U.S. Postal Service Aide Admits Guilt in Payoff Scheme
The vice chairman of the U.S. Postal Service’s board of governors pleaded guilty Friday to trying to steer a postal contract worth $250 million to a Texas company in exchange for illegal payoffs.
Peter Voss, under an agreement with federal prosecutors, admitted in a three-count felony information filed in U.S. District Court that he had illegally received from $20,000 to $25,000 in payoffs.
He immediately resigned from the postal board. He faces up to seven years in prison and $21,000 in fines.
