Fact #1: Senator Diane Feinstein is married to the CEO of the largest commercial real estate services firm in the U.S.
Fact #2: The U.S. Postal Service is going bust, because it can no longer compete. It has a monopoly, but it’s market is shrinking.
Fact #3: The U.S.P.S. is selling off 41 post offices and 11 other properties. Always before, it hired multiple firms to do this. That made sense. Real estate is local.
Fact #4: It has over 500 more properties scheduled for sale.
Fact #5: This time, the U.S.P.S. awarded an exclusive contract to one firm to unload these post offices.
Fact #6: Amazing as it may seem, Feinstein’s husband’s firm got the contract.
It was just one of those things, just one of those crazy things.
Fact #6: Snopes, the debunking site, had to admit it was true. But it means nothing. Nothing!
The story doesn’t sound like bunk to me.
