US Postal worker accused of tossing campaign mailers in dumpster

Campaign mailers for a Texas GOP congressional candidate allegedly wound up in the garbage rather than in potential constituents’ mailboxes.

Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls, who is running for the House seat in the state’s 22nd congressional district in the Houston area, tweeted out a video that purports to show, according to him, a U.S. Post Office employee engaging in campaign interference by throwing away fliers.

“A US Postal worker was just caught on video throwing a stack of my campaign mailers in a dumpster. Some patriots nearby heard a noise when she tossed them in & went to investigate. They found a stack of them and called me. No wonder people are skeptical of mail in voting,” the sheriff declared.

He also tweeted out a picture of what apparently was found in the dumpster.

The pro-Trump sheriff, who is also a veteran of the U.S. Army with two Bronze Stars, pointed out that this form of alleged political sabotage is particularly detrimental to his bid for higher office. “We’re running a grassroots campaign and don’t have money for TV. I rely on mailers to reach voters and it’s sad to see a federal employee interfering with that.”

Postal Service employees who are found guilty of tampering with the mail in any way can face jail time and monetary penalties under federal law.

Sheriff Nehls makes a good point about mail-in-voting fraud. With voter rolls being out of date, people dying or moving, invalid registrations under our primitive system, the potential for mailbox theft, automatic voter registration at the DMV, and whatnot, handing out ballots or ballot applications like Halloween candy with no chain of custody is a particularly ill-advised idea.

This incident suggests that the flip side can also be dangerous to our democracy. That is, postal workers who might make mail-in ballots from Republican-leaning areas disappear.

Which makes the Obama push to make voting by mail the way everyone does it more clear, doesn't it?

If this is true, then the postal worker who did it should be fired an then prosecuted for tampering with the mail, which is a federal crime...
