Postal Service Worker Charged With Dumping Over 100 Absentee Ballots

Source: Newsweek

A Postal Service worker accused of dumping more than 100 absentee ballots has been charged for willfully obstructing the passage of mail.

DeShawn Bojgere, 30, of Louisville, Kentucky, has been charged with the delay or destruction of mail after approximately 111 ballots from the Jefferson County Clerk's Office which had been being sent to voters to be filled out were found in a construction dumpster on Galene Drive.

According to the criminal complaint, Bojgere discarded the large quantity of mail some time between October 5 and October 15. The dumped mail also included 69 mixed class pieces of flat rate mail, 320 second class pieces of mail, and two national election campaign fliers from a political party in Florida.

All the mail was from a single route from one scheduled delivery day.

5. The USPS has not been a part of "the government" since the 1970's.

The fact that he was terminated so fast tells me he was probably a temp worker They have been hiring nearly all temps for years and the service we get reflects this. At any rate he will get a felony conviction. I rather doubt a regular full time employee with benefits would do this . They will be caught because their is a record of every piece of mail sorted including a picture of the package or flat. As soon as anything missing is reported they know where to look.

7. Neuman!

Sounds like a criminally lazy mail carrier who dumped mail that just happened to include ballots. I don't think it was political, he just wanted a day off.

Screwed up one of the last good jobs there.
