Postal Carrier Nicholas Beauchene, 26, is having a very bad week. He was caught dumping almost 1,900 pieces of mail in dumpsters in North Arlington and West Orange, New Jersey.
The mail included almost 100 mail-in ballots, more than 600 pieces of first-class mail, and two certified mail pieces.
Authorities charged him with obstruction of mail, among other things. He faces up to 5 1/2 years in prison and fines of up to $225,000.
The Postal Service recovered the mail and delivered it.
The dumped mail proves that we don’t need actual fraud with mail-in ballots to affect the elections, instead, we could have just regular bad actors, like postal carriers who don’t do their job.
