Rep. Elise Stefanik‘s campaign says U.S. Postal Service workers stole nearly $20,000 in donor checks from packages they sent through the mail.

The campaign alleges that four separate packages sent in June, October and November 2022 were cut into and that postal police did not escalate the matter.

The Stefanik campaign sent a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy Thursday about the “repeated, targeted theft of campaign contributions from packages sent through the United States Postal Service.”

“Congresswoman Stefanik and her campaign supporters are not the only Americans who have been victimized by mail theft. Mail theft is rampant in the United States, and USPS appears unwilling or unable to effectively deter or prevent it,” the letter says.

The campaign has also raised concerns about personal data issues, including concerns of identity theft for some individuals, with the theft of the checks.

Stefanik was reelected as House GOP conference chairwoman last month, after easily winning reelection to her seat in New York’s 21st congressional district.
