Tisha Thompson, Investigative Reporter, NBC 4 Investigative Team

Then there's this: Postal Service employees who have faced sexually assault by their coworkers. In a new report by the NBC News-4 Investigative Team, two Postal workers told investigative reporter Tisha Thompson what they said happened to them and the retaliation they faced after speaking out. She joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss her investigation.
