‘I’m a Pedophile’: Biden-Era USPS Mail-In Ballot Chief Caught Trying To Meet Boy For Sex

Fact checked

A high-level US Postal Service official, responsible for mail-in ballots during election season, has been caught trying to meet a 14-year-old boy for sex. The news that yet another high-level official has been exposed as a pedophile raises questions about the true nature of power in D.C.

Russell Rappel-Schmid, who was appointed under President Joe Biden and serves as Chief Data Officer for the U.S. Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC), was caught by pedophile hunters during a child sex sting and confessed “I’m a pedophile” on camera. Just hours earlier he was speaking openly about being attracted to children on social media.

The news comes in the same week it was revealed Hunter Biden referred to his dad Joe Biden as a “pedo” according to newly released messages contained on Hunter’s ‘Laptop from Hell‘.

National Pulse reports: The PRC is responsible for overseeing the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) – which deals with mail-in ballots during election season – and Rappel-Schmid was tasked with running the commission’s data management and compliance with the OPEN Government Data Act.

While federal authorities have not yet confirmed the man in the video is Rappel-Schmid, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department announced that Rappel-Schmid was released from the city’s Central Jail early Tuesday morning after being arrested on Monday. His felony arraignment is set for next Monday.

Rappel-Schmid was reportedly in San Diego for a business conference when he allegedly tried to meet what he thought was a 14-year-old boy for sex. The People vs Predators group filmed the encounter, and Rappel-Schmid can be seen admitting “I’m a pedophile.

In response to the video and criminal charges, the PRC terminated Rappel-Schmid from his position.

The Postal Regulatory Commission has become aware of the recent arrest of one of our employees. Upon becoming aware of this information, the Commission has terminated this employee effective immediately. The Commission is shocked and horrified at these serious allegations and maintains a steadfast commitment to promptly deal with any claims of employee misconduct.

Rappel-Schmid’s profile has been removed from the agency’s website.

He joined the oversight body under President Joe Biden in May and previously served as the State of Alaska’s first chief data officer. Rappel-Schmid also worked at the USPS Office of Inspector General (USPS OIG) on the data analytics team and as an audit manager.
