has not filed a complaint with postal inspectors, an inspection official said yesterday.

Agapi Doulaveris, a spokeswoman for the national Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Postal Service, said her office investigates all allegations of mail mishandling misconduct against postal employees. She said yesterday the office had received no complaints involving O'Brien's claims.

O'Brien said on a Facebook post that was made public that ''union thugs'' at the post office were delaying his political mailings to disadvantage him in the primary. O'Brien, a Mont Vernon Republican, is in a primary race for his seat. He has been a lead voice against unions this legislative session.

Officials at the Manchester post office, where O'Brien said his fliers were left for mailing, did not return a call yesterday. '
