Is this the tip of the iceberg, or just a random one-off? We may never know.

On Wednesday, a 26-year-old postal worker named Nicholas Beauchene was arrested in New Jersey for allegedly trashing 1,875 pieces of mail in dumpsters — including 99 general election ballots and 276 local campaign flyers — over a period of a couple days.

The dumped mail was discovered on October 2, and investigators were able to link Beauchene to it because he was the only mail carrier assigned to deliver those specific parcels on their assigned delivery dates.

The pieces of mail have since been resent to their designated recipients.

Beauchene was charged with one count each of delay, secretion, or detention of mail and of obstruction of mail. If convicted, he faces up to five-and-a-half years and fines of up to $255,000.

So far, there appears to be no motive for his actions. Sources who scanned his social media profiles found nothing to indicate his political leanings one way or the other.

But dumping mail isn’t necessarily a political statement. It could be just one way to deal with work stress.

In 2017, a North Carolina postal carrier pleaded guilty to detaining and delaying U.S. mail. The man admitted he’d been bringing undelivered mail and hiding it on his property for approximately ten years.

When postal inspectors asked him about the mail, he said he couldn’t keep up with his deliveries because of health problems and pressure from his bosses to complete his rural route by 5 p.m.

Other instances include:

August 2016: USPS worker accused of chucking mail in a pizzeria’s trash bin.

December 2015: Authorities said a Queens mailman dumped more than 1,000 pieces of mail in the trash because he was “overwhelmed” by his heavy holiday mail load.

July 2015: A Philadelphia postal worker was accused of delivering 22,000 pieces of mail straight to his garage.

July 2015: A New York City mailman was accused of stealing more than $1 million in tax refunds in a scheme spanning years.

So there may not be anything particularly “sinister” about the New Jersey postal carrier’s actions.

On the other hand, it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have suspicions about whether there will be funny business with voters and ballots.

Seems like that could be a very real possibility, at least according to the most recent Project Veritas exposé.

Videographer James O’Keefe has released a rather alarming piece about “ballot harvesting,” in which third parties collect mail-in ballots and deliver them to election officials.

O’Keefe’s latest investigation shows what is apparently a massive ongoing voter-fraud scheme in Minneapolis linked to Ilhan Omar, member of The Squad and great pal of AOC.

“Ballot harvesting” of more than three ballots in an election is against the law in Minnesota. But in the video, Liban Mohamed, a “ballot broker,” boasts about having 300 ballots in his car from the August primary. “Money is everything,” he laughs on the video. Activists describe how people receive cash when they hand their absentee ballot over so it can be filled out.

So, what’s worse? Postal workers simply dumping ballots in the trash, or political operatives paying for fraudulent ballots?

And people think having to show photo I.D. at the polling station is “voter suppression.” SMH.
