A Texas company and two of its executives were accused of participating with a Postal Service governor in a contract bid-rigging scheme that included replacing the postmaster general. Albert V. Casey’s replacement of Paul N. Carlin as postmaster general was engineered in 1986 as part of the elaborate effort by Recognition Equipment Inc. to get $400 million worth of contracts to provide automated mail-sorting equipment, according an indictment returned in Washington. The indictment charged that the company; REI’s chairman, William G. Moore Jr., and Robert W. Reedy, a vice president, conspired with Peter E. Voss, then vice chairman of the Postal Service board of governors, and others to manipulate bid procedures, obtain confidential information about competitors and replace Carlin, considered an obstacle to REI winning contracts. Casey has not been accused of wrongdoing.
