U.S. POSTAL SERVICE: SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT

 SAN BRUNO, Calif., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The following letter was released today by the U.S. Postal Service of Northern California:
 Dear Editor:
 As the "House of Representatives post office scandal" continues to generate news reports and editorials almost daily, we feel compelled to ask that a widespread misconception fueled by these reports be corrected.
 The headlines announce: "Post Office Provides Lawmakers with Illegal Cash; House Postmaster Pleads Guilty," leaving people to conclude the House post office is run by the U.S. Postal Service.
 The women and men of the U.S. Postal Service are honest, hard- working -- and are unfairly assumed to be associated with this scandal. In fact, the House post office is not and has never been a U.S. Postal Service operation, but rather is a private post office staffed and managed by the House.
 The are no Postal funds or Postal employees involved in the scandal.
 Sincerely,
 Dan DeMiglio
 Manager
 Corporate Relations Center
 U.S. Postal Service
 Northern California
