Another week, another example.

Federal authorities arrested and charged a United States Postal Service worker in New Jersey on Wednesday for allegedly throwing away “bundles of mail,” which included “99 general elections ballots.” The suspect has been identified as 26-year-old New Jersey-native, Nicholas Beauchene.

According to the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey:

Approximately 1,875 pieces of mail – including 627 pieces of first class, 873 pieces of standard class, two pieces of certified mail, 99 general election ballots destined for residents in West Orange, and 276 campaign flyers from local candidates for West Orange Town Council and Board of Education – were recovered from dumpsters in North Arlington and West Orange on Oct. 2, 2020, and Oct. 5, 2020. The mail had been scheduled to be delivered on Sept. 28, Oct. 1, and Oct. 2, 2020, to addresses on certain postal routes in Orange and West Orange. On the delivery dates for which mail was recovered, Beauchene was the only mail carrier assigned to deliver mail to the addresses on the recovered mail.

The recovered mail was placed back into the mail stream for delivery to its intended recipients. Copies of the recovered mail were made and retained as evidence.

It’s not yet clear what Beauchene’s motive was for dumping the mail, but he could face up to five years in jail and a $250,000 fine for the delay of mail charge. A “maximum penalty” six months in jail and a $5,000 fine is possible for the obstruction of mail charge.

There needs to be more evidence and information concerning this arrest before we jump to conclusions and call this voter fraud.

Chief medical advisor on the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force Dr. Anthony Fauci said back in August that there’s “no reason” that Americans can’t vote “in-person” as long as they take the proper precautions.
